Afternic adds .xyz and .io to its Fast Transfer network

Afternic’s Fast Transfer network distributes your for sale domain names to the widest list of partner registrars, resellers, and affiliates in the Afternic network.

Up until now, Fast Transfer capabilities have been enabled for the .com, .net, .biz, .org, .pw, .co, .de and .info domain extensions.

Starting December 7th, .xyz and .io are joining the Fast Transfer network.

The Fast Transfer network currently includes over 90 partners, contributing to 85 million monthly search queries across our network.

Fast Transfer provides immediate transfer to buyers after payment is received. For sellers, it means no work required to transfer your domain name upon selling, while typically allowing them to get paid quicker with a faster closing time compared with Afternic’s standard network.

To enable Fast Transfer for your .xyz and .io domain names from December 7th, follow these steps:

  • Include a Buy Now price up to $100,000: Fast Transfer supports domains with a Buy Now price up to $100,000.
    Domains priced above $100,000 will be distributed through the standard network, but they won’t be eligible for Fast Transfer.
  • Check your domain’s registrar: Because Fast Transfer requires specific platform technology, your .xyz or .io domains need to be registered with a Fast Transfer-enabled registrar. Check if your registrar is on the list below.
  • Check your expiration date: To opt in to the Fast Transfer network, your domains should have more than 30 days left until they expire.
  • Confirm your registration period: To comply with ICANN regulations, your domains must have been registered with your current registrar for at least 60 days.

It remains a mystery why Afternic has not yet enabled the Fast Transfer network for the .us extension…
