"After two years and a lot of hard work, we've determined the (domain re-selling) segment does not have sufficient opportunity to continue devoting resources toward it

Nice find, db.

I have bought a lot of domains through them. And they used to be the premier site. But I stopped visiting them when they turned off the chat room. If I wanted to buy a domain there was no reason I would not just directly contact the owner and make an offer. They lacked the something extra.

Goodbye!

I think Register.Com is playing fishy ! maybe some sort of market manipulation to buy back their own stocks. ! . I bet the site will never go down !. ..By the way have u visited afternic.com recently?.. Their page is clean and nowhere mentions of financial problems ..,

It was a great idea at first, but soon turned to waste.

I bought several names there, but found out that shill bidding was rampant. They never seemed to get this under control.

So where do people go to find sites to buy? Ebay doesn't seem to have anything worthwhile...

JamesR-

The best alternative to Afternic that I have found is DNForums - lots of sellers and buyers hang there, including a bunch of ex-Afternic users (After-Afternic?).

They seem willing to deal, and you will often find decent names for a reasonable price.
