From the GoDaddy press release and DNW analysis:

With GoDaddy’s Premium Listings rolled into Afternic, there will now be one common platform for listing domains for sale on GoDaddy and the more than 100 partner sites in Afternic’s Premium distribution network.

“The concept of Afternic has been ‘list once, sell everywhere’,” said GoDaddy Director of Product Development Paul Nicks. “That’s really going to come to fruition now. You don’t have to list your domains on GoDaddy Premium listings, Afternic, and all these various spots. You’ll have one control panel you go to and manage all your listings.”

This also means that domain name owners no longer need to choose between registering their domains at GoDaddy to take advantage of Premium Listings or at another registrar to list them on Afternic.
