NameJet, LLC Key Developments

Afternic Launches an Exclusive Partnership with NameJet and Desi Networks, LLC

Afternic launched an exclusive partnership with NameJet and Desi Networks, LLC to leverage its technology and distribution network to a new premium domain extension - .DESI. This partnership allows Afternic to promote .DESI premium domains to a vast audience of potential buyers. This new generic top-level domain (gTLD), "Desi", is derived from Sanskrit and refers to the culture, people and products originating from the Indian sub-continent. Translated as "one from our country", it has strong cultural relevance and further promotes the impact of emerging markets to the global community. With this strategic partnership, Afternic plans to identify, appraise and broker the most valuable strings in .DESI, maximizing the revenue opportunity for this fast-growing region. Additionally, Afternic is set to promote the .DESI gTLD to its global network of registrars and hosting companies, maximizing the breadth of the Afternic global distribution network with NameJet, a long-standing partner and auction provider for the Sunrise period, where brand and trademark owners can secure their names. Next is the Landrush period, a way to purchase available domain names early. Last, general availability, where registrations open to the public and premium auctions occur. Furthermore, Afternic's technology and distribution network better streamlines domain trading through transparent, scalable processes, which opens up more quality domain inventory to millions of potential buyers around the world.
