« Back to Domain Name Dictionary | Definition of After-market

The domain name after-market is the secondary market for Internet domain names. Here, a party interested in acquiring a domain name that is already registered bids or negotiates a price to effect the transfer of registration from the registered holder of the domain name.

The professional pursuit of speculation in the domain aftermarket is known as domaining.

The domain after-market is serviced by auction houses which provide communication methods for buyers and sellers to interact, often anonymously, to negotiate and complete a transaction. Auction houses often provide additional services, such as escrow.
