RRPproxy now offers resellers access to the Afternic marketplace

St. Ingbert, 2013-04-08, The Metaregistry RRPproxy, a division of the German based domain registrar Key-Systems GmbH, has joined the Afternic marketplace as a Premium Partner. Afternic, a NameMedia company, currently offers the largest portfolio of “Fast Transfer” premium domain names in the world. RRPproxy's customers now have access to this wide range of inventory via the API and the RRPproxy web interface.

Afternic’s Domain Listing Service is the world’s largest domain marketplace, offering millions of currently registered domains for sale. “Many of our resellers have already shown interest in premium domains, and we are very excited to be able to offer this product to them”, states Alexander Siffrin, CEO of Key-Systems. “Afternic’s large volume of high quality, premium domains will be a great asset to offer our customers.”

With the Afternic integration, Key-Systems’ RRPproxy customers will now have access to Afternic’s premium domain inventory through their reseller interface. Any domain name that is registered and listed in the Afternic market will return the price associated with the domain purchase to the RRP clients. At customers’ side, just a minimum of implementation work is required in order to participate in this revenue channel.

Key-Systems is a member of the KeyDrive S.A. holding, which includes existing Afternic partners such as NameDrive, Snapnames, and Moniker. Key-Systems’ retail portal domaindiscount24 will join the Afternic integration as well, adding to the value of the partnership and offering more domain choices across Europe.
