Afternic emails Epik domain name owners regarding Fast Transfer


Afternic sent an email today to Epik domain name owners regarding Fast Transfer. These are Afternic customers that are selling their Epik registered domain names using Afternic Fast Transfer.

People with domain names in their Afternic account that are registered with Epik will no longer be able to participate in the Afternic Fast Transfer program starting January 5, 2021.

The complete story of this issue and the termination of the Afternic/GoDaddy/Epik relationship was described in detail in my post 3 days ago. There are about 40 comments in that post already. I guess this is GoDaddy’s way of acknowledging my post as they have not made a single comment on this issue.

Here is the email from today:

Dear ********,

We are contacting you because according to our records one or more of the domain names in your Afternic account are registered with Epik. Please be aware that starting January 5, 2021, Epik will no longer participate in the Afternic Fast Transfer program.

What does this mean for you:

  • Domain(s) registered at Epik will no longer be eligible to opt in to Afternic’s Fast Transfer program
  • Existing domain(s) opted in to Fast Transfer through Epik will remain available for sale in your Afternic account but will be opted out of Fast Transfer

If you have any questions please email

Best regards,
The Afternic Team
