This has been on the todo list for a while. Today we're rolling out support for six languages. At this point we have the UI translated. We're in the process of finding a similar word database for each language as well and adding IDN support. So consider the UI translation a little taste of what's to come.

Resale Market Search

Posted By Ryan Stout on 02/17/2011

Last week we pushed up a change to the option to search for domains through Sedo, namely that we removed it and replaced it with the ability to search for resale domains on The key difference is in the implementation. The Sedo search was slow due to the requirement that we make an external request for each domain. The Afternic search is just as fast as the normal search. So after letting people try it out for a week we have decided to enable it by default. Starting now, any searches will show resale domains (and prices in most cases) in with your normal search results. You can disable the option easily by unchecking the "For Sale on Resale Marketplaces (Afternic)" box at the bottom right of the options section.
