NameCheap Launches New Domain Market With Buy It Now and Auction Options

Namecheap, the world’s second-largest domain registrar and one of the fastest-growing companies in the space, officially announced the launch of an all-new domain market this morning. The Namecheap Market, developed by the company's

technology team, gives buyers a state of the art platform to quickly search, find, and purchase high-value domain names via in-house auctions or Buy it Now listings. 

The NameCheap announcement said the new market is designed for entrepreneurs looking for the perfect domain name for a startup or new project or domain investors striving to expand their portfolio, noting " The new marketplace is the ideal destination for discovering untapped, unique, clever, brandable, and memorable domain names." 

After being quietly launched in beta a few weeks ago, the Namecheap Market is now available to everyone and currently features more than 300,000 domain auctions, as well as millions of Buy It Now listings.

 NameCheap CEO Richard Kirkendall said, “When I started Namecheap way back in 2000, I truly believed that domain names were the digital real estate of the future, and I wanted to make the process of finding and buying them accessible and simple for everyone. Now more than two decades later, many domain names have indeed become valuable digital assets, and we are once again making the process of buying and selling those assets a seamless and easy process with the new Namecheap Market.” 

With more than 20 years of highly rated customer service and 14 million domains currently under management, Namecheap has continued to increase its market share in the growing domain industry and the new market is likely to accelerate that trend.
