今天小编收到AfterNIC发来的一封标题为“Exciting News From Afternic!”的邮件，在手机上看，还以为是促销信息呢，想想不对啊，外国人可没有过中秋的习惯，哈。Godaddy收购 AfterNIC早有耳闻，但是现在AfterNIC才正式向用户宣布这一消息。不过，小编可不认为这是一个好消息，至少对国内用户不是，Godaddy现在对中国用户很有成见，基本上给力的优惠国内用户只有看的份，现在收购了AfterNIC，估计对中国米农也不会感冒，店大欺客是必然的，你说呢？

Dear Zhou Huixiang,
We have some exciting news to share with you. Afternic has agreed to be acquired by GoDaddy. This will be made public later today but as a valued member of Afternic we wanted you to hear it from us first. This has some powerful benefits for you and our industry.
First, Afternic will continue to operate under the Afternic brand. Your account services will remain in place to support you. Your business terms with Afternic will remain the same and you will continue to manage your account directly from the Afternic.com control panel.
Second, GoDaddy will be joining Afternic’s Fast Transfer network, meaning your domains will be available on a Fast Transfer basis to GoDaddy’s massive audience of customers seeking a domain. Fast Transfer domains enjoy by far the highest sales velocity so this should translate into incremental revenue for you.
Most important, GoDaddy is making this move as an endorsement of Afternic as the industry standard by which cross-registrar fulfillment of aftermarket transactions can occur. Afternic will operate as an industry utility. The adoption of—and investment in—this technology ensure that that the domain industry can reduce friction and increase velocity of aftermarket domain sales.
We believe these changes will benefit our industry as we move towards an increasingly distributed and unified domain aftermarket and are excited to work with you to realize this vision.
We’ve included some questions and answers about the transaction. We invite you to contact your Afternic representative with any other questions you may have.
Chairman and CEO
