GoDaddy has announced that it will be shutting down Uniregistry Market, the parking platform, and other services on April 18th.

As part of the integration with GoDaddy, the Uni Market, parking platform, self-brokerage service product, and Uni App for market account management will be retired. Users are advised to save a copy of any relevant data they would like to keep, as historical information will not be moved to Afternic. GoDaddy acquired Uniregistry on February 11, 2020, and provided a migration tool for transferring Uni Market listings to Afternic. However, there may be a risk of data loss.

After the retirement date, domain names will no longer be able to earn revenue or process any payments. Users who are using the cash parking services should set up or migrate to an existing Afternic account and change their nameservers. GoDaddy will disable the ability to add new listings to Uni Market and Uni parking accounts within three weeks. The Self Brokering service will also be retired, allowing sellers to wrap up ongoing negotiations until the retirement date. After the migrations on April 18, 2023, users will receive a welcome email from with all the necessary information to manage their Afternic account.
