This particular offer expired on October 31, but I’m thinking the folks at AfterNIC would be willing to renew anyone’s expired membership for free, especially if you generate revenue via domain parking or via one of AfterNIC’s other affiliate offerings.
Going free is a smart move on AfterNIC’s part. They need to get serious about competing with Sedo, which has always been free.
