Last Chance to Get a Discounted Merge Ticket from Sedo

0

The Merge conference is set to begin in Orlando, Florida very soon. I know several people who either arrived within the past couple of days or who are set to travel down to Orlando today or over the weekend for the conference.

For those of you who have been on the fence or otherwise undecided, Sedo is extending a special promotional offer to get a discounted show ticket. Sedo tweeted a link to the discount page a couple of hours ago:

Using Sedo’s promo code with 60% off the current ticket price, the cost of a conference ticket is knocked down from

Sedo Great Domains Auction Results – August 2018

4

The monthly Great Domains auction on Sedo concluded yesterday, and the auction ended with 40 domain names sold at a value of over $130,000. The three largest sales in the auction were EBF.com ($30,500), Sudden.com ($24,950), and CYN.com ($24,950).

Because the auctions closed just yesterday, the sales have not closed yet. They will be reported to DNJournal and NameBio for recordkeeping once the deals are finalized.

One thing you’ll see is that the auctions were sold in US dollars, GB Pounds, and Euros. It’s a bit confusing, and I wish Sedo would require the auctions to be in one currency. Just my little $.02.

Here are the domain names that sold with the winning bid:

Christian.com Sold for $600,000 via Sedo

Sedo broker Dave Evanson just announced via Twitter that he brokered the sale of Christian.com for $600,000:

Once the sale is archived on DNJournal by Ron Jackson, it will rank as the fifth largest sale of the year (to date). The sale will rank above the $550,000 sale of Inception.com and below the $750,000 sale of Liquid.com.

According to NameBio, Christian.com last publicly sold in 2009 for

Results from Sedo’s .CO Auction

10

At the end of July, Sedo hosted a special .CO domain name auction. The auction concluded on August 2nd, and I received the results of the auction to share with readers.

Vegas.CO was the largest sale at $18,500 followed by Hire.CO at $10,099. The third largest auction was Weather.CO, which sold for $9,999. In total, nearly $80,000 worth of .CO domain names were sold in this auction.

The results of the auction are listed below. Because the auction closed a week ago, it is very likely that many of these sales have not yet closed. Once they close, Sedo will report them to DNJournal and NameBio for archiving.

Sedo to Host Premium .CO Auction

10

In honor of the .CO registry’s 8th birthday, Sedo will be hosting what is billed as a Premium .CO domain name auction starting on July 26 and running through August 2. I was told the domain names in the auction are owned by Sedo clients. I was also told that Sedo would consider adding super premium .CO domain names if customers are interested in listing them. Some of the .CO domain names names included in the auction are:

  • DN.CO
  • CV.CO
  • Ad.CO
  • Trip.CO
  • Deal.CO
  • Find.CO
  • Meet.CO
  • First.CO
  • Vegas.CO
  • Payment.CO

If these domain names were in the .com extension, we would be talking into the

Sedo’s GDPR Solution: “Owner Self-Verification”

6

Sedo just sent out an email to customers in response to the upcoming GDPR changes that are going to make domain name ownership verification more difficult. Many registrars will likely eliminate public Whois records, and European registrants at other registrars will likely have their Whois information private or not shown depending on the registrar.

Obviously this change will have an impact on the aftermarket and domain name resale marketplaces.

Sedo just sent an email to customers introducing their solution to the GDPR issue. They’re calling it “Owner Self-Verification.” Here’s the email that Sedo distributed to clients this afternoon so you can read about what the company is doing to ensure its listings are accurate:
