Sedo recently entered the expired domain name auction business. I was just informed that the company made it easier for users to search for expiry inventory without having to sort through other types of inventory listed for sale on Sedo (BIN, make offer, private auction…etc.). The dedicated expiry auction page can be found here: https://expiringdomains.sedo.com.
On this expiry page within Sedo’s website, users can search for domain names with several filters. It looks like the company is importing data from Majestic and Google, which has information such as popularity and search volume. Users can also export auction lists to upload them to their preferred evaluation tools if that is preferred.
One thing users will notice is a button for “Expert Mode” and “Basic Mode,” with basic being the default. When searching with “expert” mode, there are more search options and filters.
Here is some additional information Sedo shared with me:
“As you may be already aware, 2,000 new domains are added daily to the Expiring Domains inventory, enabling customers to always have the opportunity to find some real domain gems that already have a backlink profile and existing traffic. Starting bids for these auctions are just $79, allowing almost anyone the opportunity to buy valuable domains at low cost.
Some of you have already helped test this new feature and for that we are very grateful. And in the very near future we will be introducing additional useful features, so it definitely pays to visit https://expiringdomains.sedo.com regularly! As always we appreciate your ongoing support and should you have any questions or want to provide direct feedback, please let me know.”
I think it would be helpful if Sedo added some of their other filters – such as one and two word domain names.
I have not used Sedo to bid on its expiry auctions, but I will definitely check it out.
