Sedo’s May Great Domains Auction: ” The Future Edition”

Sedo LogoSedo is hosting a special auction for next month’s Great Domains monthly auction. The auction is billed as Great Domains + The Future Edition. According to a press release distributed by Sedo yesterday, this auction will offer “a look into the domain market future.”

When I saw the company’s announcement on Twitter, I reached out  to get more information about the May auction. Christian Voss, Chief Marketing Officer at Sedo, shared this with me:

“GreatDomains are Sedo’s signature auctions and our May event is going to be an enhanced version with a glimpse to the future. We’re excited to extend this opportunity for our Registry partners to feature exclusive Premium names attracting new potential buyers and expanding the focus beyond .com names. New gTLD names will have success in GreatDomains auctions as .com names have had.”

The auction is being held in conjunction with the WHD/NamesCon India events. The auction will open on May 12th, and it will run through May 19th at 4 pm Mumbai time (6:30 am on the US east coast). I am told that the company will be promoting the auction during the WHD/NamesCon events, where Sedo will be an exhibitor. I was also told that there will be a live panel discussion during the event, and Sedo broker Dave Evanson is scheduled to speak on the panel and chat about the domain names in the auction.

Sedo is currently seeking domain name submissions for the auction. If you wish to submit domain names for consideration, you should get in touch with Sedo directly. There is a submission form on their website. You will need to have an account at Sedo and be logged into the account in order to submit domain names for the auction.

  1. I am looking forward to this event. Even tho I am old school and mainly into .com .org and .gov domains. .net I don’t think ever took off and am thinking these might be the same. But a bank just changed theirs from .com to .bank.
