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 8 figures for the keywords that are listed for sale.

From what I can see, all of the .CO domain names up for sale in the auction have reserve prices. The reserves range from $500 – $999 all the way to the $10,000 – $24,999 ranges. From my perspective, many of these reserve prices seem fairly reasonable based on public sales for one word .CO domain names in the last year, as recorded by NameBio. I don’t follow the .CO market closely, so I don’t know if the reserve ranges are good on a wholesale level (ie for investment purposes), but they seem in line with where NameBio has recorded similar sales in the last year.

I own at least a few .CO domain names (Elliot.CO and Bahamas.CO to name two off the top of my head), but I do not plan to participate in the auction.

  1. Bitcoin.co would bring in a pretty penny but it’s owned by Bitcoin.org
    Cryptocurrency domains will only get hotter as time goes by.

  2. Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the interest in submitting names for this exclusive auction.

    For this particular auction we’re not accepting general applications. However, we will consider high value (commercial) English language, short one word .CO’s with a realistic reserve price.

    If you have .CO names meeting this criteria, they can be submitted through the normal channels: our Customer Care team or your Account Manager if you have one already. After receiving the domains, will review them and should they qualify for the auction, our Sales Team will then reach out to you directly.

    Please also be sure to review the existing inventory as a guideline on our expectations of quality and reserves BEFORE submitting your potential .CO domains and requested reserves. Note from Auction Manager: because we already have some very high quality domains at competitive prices, reserves will likely need to be lower than $799 for domains to be accepted.

    Hopefully this helps clear up the submission process on this auction but should there be further questions please contact our Customer Care team at contact@sedo.com.

    Thanks,
    Team Sedo
