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:
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.
