Sedo Price Cap Increased to $50,000


I want to pass along some news from Sedo. According to an email I received from Sedo, the company has increased its price cap to $50,000. Previously, the cap was $10,000 for domain names. The news will be announced in a forthcoming email to Sedo clients.

In the meantime, here is the information about the change from email I received: (more…) → Read More

Sedo Seeking Adult, Gambling & Gaming Domain Names


Sedo_Logo_New_RGBI received an email from Sedo today with a call for domain name submissions. The company is seeking out premium adult, gambling, and gaming domain names, which will be represented by two of the company's brokers at The European Summit. The event takes place in early March, so people who would like to work with Sedo on selling their domain names, should get in touch soon.

I do not know how Sedo intends to promote the domain names at the event, nor do I know the commission rate for deals worked out as a result of submitting them. If you are interested in learning more, contact Sedo directly with your questions and I presume they will respond to you in a timely fashion.

Below the email I received, which contains the contact information for submitting domain names. Please do not submit your domain names here because Sedo likely won't see it and I have no interest in seeing it either! (more…) → Read More

3 Domain Names Lead GreatDomains Auction


The first GreatDomains auction of 2017 ended today, and a little more than $170,000 worth of domain names were sold via Sedo. The top three sales for the auction were three letter .com ( domain names. A four number .com domain name had a strong showing as well. Five auctions hit five figures.

The top auction sale was, which sold for $47,011. The second highest sale was, which sold for $41,001. I would not be surprised if these domain names end up with Chinese registrants, but we will need to wait and see once the sales close.

As always, the GreatDomains auction ended this afternoon, so these sales have probably not closed yet. Sedo will report their closed sales to NameBio and DNJournal once the deals are concluded.

Here is the list of sales from this month's auction: (more…) → Read More Will 2006 Registration Come to Fruition?


The stock market has taken off quite a bit in the last month or so with this so called "Trump Rally." In fact, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has come very close to hitting the 20,000 mark for the first time ever. The DJIA is currently trading at 19,874, having hit an intraday high of 19,961 on December 14. Perhaps today will be the day it passes 20,000 or perhaps it will come back down and we will have to wait.

Interestingly, it looks like someone may have been hopeful about the Dow hitting 20,000 back in 2006. The domain name was registered by someone in January of 2006. At that time, it looks like the DJIA was trading somewhere around 11,000 depending on the day.

It doesn't look like has been developed, according to, and I can only assume the meaning of the domain name is related to the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting the 20,000 milestone. Of course, it is possible that it has some other meaning. The domain name currently resolves to a generic GoDaddy landing page. → Read More

Sedo Down but Should be Back Shortly


If you attempted to visit Sedo this morning, you likely encountered an error message. When I visited, the only thing I saw was this error message displayed:

Service Unavailable - DNS failure

The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try again later.

I reached out to a representative from Sedo and I was told the company knows about this issue and is working on it. I was also told they expect to have the error resolved shortly. If customer accounts (such as parking) were impacted by this downtime, I am sure Sedo will address it with an email to clients. → Read More
