Sedo 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

Easy Deals at Afternic and Sedo


afternic-and-sedo-logosI generally prefer to work on my own, without much outside assistance to buy and sell domain names. I opportunistically buy domain names at marketplaces, but I have never been one to regularly check or use domain sale venues such as Afternic or Sedo. Both venues have good reputations, but I preferred to go about things on my own.

In the last month or so, I have had good experiences with both Sedo and Afternic and I thought I would give them both props.

A few months ago, I listed a handful of domain names on Afternic with buy it now prices. I know that buy it now prices help sell inventory more rapidly, but I don't like to price inventory in a dynamic market like the domain name resale market. I listed a select group of names I would be happy to move at set prices and forgot about them.

One morning, I received an email offer via one of my landing pages. I quoted a price for the domain name, and a few hours later, I received an Afternic notification that the domain name was sold. Within a very short period of time → Read More
