    Customers can list their domains on SedoMLS at Premium level.

    Sedo has announced that domain name registrars DirectNIC and United Domains are now fully integrated with SedoMLS at the Premium level. This means that customers of these domain registrars can add their domains to SedoMLS’ instant transfer system and also purchase domains directly through the registrar.

    Both registrars were previously integrated with SedoMLS but only on the purchasing end; customers could not list their domains with SedoMLS Premium.

    In terms of .com registrations, DirectNIC was the 24th largest domain name registrar at the end of September. United Domains was the 54th largest.

    SedoMLS Premium is similar to AfternicDLS Premium. Registrants at participating registrars can list their domains for sale and take advantage of instant transfer technology. That means customers at any participating registrar can buy the domains in their shopping cart and immediately get control of them.

    For example, last week I sold a domain name through Afternic that was registered at Moniker but purchased by someone at Network Solutions. The transfer occurred instantaneously without any involvement from me.

    From a registrar perspective, the Sedo program differs by allowing registrars to add their own mark up to the price.

  • The standard SedoMLS needs to be opt-in just like the premium. Instead, Sedo forces all domains to be listed at its partner sites. The 20% fee charged isn’t made clear during a transaction, one has to click a little link to see what the fees are.
