Sedo adds three ccTLDs to distribution network.
SedoMLS, the domain listing distribution system for Sedo, has signed up new registries that will enable it to sell more types of domain names.
Last week Sedo
announced a partnership with EURid, the .eu registry, added the .eu domain extension to the SedoMLS Premium network. [Sedo was able to do this because EURid, the .eu registry, made its transfer system automatic.]
Today the company announced a deal with CentralNic to add a number of “top level” domains to SedoMLS.
I put “top level” in quotes because only two of the added domains are true top level domains. The others are pseudo top level domains.
The two real ones are the country codes .pw and .la. Officially, these are the country codes for Palau and Laos, but they are marketed as “Professional Web” and “Los Angeles” respectively.
The other domains are really second level domains that look like ccTLDs but run under existing .com, .net, and .org domains. Examples include .cn.com, .jp.net, and .us.com.
For .eu, .pw, and .la, the addition to SedoMLS should mean a more vibrant aftermarket.
Graham Schreiber says
Sedo might well consider NOT investing heavily in the Sub-Domains, offered by CentralNic, based on elements of Rosetta Stone V Google.
