New arrangement sends domains to Sedo before SnapNames.
Domain name registrar 1&1 has begun sending expired domain names to Sedo as a preliminary stop through the expiration cycle.
The domain names are listed for sale on Sedo in a special category with starting bids at $79.00.
1&1 is continuing to partner with SnapNames for expired domains, but Sedo is the first stop. Domains that don’t sell at Sedo are then sent through SnapNames.
Sending the domain names to Sedo first could expose expiring domain names to more end users.
1&1 and Sedo are part of the same family of companies. However, the companies just recently started working more closely together. 1&1 didn’t join Sedo’s aftermarket syndication network until just last year.
