Sedo, one of the world’s largest domain name trading platforms with 19 million domains listed for sale, has announced a partnership with Donuts – a global provider of new top-level domains such as .AGENCY, .LIVE, .TODAY, .CHAT and hundreds more. Donuts’ platinum domain name inventory is now featured on the SedoMLS network – the domain distribution network powered by Sedo.
Through this collaboration, Sedo customers and SedoMLS distribution partners would now gain access to previously unavailable platinum inventory from Donuts’ more than 200 new generic top-level domain (gTLD) extensions, such as bitcoin.money, fake.news, credit.repair and clean.energy.
In addition to supporting Donuts Platinum domains within the SedoMLS network, Sedo has also launched support for domains carrying a “premium renewal fee.” All registrants of domains that carry premium renewals can now list their domains for sale via the SedoMLS network and immediately get widespread distribution, and liquidity, thru their network of registrar partners.
Before launching on the SedoMLS network, some recent Donuts platinum sales via Sedo would include:
super.market – $25,000
black.market – $30,000
tv.show – $35,000
the.news –$ 50,000
“We’ve already had great traction with Sedo, which is why we think SedoMLS is an ideal platform for providing buyers access to our platinum inventory of names,” said Matt Overman, senior vice president of sales, Donuts Inc. “Collaboration with Sedo and their huge network of registrar partners means more eyes on these domains, which we hope will drive greater awareness and more sales of our platinum inventory.”
Domain Names: .ltd, .company, .careers
Via Sedo’s make-offer bidding platform, buyers would now also be able to negotiate the domain sales and renewal price. Sedo’s brokers will directly support these negotiations.
“We’re excited to offer the Donuts platinum inventory and to showcase our support of tiered pricing, which is now available to all participating SedoMLS registrars and our distribution partners,” said Tobias Flaitz, chief executive officer (CEO) of Sedo. “This is a win-win-win for registries, buyers, sellers and domainers alike. We believe Sedo is the only provider to offer these services and with Donuts being an industry leader in making its inventory more readily available, this paves the path for other registries to come on board in this capacity, too.”
Headquartered in Cologne (Germany) with an office in Boston (USA), Sedo offers buyers and sellers a full suite of domain-related services, such as domain traffic monetization, auctions, appraisals, transfers as well as marketing and promotional campaigns.
Donuts Inc. holds one of the world’s largest portfolios of new top-level domains, and offers a wide variety of names for use as business identifiers (such as .ltd, .company), for navigation (such as .careers, .support), in vertical markets (such as .photography, .cafe, or .builders) or in broad-based generics (such as .life, .world or .live). Donuts’ headquarters are in Kirkland, WA; it has offices in Denver, CO; Washington, DC; Dublin, Ireland and Beijing, China.
