Two press releases out this morning announcing partnerships in the domain industry.
“”Sedo, the online domain marketplace, and Moniker(R), a leading domain name registrar, auction house and brokerage, today announced an expansion of their partnership that will enable users to search for both new and previously registered domains in one convenient location.
“A crucial factor to a business’s success is their domain name’s effectiveness in allowing users to find and remember them; and there’s no reason for businesses to settle for a less than an ideal domain name,” said Craig Snyder, General Manager of Moniker. “Our experience in the industry is unmatched in assisting businesses in finding their ideal domain name, as we’ve been offering customers domain registration, auction and brokerage services for more than a decade. Now, by expanding our partnership with Sedo, we’re also providing access to millions of domains that are already registered and listed for sale.”
With more than 15 million domains listed for sale, Sedo is the world’s largest domain marketplace and monetization provider. Through its Multi Listing Service, SedoMLS, the company enables registrars to give customers an added convenience that will help them find the right domain, whether its already been registered or not.””
In the other announcement Afternic’s Domain Listing Service (DLS) has expanded to include Godaddy.com in their list of registrars:
“”Afternic, announced today that names listed through Afternic’s Domain Listing Service (DLS) will appear within the main search results for Go Daddy domain names.
“The Domain Aftermarket comprises domains that are currently registered but are offered for sale by the domain owner. Go Daddy facilitates the sale by showing relevant Aftermarket domains when a consumer searches for a domain to purchase. For example, if a business owner searches for running.com and finds it is unavailable, Go Daddy will offer premium alternatives based on the keywords, like fitrunning.com, or runners.com.”
“Afternic’s service allows domain owners to list their name on its Domain Listing Service (DLS), which aggregates all available domains for sale in the Aftermarket, and displays them through a network of more than 70 resellers, including Go Daddy.”
