Sedo announced a few minutes ago that 22.cn joined their SedoMLS. As demand for domains in Asia grows this is certainly a smart decision to keep building their network with Asian registrars. Recent auctions for premium .CN domains previously reserved by CNNIC have shown demand is strong in the region.
22.cn Joins SedoMLS, Continuing the Network’s Asian Expansion
Sedo, the world’s largest domain marketplace and monetization provider, today announced that Chinese registrar 22.cn has joined the SedoMLS Premium partner network. SedoMLS is the world’s only global domain distribution network, making it easy for buyers around the world to purchase premium domains from Sedo’s inventory of over 18 million.
“It is mutually beneficial for 22.cn to join SedoMLS since 22.cn’s customers are able to directly purchase domains all over the world”, said Jianguo He, CEO of 22.cn. “Dealing with multiple currencies or language barriers are no longer a limiting factor. Meanwhile, domains owned by 22.cn’s customers can also be displayed to the world to increase the domain inventory. 22.cn is expecting to achieve a win-win result by improving the user experience and increasing the total amount of transactions.”
“By adding new registrars to the SedoMLS Premium network, we are offering our customers an even greater chance of making a sale to the right end user, regardless of their location,” said Sedo’s CEO Tobias Flaitz. “The Chinese market is the fastest-growing in the world, which is why Sedo recently launched its Chinese website. We look forward to using our new site, as well as our partnership with 22.cn and other Chinese registrars, to bring premium domains to end users across the world.”
Hangzhou Aiming Network Co.,Ltd (22.cn) is a very famous domain name registrar in China, which has already approved accreditation by ICANN and CNNIC. Currently, there are approximately one million domains under their management (including gtlds and cctlds). With a rich domain name experience and strong technology, 22.cn is committed to providing quality services for domain registration, domain backorders, domain escrow, domain transaction, domain auctions and domain brokerage.
The SedoMLS Promotion Network is the largest domain distribution network, with 650 global sales partners, including Network Solutions, Tucows, Moniker and other top registrars. It supports more TLDs than any other domain distribution network, and provides its registrar partners with a new revenue stream. SedoMLS partners display matches from Sedo’s unique inventory. Some partners redirect potential buyers to Sedo.com to continue with the purchase, while others allow buyers to purchase a name directly by searching for it, adding it to their shopping cart, and completing the partner’s online checkout page.
