In a press release out this morning, described as a “First-of-its-Kind Partnership Enables Premium Registry Reserve Domain Names to be Quickly Listed and Sold through Hundreds of Partners, Including Top Registrars, Sedo announced that , a leading backend registry provider, CentralNic, joined the SedoMS to sell premium domain names
“For the first time, this partnership will give Registry Operators the ability to sell premium registry reserve names through a network of hundreds of sales partners, including top registrars around the world.”
“CentralNic’s integration with SedoMLS Premium Fast Transfer network is a game changer. ”
“Through its vast network, SedoMLS will enable CentralNic and its registry clients to reach the widest audience and ensure that the right names end up with the right people,” said Ben Crawford, CEO at CentralNic. “SedoMLS offers us the easiest and most straight forward way to distribute an increasingly large inventory of premium domains through a global registrar network.

CentralNic is also the backend provider for .XYZ the new gTLD with the most domain names registrations, as well as .wiki, .ink
Congrats to Sedo and CentralNic.
I believe this to be a game changer!!!
Now companies (end users and not domainers) will be able to easily find and buy the best names and start using them. And they will use them because they will have paid a premium as a buy-now or reserve-auction and will want a return on their investment.
I predict that within about 6 months we will start seeing some of these sites becoming live.
