Sedo.com announces partnership with CentralNic

Cambridge, MA and London, UK - Sedo.com, the leading domain marketplace just announced a strategic partnership with CentralNic, the global registry for domain names with regional and country-specific identities such as .uk.com, .eu.com and .us.com.

Gavin Brown, CentralNic's Chief Technology Officer, said "Sedo has been at the forefront of promoting CentralNic domain names in the aftermarket sector. Last year Sedo brokered the largest ever sale for a CentralNic domain name and we're sure that they'll soon break their own record. We're looking forward to a long and successful relationship."

This integration will allow CentralNic users to acquire the registered domain they are looking for, by either following a link to the offer page at Sedo where the domain is for sale, or by using Sedo's domain brokerage service where one of Sedo's experienced domain brokers will work to acquire the domain for them.

Both parties are equally excited about the prospects this partnership brings. "CentralNic has proven they're an industry vanguard, perfectly suited to reap commission revenues from integrating Sedo's database of aftermarket premium domains. Beyond additional commission revenues, according to internal statistical data, partnering with Sedo should provide CentralNic with a significant incidental boost in already-strong domain renewals," Says Jude Augusta, Sedo's Director of Partner Development.
