Sedo’s Report: 80% Of People Say That New gTLDs Are Important

Just found a press release from Sedo that I missed last month. I didn’t find it in any of the other domain blogs so I thought it was worth mentioning.

Sedo did a survey that queried more than 1,150 individuals from the United States, United Kingdom, China and Germany about their perception and awareness of new Top-Level Domains (TLDs). Sedo does not give out any details on how these people were selected.

Data showed that China is much more advanced than the other 3 countries when it comes to awareness of new top-level domains (TLDs), and has a much more positive outlook for their adoption and success.

Here is what I found interesting in this report: Continue reading

Logics.com Sells For $50,000 USD At Sedo

Sedo just announced that it sold the domain name Logics.com for $50,000 USD.

The buyer is a software company named intellirose from Chicago. The domain Logics.com currently displays a couple of links to a cloud CRM solution.

The domain was sold by Advanced Logics Inc. from Florida. This is also a software company.

From what I see at archive.org they were using the domain as their company website and for email up until 2003 or 2004. Then they were only using the domain name for email.

GCA.com Sells For $90,000 USD At Sedo

Sedo just announced that it sold the domain name gca.com for $90,000 USD.

The buyer is not yet known as whois has not yet been updated and shows Sedo as the owner. The domain gca.com currently displays the default Network Solutions under construction/parking page.

The domain was sold by Glenhaven Capital Associates (formerly known as Gordon Campbell & Associates) from Toronto, Canada. As you can see even though they changed their name they kept the same acronym and still sold the domain gca.com and made $90k.

From what I see at archive.org they never used the domain to build a website. They only used it for email. Continue reading

Sedo Had Another 7-Figure Sale We Will Never Know

I am sure that this week Sedo had a 7-figure domain sale that was kept private. Usually Sedo has about a million worth of sales every week. Last week Sedo sold mm.com for $1.2m and made it to $2.3m worth of sales.

This week Sedo sold $2.4m worth of domains and the total number of domains is less than last week. Last week Sedo sold 614 domains while this week it was 564 domains. The highest selling domain name this week was Satoshi.com for $75,000. This and the rest of the public domain name sales can’t justify the total $2.4m sales. Continue reading
