Sedo’s latest partnership is with Chinese registrar 66.cn. Customers searching for domains at 66.cn’s site will see premium domain listings available for purchase at Sedo, and be redirected to the Sedo website via a “for sale” link to complete the purchase. 66.cn seems to be focusing on .cn domains so I am not sure what the impact on other TLDs listed at Sedo will be.
This is the complete press release:
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., – January 14, 2013 – Sedo, the world’s largest domain marketplace and monetization provider, today announced a new partnership with Chinese registrar 66.cn.
