Sedos Director of International Operations takes a step down

Effective August 1, 2008, Bentley will transition out of his operational role at Sedo, but will remain close to the company in a non-operative role as Strategic Advisor.

“Together with Sedo’s founders, Matt has played an important role in helping Sedo become the recognized, global domain marketplace leader it is today,” said Tim Schumacher, CEO and co-founder of Sedo. “Matt will no doubt continue to be a tremendous asset to Sedo in his new advisory role. We thank him for his years of dedication and wish him success in his future endeavors.”

Bentley joined Sedo in 2002 as Director of International Operations, and one of the first dozen employees at the company.

He played a central role in helping to expand Sedo’s global footprint outside of Germany, in particular by launching (together with Sedo Co-founder and President Ulrich Essmann) Sedo’s U.S. subsidiary company Sedo.com, LLC in 2004. Bentley served as CEO of Sedo.com for two years before returning to Germany to assume his current role.

Bentley also played a key role in shaping Sedo’s successful domain parking product, forging one of the industry’s first parking partnerships with Google, and managing the launch of Sedo’s premium brand for domain professionals, SedoPro.

Sedo Fight Domain Fraud with Ethoca

Ethoca has seen firsthand how the effects of e-commerce fraud extend well beyond the loss of a physical product or dollar amount,” said Andre Edelbrock, CEO, Ethoca. “We’re pleased that the Global Fraud-Fighting Community is broadening to protect digital distribution markets and encompass the experiences of Sedo’s global consumer base. We hope Sedo’s leadership in digital property will propel other forward-looking businesses in this area to join the fight.”

“Domain names have become one of the most key components to businesses and their branding,” said Ulrich Essmann, president, USA division of Sedo. “Fraudulent activity in this realm not only harms marketplace members but it piles on added costs in credit card chargebacks and also damages the future viability of a domain. All of these aspects affect the community at large — so why not work with a united community to keep these losses at bay? Ethoca is making it a reality.”

Domain pulse would also like to thank Semra Yilmaz the PR manager at sedo for the weekly sales

Dragon’s Den Domain disputes

Contestants on TV’s Dragon’s Den may face a tough grilling from Duncan Bannatyne et al, but there’s one important question that has never been asked on the programme.
Domain name company Sedo has claimed that while the Dragons focus on issues such as financials and product patents, they don’t ever think about domain names.

“I have never once heard the judges ask a contestant whether they have registered the best internet domain names to promote or sell their products,” said Nora Nanayakkara, director of business development at Sedo.
“In 2008, it’s a shame that the public face of the UK entrepreneur movement doesn’t seem to realise that how an organisation presents itself on the web can make or break a business – and the right domain name is a big part of that,” Nanayakkara continued.

PushToAuction.com selling Sedo Domains

Getting a domain listed in Sedo’s domain auction can be a big win for domain owners, especially if their domains are generic.

There are two ways to get a domain listed in Sedo’s auction. One is to submit it to an account manager or to the monthly Great Domains auction. You have to have good domains with low reserves to get accepted. Another is to receive an offer on your domain and send it to an auction with the offer as the reserve price. But waiting around for an offer is never a good sales strategy.

Enter PushToAuction.com, which lets domain owners promote domains listed at Sedo that they agree to send to auction if someone makes a $60 offer on it. Users can look for domains that look reasonably priced at $60 or above and submit a bid at Sedo. The bidder makes a legitimate offer on the domain and the seller agrees to send the domain to auction after receiving the offer.

Domain name Whirlwind

Last week’s decision to allow companies to buy their own top-level domains (TLDs) has led to press forecasts of a ‘land-grab’ similar to that of the late 1990s. Nora Nanayakkara, director of business development at domain marketplace SEDO, believes this prospect may be exaggerated.

‘You need substantial means, about $500,000 [£250,000] to purchase your own TLD,’ says Nanayakkara. Businesses need to step back, evaluate the situation, and decide what benefit they can really draw from this.

‘Otherwise the only people to make money out of this will be [domain registrar] ICANN and intellectual property lawyers.’

Nanayakkara claims that previous TLDs such as .pro and .aero have gained limited popularity as consumers stick to what they know, while domains ending in .co.uk or .com are still affordable, attracting average prices of around $3,000 and $2,500 respectively.
