The largest domain name marketplace and monetization provider, Sedo, today announced a partnership with Go Daddy, the world’s largest provider of Web hosting, domain name registrations and new SSL Certificates. Already a prime location for businesses and individuals looking for a domain name, this new partnership enables registrar Go Daddy to expand its offering and provide end users with access to more premium domains than ever before. When a visitor searches for a domain or keyword at GoDaddy.com, matching names from Sedo’s marketplace will now also be displayed for potential buyers to purchase.
“Go Daddy wants to help small businesses grow larger, and finding the right domain name is the place to start,” said Paul Nicks, Go Daddy’s Director of Product Development for the Aftermarket. “Giving customers access to many premium domain names, including Sedo’s Buy Now domain names, Go Daddy can ensure our customers get the best domain name for their website or business.”
Go Daddy, the world’s largest registrar, is the latest partner to join Sedo’s Multi-Listing Service, SedoMLS. Through this partnership, Go Daddy can now offer its customers the option to purchase domain names that are already “taken” as easily as they would register a domain for the first time. The domain market leader, Sedo currently has 15 million domains for sale in its marketplace. SedoMLS allows any domains listed at a “Buy Now” price to be displayed within Go Daddy’s search results, reaching the largest potential audience of domain buyers.
“As one of the most popular places worldwide for small business owners, entrepreneurs, or individuals looking for the right domain name, we are thrilled to be partnering with Go Daddy,” said Sedo’s CEO, Tim Schumacher. “Through our SedoMLS partnership, we can offer millions of domain buyers the widest choice of domain names, which will help them make the right decision for their business, and purchase the names they need to find success online.”
