50 domains sold for US$360,400 at Domainvermarkter Forum

by NewsDesk Editor in Categories: Domain Sales, Events, News

The giant online merchandiser of domain names, Sedo, has sold out over 50 domain names at its recent Live Auction at the Domainvermarkter (= Domain Sales/Marketing in German) Forum in Hamburg, Germany. The total amount from the bid has been reported to have crossed over $360,400 (USD).

The absorbing three-hour session of bidding was attended by 120 noted businesspersons, out of whom 48 were successfully placed. Amongst all, the most significant of the sales included, weiber.de (“women” in German) for $26,000, hawaii.de for $30000, ärzte.de (“doctors” in German) for an exorbitant $77,000, and also, reisebüro.de and reise-büro.de (“travel agencies” in German) for another soaring $70,000. Sedo also arranged special planning for the clients who could not make it to the auction, by running a live chat with them concurrently with the show.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., Sedo constitutes the world’s largest database for domain names. One of the leading online marketplaces for purchasing and selling of domain names and websites, the company belongs mainly to AdLINK Group (ISIN DE0005490155 / German WKN: 549015), a part of the German United Internet AG (ISIN DE0005089031/ WKN 508903). Along with the marketing and sales, Sedo also trades regional versions of its site for the UK (Sedo.co.uk), France (Sedo.fr), Germany (Sedo.de), and Spain (Sedo.es).

“Weiber” means “Women” / “Chicks” in German :-) “Skirts” would be “Röcke”

True enough – I must have missed that when I was double-checking the post. After all I am German, I just live in Canada :-)

Who bid reisebüro.de up to 70k? We met the reserve at 50k but that was our limit we had placed on this name and I think we were only bidding against Alexander at that point. I thought he got it for 51k after we quit bidding at 50k.

Was a fun auction though!

Wait until mainstream domainers wake up to the fact that IDN’s get traffic, and they can generally be bought at a discount compared to ASCII.
