Got a question... Why does 123 reg not allow backordering of some domain names? Thanks for any answer or 2. 2nd question I got is.. which ispopular in industry for listing premium domains only, Today when I checked the 123 reg website I was feeling like I was visiting Sedo. Every thing is from Sedo except interface. When you search something it has same results as Sedo.

Sorry to say but is no more. I guess after a year a two they will forward HostGator to featured listing of Sedo.. is one of the well known brand is the industry, integrating completely with Sedo is killing it's value. They should have left it an independent company as Google did with by not mixing YouTube with Google Videos though they are promoting by similar Sedo should promote GreatDomains in instead of making a with just different interface..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably can answer it..

I think sedo will give it a well needed boost, my only concern is with the extra workload it might make it even harder to get an email reply from sedo..

Their communications more often than not - SUCK !.

It's good to see Sedo helping them, but hopefully it won't take away from their support and such...

I have no problem with support whatsoever, you just need to pick up the phone if you want an immediate response, if there is something strongly on your mind then give that person a call..

Heck, I'm not super proficient in the English language when it comes to verbally expressing myself, but I try to do my best and things will get worked out either way..

I do get my message across and that's what counts..

The brand is stronger then ever with the exposure they are enjoying now and with that said the exposure to the overall Sedo marketplace..

It's all good man!..

Agreed. They used to be respected but it was a long time ago..

They killed their credibility with .cc & .tv domains..

I believe Sedo was interested in the portfolio and not the brand...

Folks - Keep up with the news.





They have owned it for a while now , And as many have already stated - It was pretty much a joke to many people for the past few years until it was taken over...

GreatDomains only had like 1 sale on the DNJournal top charts and it was only for like $17k. I'm sure they handle a few private sales, but generally speaking they were pretty much dead. I'm not a big fan of Sedo though in general and this just seemed like a lame effort to match the goings-on over at Afternic. We'll see though, maybe it'll turn into something good. I just would have rather seen Sedo improving their current services before taking on more...

Actually, GreatDomains killed the brand. With zero marketing and almost zero online presence. Not to mention they passed on truly top names while at times listing near junk names...

Comment #8

VeriSign killed GreatDomains ... before that - ie. late 90s, they were the place people sought to be listed at with good service ... but again, once VeriSign acquired them, it was downhill fast - as in practically overnight....

In a nutshell, others here are spot on about GreatDomains brand being dead for quite awhile ... most anything Sedo does with it will be an improvement..
