Customers can search for results of domain names that are available to register and that are for sale on Sedo's secondary market.
Sedo, an online marketplace for the buying and selling of domain names, yesterday announced a strategic partnership with DomainsBot, the domain semantic search engine.
Under this new partnership, a visitor searching for a domain name on a registrar or webhosting company's site that is integrated with the DomainsBot suggestion tool can now find search results of quality, related domain names that are available to register, as well as domain names that are for sale on Sedo's secondary market.
When a webhost company or registrar integrates and displays the Sedo portion of the domain suggestion tool to its users, Sedo will pay the costs that would normally have to be paid to Domainsbot for the queries executed and will also pay the service provider commissions of any transactions that come through Sedo, the release claimed.
"This partnership provides an enormous amount of value to service providers by increasing the domain registration rate while adding a new revenue stream without additional costs. The tool itself adds tremendous value to the customer experience by making it increasingly easy for people to find a domain name that fits their needs", said Mark Klein, Sedo's Director of Business Development.
"Having Sedo sponsor our name suggestion is a terrific win-win for the entire market. This gives registrars the opportunity to increase their sales and profit from the exponentially growing secondary market at no cost, and registrants the advantage to find the most relevant domains available and for sale in one place", said Emiliano Pasqualetti, DomainsBot's Chief Operating Officer.
