Europe’s Leading Domain Brokerage Comes to the UK Thursday 3 May 2001 PDF Print COLOGNE, GERMANY - SEDO, Europe's leading broker for Internet domain names and other Web properties, has now come to the United Kingdom. Following the recent sealing of the strategic partnership between Sedo GmbH and 1&1 Internet AG, a subsidiary of the German Internet giant United Internet AG, several new services have been added to complement SEDO's overall product offering. At Sedo.co.uk, users curious to know the value of their domain names or web sites, can now get them appraised. Also with the new escrow service, both buyers and sellers can now rest assured that their interests are being well taken care of, and that a transaction can only take place when both parties have fulfilled their obligations. Said Tim Schumacher (24), CEO of the Cologne-based firm, "SEDO is going to become the central hotspot for all domain name trading activity in Europe. With over 1.7 million entries in our database, we are already the undisputed market leader at the moment. We have come a long way to become the market leader in Europe, but the new structure we have set in place will now pave the way for our aggressive market expansion into other parts of Europe, which will take place in the months to come." Indeed the growth of the firm was boosted by a very active market for .de domain names, which happens to be the world's second most popular Top Level Domain after the .com. SEDO has also been pursuing a very aggressive acquisition strategy. Domain-agent.de, for example, previously SEDO's archrival in the German market, has now been completely integrated with SEDO. It's founder, Ulrich Essmann (30), is now a partner and product manager. About SEDO SEDO is the European market leader of domain brokerages. The German pioneer of the domain brokerage industry offers not only the world's largest Search Engine for Domain Offers (after which it was named), consisting of more than 1.7 million entries from all over the world, but also a host of other domain-related services ranging from domain appraisals to escrow services. SEDO's main investor is 1&1 Internet Ltd, a web hosting and domain registration company based in Uxbridge, London and the UK arm of 1&1 Internet AG based in Montabaur, Germany (a subsidiary of the United Internet Group).
