Sedo losing steam with dot com sales?

Quote:
In this month′s newsletter we decided to focus on the rise of Country Code Top-Level Domains ("ccTLDs") like .ca (Canada), .co.uk (UK) and .cn (China). In fact, in many parts of the world ccTLDs are more popular than .com domains, and are considered the standard in their respective countries. For domain investors, ccTLDs can serve as a diversification against volatile .com markets. They also tend to be less subject to the constant and unjustified price increases that we often see with .com domains.

Re: Sedo losing steam with dot com sales?

It is Sedo and it is .nu however 20% of the names are IDN, that's not bad exposure.


http://sedo.com/search/searchresult....artnerid=37961

And- the majority of my ascii sales come via Sedo , no reason to think that if they finally get their IDN act together, particularly with asians, no reason to think why they can not be as successful with IDN sales.

Stranger things have happened, but it is unusual for companies that go to such lengths to piss off their potential Clients to ultimately be successful, however, I guess Microsoft managed it!

Re: Sedo losing steam with dot com sales?

The dot com is losing sales from end users due to the weakening western economies, and especially so when prices are high. It won't be long before the LLL market also gets hit after the speculators realize that end users are now not going to pay mid-$xx,xxx for LLL.

As for idns, the end users aren't really in yet in the first place.

No, dot com sales are slowing down due to the refusal of sellers to adapt to the economies of the markets which they directly target. Many domain sellers seem to live in an economy of their own, which has little or nothing to do with real life... You can not raise the prices of your goods 10 orders of magnitude faster than inflation, for several years in a row, and still expect them to sell. That just wastes everbody's time, because they are listed for sale but they are not really "for sale". I suspect that's what Sedo newsletter is talking about.
