fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

UPDATE: Final Price $46,001 USD

Another IDN listing that is getting a lot of attention on SEDO.

http://www.sedo.com/auction/auction_...uction_id=5400

The real ascii version of fix.com is listed on sedo for 2,500,000 $US.


Normally, I wouldnt note this, but the seller registered the name 4 days ago, obviously with the intent to sell immediately.

Ha ha, looks like the "fix" is in.

That one is hard to see with the letter f hiding the I's diacritic nicely.

Re: fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

There are a bunch up there, all with similar set-ups (like russìan, wìne, vìsa, etc.)

I figured it would be all the same person, but it looks like the whois is different on each of those.

Is there any way we can bring the fact that these are worthless scam domains to light? I think it gives a black eye to the IDN industry and really hurts us all in the long run...

I agree with you 100% here. Regular domainers will see things like this and get the impression that IDNs are used mostly for this kind of thing.

Sedo really need to get their act together with these, but I guess at the end of the day, they want as much commission from sales as they can.

If anybody is damaging the industry it is Sedo. They can transact fraudulent phishing domains but will not accommodate the languages of some of the biggest Internet countries on Earth. Why are they so intrasigent. Well when they do get their act together and start talking the same language as the rest of us, then should not be surprised if they have difficulty getting anyone to listen!

Re: fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

I am thinking of posting a topic @ NP and DP and asking mods to make it a sticky.... but it would be nice if one of our senior members wrote something up real quick using live examples of IDNs etc.

Re: fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

I hate sedo so much that I built my own domain auction site. I will mod the site and code to whatever my members need and want! http://www.idnbay.com is the new future of idn domain sales! Down with sedo.

All SEDO did during the last tirade is put a one line text sentence saying "This is a Multilingual Domain Name"

They'll do anything to make their cut

Brilliant. Those should evoke plenty of discussion!

I am assuming that those that can afford to pour over $30K down the toilet, must at least think they know what they are doing!

Re: fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

It'll be interesting to see what happens to this.

I cant see overpriced and misunderstood IDNs selling so freely like this for too long. Some-how, there will have to be education by the marketplaces taking place.

Re: fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

Several topics on namepros, idnforums and dnforum, several emails from different
people, several cancelled sales, I guess the next thing is a lawsuit.

Yes, it may take something like this to get some of the stupid buggers to take any notice!

Re: fìx.com is on auction @ Sedo (IDN)

To sell these mix script IDN is a sad reflection on SEDO. The seller hasn't even hidden the who.is, so he may be as unknowledgable as the buyer. He did however use a PO Box, and no email.

I wrote to Ron Jackson at DNJournal to see if he will expose this practice and maybe put some "editorial" pressure on SEDO that will get them to stop allowing these type of sales.
It is really going to give IDN sales a black eye, and make potential buyers suspicious. Even EBAY has cleaned up their act it seems.
Anyone else wishing to write, Ron's email is: editor@dnjournal.com

EMAIL TO RON WITH LINK TO THIS THREAD.
Ron, the IDN community is appauled at this type sale going on time and time again.
Maybe you can write an article bringing to light that SEDO continues to allow these sales.
They have also been "informed" that these mixed scripts are pretty much 100% worthless.
Regards, BW
