Become part of a global success story
Sedo offers outstanding prospects for a career in the ever-expanding online market. From our offices in Cologne and Boston, our team of experts is working towards the future in both a digital and creative environment.
A good product needs a good brand name, and an internet address that is as easy as possible to remember. Finding an adequate name was an easy task in the early pioneer days of the World Wide Web
but now practically all of the quality names are already taken. Those looking for a name to concisely describe their product or business can face a long and arduous search – often without a satisfying result. One good alternative is to purchase a name which has already been registered.
This way of thinking was precisely the reason that Sedo GmbH was founded in 2001 – and since that time, has made a significant contribution to establishing the global "secondary domain market". Comparable to the real estate market, domains are the virtual "properties" of the internet. Our vision: To provide private individuals and companies with the domain they require to enable their success.
