Sedo vs GoDaddy: The ICANN game
GoDaddy – the world’s largest registrar by volume of both registrations and silicone-enhanced model busts – has revealed its application for .GoDaddy.
Meanwhile, Sedo stayed put and did not apply for .Sedo, despite having both the financial and personnel resources to do so.
But was the Cologne company with offices in London and Boston being prudent – a characteristic of Germans?
“We don’t have time to waste, our fast-deployed model can be replicated without the issues that new gTLDs will cause,” said Fritz Homm, database designer for Sedo Colongne.
“In picoseconds we retrieve 1.2 billion records related to domains, databases, clicks, PPC and 41% of it all is instant buys. Why screw up the model, hmm?” asked Homm while still coding.
The efficiency of the Sedo process and its mobility is no rival to GoDaddy, however, who despite their usual tits-and-ass advertising model have grabbed the attention and business of millions of users worldwide.
“The addition of .GoDaddy will further solidify the image of Bob Parsons’ caricature logo, and although we did not manage to apply for .Sucks we will ensure the registration of GoDaddy.Sucks as a defensive registration,” said GoDaddy model “slash” spokesperson, Leela Pause.
While Sedo works quietly in the sidelines, GoDaddy’s flamboyant launch will gain more firecrackers during the annual July 4th festival of domainers.
