Domain name giant Sedo and parking company RevenueDirect announced today that Sedo has taken over the smaller parking company. The two platforms will continue operating separately for the time being, but I expect that eventually we will see a merger of the back-ends, with Sedo’s landing pages predominating. It doesn’t make sense economically for them to operate two different back-ends. Below is a Q&A that RevenueDirect provided to its customers:
Q: Will I need to make any changes to my domains?
A: At this time you will not need to make changes to how your domains are parked or optimized through RevenueDirect (including name server or other traffic forwarding settings.) You will be notified if future changes are required.
Q: How will I be paid?
A: RevenueDirect will continue to issue your monthly payments until otherwise communicated. Your payment cycle and method will not change at this time.
Q: Will I earn more/less?
A: Your earnings are expected to remain consistent, or even improve as we integrate RevenueDirect into Sedo’s platforms.
Q: What will happen to my RevenueDirect account if I already have a Sedo account?
A: Initially, your RevenueDirect account will continue to function independently from Sedo. Eventually, Sedo’s staff will be available to assist you directly with any transition-related questions or instructions.
Q: Who do I contact for support?
A: All RevenueDirect clients will continue to receive support from RevenueDirect account managers, while also being given access to Sedo’s award-winning customer service network at Sedo.
