    Hi All,

    Well, I just got the numbers back from a weekend of registrations, and they are very strong. People seem to have really taken to the .eu, and we are showing a huge amount in our database alone. You can see our .eu counter on our homepage:

    www.sedo.co.uk

    In addition, if you are interested in purchasing some .eu's, or just seeing what we've got so far, check out our sales section:

    http://www.sedo.co.uk/search/searchresult.php4?tracked=&partnerid=&language=e&cc=eu

    Finally, for some general info on the .eu and Sedo, have a look at the following link:

    http://www.sedo.co.uk/faq/index.php...=artikel&cat=24&id=190&artlang=en&language=en

    We're looking forward to marketing and parking your .eu domains for you and making sure you're getting the most from them!

    Let us know if you have any questions!

    Best Regards,

    Jakob

    Looks like us Brits got carried away...

    'Great Britain (176 668 domain names), Germany (138 085 domain names), The Netherlands (100 445 domain names)'.

    Do you think they will stop trying to brand us a cybersquatters now... :rolleyes: lol

    Hi!

    I've just spoken with our brokerage team and, while no sales have been recorded yet, numerous services have been ordered for .eu domains. As we are just a few days in, I don't expect we'll close a huge number of sales this week...

    Hi,

    LOL, who's a cybersquatter??

    Nice work on the reg's guys. Can I get some feedback on who has registered .eu's and some examples if possible? Very interesting that the UK leads the pack in the initial 4 hours of availability.

    Thanks in advance!

    Jakob

    Certainly not me.... It was some guy I was reading about... lol

    On another note, thought it might help all to ask this public than private...

    How are appraisals going to be carried out for .eu ?

    I ask this as many appear to be seeking such...

    Key thing is, it's very early days... Soooooooo...

    How do things differ...

    Thanks...

    Well, this is certainly something that we've thought a lot about. We've been compiling data the past several months about pre-registrations and where they've been coming from. We've crunched a lot of numbers, such as pre-registrations vs. population, languages that have been pre-registered vs. population of those who speak that language, etc etc. We have a lot of interesting values. We've cross referenced this with the actual numbers of registrations we've seen in the last week. This gives us a rough idea of demand by country and by language spoken, and we use these figures to aid us in determining a value of a .eu domain. We of course also use the same criteria we use on all our appraisals. But for now, we actually do a little bit more legwork when appraising .eu domains. So if you want to order an appraisal for your .eu domain, now's the best time!

    It's all about sales at the end of the day and it would be interesting to see hard figures about the number of .eu domain names which have been sold through Sedo.

    We have recorded a lot of sales already. Of course, none of these can be discussed now as none of the domains have yet to be transferred. Hopefully, EURid will allow transfers soon, and we can release some sales figures. They range from xxx-xxx,xxx EUR at this point.
