SnapNames Launches .CO.UK and .CN Domain Drop-Catching Auctions

By December 16, 2013 Aftermarket No Comments
[news release] SnapNames®, a KeyDrive S. A. company and leading provider of domain name buyer and seller solutions for every stage of the domain name lifecycle, announced today that .CO.UK and .CN domain names are now available through their popular online marketplace. Bringing already registered .CO.UK and .CN domains to the global market further establishes SnapNames’ commitment to bringing businesses and brands the domains they need to reach end-users in a borderless internet based world.

As the world’s third and fourth most popular country code top-level domain (ccTLD) extensions, demand for .CO.UK and .CN is aptly reflected in top worldwide internet usage penetration rates and volumes. According to the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency, 80% (more than double the global rate) of UK households had internet connection in 2012 making them one of the most connected nations worldwide. China had the highest number of Internet users globally with over 560 million users (over 42% of China’s population) leaving further opportunity for continued explosive growth.

“With the addition of .CO.UK and .CN domains to the SnapNames marketplace, our technology continues to evolve and is now even better positioned to deliver domains most relevant to our clients and partners globally,” said Craig Snyder, CEO of Moniker and SnapNames. “We are committed to connecting our clients with the best available inventory on a global scale. Success enablement is a big part of our business strategy and having .CO.UK and .CN domains in our marketplace will promote economic growth for end-users within their respective regions.”
