Sedo announced this morning that is partnership with dotHIV, the future nonprofit registry behind the new .hiv generic top-level domain (gTLD) is based in Berlin.
Sedo is helping dotHIV by appraising and auctioning premium .hiv domains, supporting preregistrations for people and organizations wishing to reserve names before the official launch, and evaluating the entire .hiv namespace to ensure that important .hiv domain names reach the best end users.By offering its services at a significantly reduced cost, Sedo is helping dotHIV’s mission of contributing a majority of its revenue to projects and initiatives that fight HIV/AIDS.
More than 70% of the registry’s revenue – with an ultimate goal of at least 80%– will be distributed to relevant charities.
The remaining funds will be used to finance registry operations, manage donation distribution and raise awareness of the digital red ribbon as a means for the world to beat AIDS together.
“The dotHIV initiative is both an innovative and an impressive social project,” added Sedo’s CEO, Tobias Flaitz. “We are looking forward to putting our know-how and our expertise to good use to help our new partner in the worldwide fight against HIV and AIDS.”http://www.virtual-strategy.com/2012/11/28/sedo-inks-partnership-new-gtld-registry-support-hiv-domains#ixzz2DWL1W93o…
