CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Sedo, the leading online marketplace for the buying and selling of domain names, has today announced a new partnership with Domain Capital to offer domain investors finance plans on high-value domain purchases.

"Our partnership with Domain Capital enables Sedo to bring more value to domain investors and extends our track record of delivering innovative services to the market."

Sedo's financing program is currently designed for domain name purchases of $10,000 or more. Through the first five months of 2006, Sedo brokered 211 such transactions.
