Sedo Web Site Redesign Goes Live

Sedo web site redesign launches today.

At the SedoPro Partner Forum in Key West this year, the company said it was working on a redesign of its site. The site had become outdated and needed a refresh.

The new design went live this morning:

The first thing you’ll notice is a much smaller home page that fits it the typical browser without scrolling down. To achieve this, Sedo has removed much of the real estate for current domain listings. It has replaced these with rotating boxes for featured domains, top domains, and auctions. The recent sales section has been removed from the home page, but you can find it on the Market Activity page. Also removed from the home page is a login box; you’ll now need to click on a link in order to login.

Once you get past the home page, you won’t see much of a difference if you aren’t logged in. But when you do log in, you’ll be greeted by a “domain management portal” which quickly shows you your activity level, parking earnings, and total sales for the past month and year-to-date.

The domain parking controls are largely unchanged, and users should be familiar with most aspects of the user interface when logged in to their account.

Overall my first impression is positive, although I’m sure a few minor annoyances will pop up. For example, it would certainly be nice for the login box to reappear on the home page.
