According to a press release I just received it appears Pool.com now has a competitor in the ICANN Digital Archery batching service for new gTLD applicants.
“Digital Archery Experts (DAE) is pleased to release its digital archery service designed to secure new gTLD applicants a first batch position in the ICANN secondary time stamp competition.”
The fee is $20,000 which has to be paid upfront but will be “retained ONLY if we succeed in qualifying a client’s string for the batch one”
“DAE is an affiliated company with .CLUB DOMAINS, LLC one of the new gTLD applicants.”
“Qualifying for batch one is critical for our business as it will be for other gTLD applicants,” states Colin Campbell, CEO for .CLUB and business partner with DAE.
“We are making the same advanced technical solution that .Club will be using available to a select group of additional gTLD’s,” Campbell explained.”
“Digital Archery Experts is only accepting a limited number of clients to ensure the solution’s advantage is not compromised by allowing hundreds of other gTLD applicants to use the advanced technology solution.”
“Our mission is to qualify DAE clients for batch one,” says business partner, Peter LaMantia. “We are taking clients on a first come/first served basis with a simple offer; we either succeed in qualifying client strings in the first batch or they do not pay.”
“The DAE solution is designed to strike within milliseconds of the target and was developed by some of the most skilled networking and software minds in the world. “We have been preparing to execute a digital archery solution as a contingency for .CLUB for some time and now that it is a reality, with our systems in place, we know we can hit the bullseye,” says former Hostopia.com CTO and DAE Partner, Dirk Bhagat.”
“The final details of the secondary time stamp solution will be released to clients in the coming days as ICANN announces details. New gTLD applicants interested in using the DAE solution are invited to visit www.digitalarcheryexperts.com and contact us to secure their batch one position.”
