After resigning from his vice president’s role at Tucows to pursue his passion for domain name strategy, respected domain name expert Bill Sweetman has unveiled Name Ninja (www.nameninja.com), a boutique domain name consulting firm that officially launches today.
“With the massive expansion of the Internet namespace due to the upcoming rollout of hundreds of new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs), the global demand for expert domain name advice and strategy is going to explode,” predicts Bill Sweetman, Name Ninja’s President and Lead Ninja.
“Featuring the tagline “lethal domain name consulting,” Sweetman’s new firm helps companies acquire, manage, protect, and profit from their domain names.”
“Name Ninja offers a suite of domain name consulting services to three types of clients: startups, entrepreneurs and marketers; individual and corporate domain name owners; and new gTLD registries and operators.”
“The Toronto-based firm will focus on domain name acquisition (buyer broker), domain name rescue, domain name protection, corporate domain name strategy, and domain name portfolio management. ”
“Name Ninja will also assist new gTLD registries and operators with distribution, marketing, and secondary market services.”
“I am looking forward to collaborating with my global network of domain industry colleagues and partners to service the domain name needs of Name Ninja’s clients,” noted Sweetman, adding, “I hope to see many of you at next week’s T.R.A.F.F.I.C. domain name conference in Las Vegas.”
“Name Ninja is the newest brainchild of domain name strategist Bill Sweetman, a successful and respected domain name industry business leader with extensive experience in the domain aftermarket (or secondary market) of premium domain names, including domain pricing, distribution, and sales. ”
“Bill has provided strategic domain name advice to major companies around the world for nearly 20 years. ”
“Prior to launching Name Ninja, Bill spent over five years running the Domain Portfolio business at Tucows, the largest wholesale domain registrar in the world. During his time there, Bill tripled the Domain Portfolio business to over $10M in annual revenue, increased sales volume 800%, launched the successful YummyNames service, and managed the sale of over $20M of premium domain names. A self-confessed domain name fanatic, Bill registered his very first domain in 1994 (which he later sold for five figures) and has been perfecting his “Domain Karate” moves ever since.
