TechCrunch.com published a great story about the money floating around in the domain industry entitled “”The silent evolution of domain names””.
People in the domain space are mentioned include Rob Grant as the father of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Ham, and Thunayan K. AL-Ghanim.
The story covers Godaddy’s purchase of our portfolio saying they spend over $100 million in domains.
The story quotes DomainNameWire.com by name; uses TheDomains.com as links for some of it’s facts.
The story goes on to chat about new gTLD’s in a very positive light especially .Brand new gtld’s.
The two misses in the story is that they are using only the stats from the Verisign 1st Q report for new gTLD’s that showed 16 million registrations apparently not knowing there are current stats showing over 26.5 million registrations and while the story concludes; “If only McDonald’s would apply for .bigmac”
Well McDonalds did not apply for .bigmac but they did apply for .Mcdonalds and .MCD.
