DAN.com Shares Some Sales & Traffic Stats

4

I missed this earlier this week, but DAN.com founder Reza Sardeha shared some interesting cumulative stats that I found interesting. Reza’s posts were made deep within a long NamePros thread called “DAN.COM Domain Marketplace (Official Thread).” The statistics were brought to my attention this morning in a tweet from domain investor Nikul Sanghvi:

Web.com posted a job opportunity that might be of interest to a job seeker from within the domain industry. Web.com is looking to hire an Aftermarket Channel Manager, and I presume the person will be focused on the company’s NameJet and SnapNames platforms. The job opening was posted yesterday afternoon on LinkedIn.

Here’s the job description:

I want to share an email I received from Escrow.com late last week. I have a payment plan deal in effect at Escrow.com, and the email was to notify the buyer and me about a banking change that will impact payments. Here’s an excerpt from the email with the key information:

Web.com posted a job opportunity I want to share with readers. The Jacksonville, Florida-based company is looking to hire a Strategic Aftermarket Sales Executive. Based on the job description, it looks like the hire will work on the company’s SnapNames and NameJet lines of business. The job was posted one week ago on LinkedIn, and it looks like there are fewer than 25 applicants so far.

Here’s the job summary extracted from the LinkedIn job listing:

Job Opening: Senior Product Manager at Amazon Registry Services

0

I saw a job opportunity on LinkedIn that might appeal to someone with experience in the business of domain names. Amazon Registry Services, Inc. (ARSI) is hiring a Sr. Program Manager. ARSI is the Amazon team that manages the domain name extensions operated by Amazon, which currently includes .Bot and will almost certainly include .Amazon. The job will be based out of Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle, Washington.

Here is a copy of the description for the Sr. Program Manager job at Amazon Registry Services:

Michael Berkens Shares Insight About Investing in New gTLDs

41

Alvin Brown shared a full recap of his experience at the Ashville Domain Investor meetup organized by Rick Schwartz. It’s a nice summary of the event, and it will serve as an endorsement of the event should Rick decide to host again next year. Within his article, Alvin posted a video featuring a talk by Michael Berkens, who shared his thoughts, experiences, and insight regarding new gTLD domain names and investing in that asset class.

I am glad Alvin took the video, and I hope he doesn’t mind my sharing it below. I think it deserves to be highlighted on its own.
