Undeveloped, a domain name sales platform and marketplace, announced it was undergoing a rebranding. The company will now be known as DAN.com, which stands for Domain Automation Network.

I was checking out a domain name listed for sale via DomainMarket.com, the domain name marketplace owned and operated by industry veteran Mike Mann.
