Francois Carrillo has added a domain industry business directory to the left sidebar and top right tab of Domaining.com, a smart move considering all of the targeted traffic the site receives. The directory has categories for domain brokers, registrars, parking, tools, escrow companies, and a number of other categories related to domain investing.
I had previously noticed the directory when it first started and was fairly empty, but in the past few weeks, it has become heavily populated. The cost for a directory listing is $700 a year for the top section of each category and $300 a year for the lower section of each category. It appears that all categories have at least two listings, and some several far more than the minimum.
I think it’s a smart move by Francois as it will certainly generate additional revenue for his company, and it will also keep people on the Domaining.com website for longer, adding value to the other advertisers. Of course, it’s also beneficial to visitors looking to find a domain related company.
