Follow Domain Related Public Companies

You can learn quite a bit of information from public companies who must disclose just about every thing that could have an implication on the value of the company. Because of this, it’s a smart idea to follow the filings of various domain companies so you can read up on company filings, rather than rely on blogs and other news outlets who may or may not report on certain events/filings.

Some publicly traded companies that are required to make public filings that are related to the domain industry include the following (please let me know if I missed any company):

Google
Yahoo
Microsoft
Marchex
Top Level Domain Holdings
Tucows
Dark Blue Sea
Verisign
Banks.com

In order to follow these companies, I set up a stock portfolio in Yahoo specifically with domain industry related stocks. This allows me to see where they are trading as well as news reports and SEC (or other) filings. Don’t simply rely on others’ interpretations of news – and don’t get delayed news reports that fly under the radar (domain sales for example).

Follow these and other related companies and be more informed as a result.

  1. Web.com owns many domains – their brand RenovationExperts has many geo-contractor.com domains, they purchased contractors.org or contractor.org.

  2. they also have leads.com – which is one of the two public pay per lead companies – along with IAC and their citysearch.com, servicemagic.com, lendingtree.com, hotels.com, etc brands.

  3. “they also have leads.com – which is one of the two public pay per lead companies – along with IAC and their citysearch.com, servicemagic.com, lendingtree.com, hotels.com, etc brands.”

    Are you sure that Leads.com actually sells per lead? Last I talked to them they were just a PPC company that branded themselves as a lead generation company.

    I know it would seem apparant that leads.com sold leads, but I think that the truth of the matter is that they do not sell leads, they just sell PPC campaigns.

  4. Yes, my friend started the company and another friend runs their PPC campaigns. They sell a bundled package that includes leads, clicks, and inclusion in directories. That is why they operater They also bought Renex – which is a pure lead gen company. Leads.com also operates Contractors.org
