Heary congratulations to the folks at NameMedia, who according to Reuters and a post on DomainNameNews.com filed with US regulators to raise up to $172.5 million in an IPO. The company plans to list its shares on the Nasdaq market under the highly appropriate ticker symbol “NAME.”
This comes on the heels of great growth in the domain space. Some of NameMedia’s better known properties include Afternic, BuyDomains, and Smart Name among others. The company also recently announced strategic partnerships with leading companies such as Network Solutions and Register.com.
