Scott Day’s Digimedia Invests in Warren Royal’s

The story of is one of my favorite in the domain industry, and I have much respect for its founder Warren Royal, who built his company after purchasing the domain name at auction. Similarly, I have tremendous respect for Scott Day and Jay Champman, whose Digimedia has a fantastic portfolio of generic domain names, including,,,, and many other domain names.

I just received a press release from Warren announcing that the company that owns and operates has received an equity investment from Digimedia.

As the company continues to grow, develop new products, and has the need for holiday and other inventory, it becomes necessary to fuel this growth with significant capital. Digimedia knows domain name assets and can provide the capital to ensure growth without supply chain hiccups.

It’s a smart move for both parties, and knowing the principals behind both companies, I think it’s a very good match.

  1. Very interested to know the details of this. I would hate to have someone else take a stake in one of my sites – though if he needs the cash he needs the cash. I’d rather take a loan, but Digimedia probably brings some nice expertise along with them….
