Kentwood.com Purchased for $40,000

KentwoodThe last time I wrote an article mentioning Peter Niederman, it was when his company acquired Denver.com in a seven figure deal. Peter's company made another acquisition this week, and while the deal isn't worth as much as the Denver.com deal, the acqusition is highly valuable to the company.

Peter's company, Kentwood Real Estate, purchased Kentwood.com from Scott Day's Digimedia for $40,000. The domain name is now forwarding to DenverRealEstate.com, the primary website for Kentwood. The deal was transacted without the assistance of an intermediary. "As an end user, this is well suited for my real estate company in Denver called Kentwood Real Estate. We will continue to operate our website under DenverRealEstate.com," Peter told me.

If you live in the Denver area, you've probably heard of Kentwood Real Estate. In 2012, Kentwood closed more than $1.7 Billion in real estate transactions in the state of Colorado. This year, the company is on track to surpass $2 billion in transactions. I am told that ¬†Kentwood controls the → Read More


Old.com: Tribute to Scott Day

If you've been involved with domain names for more than 5 minutes, you've likely heard of Scott Day and/or his company, DigiMedia. The company owns great domain names like FantasyFootball.com, Recipes.com, Dress.com, WebDesign.com, and many others.

DigiMedia also owns Old.com. As a special tribute to Scott on his 40th birthday, the DigiMedia team is forwarding  Old.com to Scott's 40th birthday tribute website, ScottIs40.com. Friends and colleagues are welcome to send Scott their birthday wishes on this special occasion.

This is similar to what the company did for its (older) President, Jay Chapman, who celebrated his 40th birthday back in November.

Happy Birthday, Scott! → Read More


Scott Day’s Digimedia Invests in Warren Royal’s Bobbleheads.com

The story of Bobbleheads.com 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 FantasyFootball.com, Dress.com, Shops.com, Decorations.com, and many other domain names.

I just received a press release from Warren announcing that the company that owns and operates Bobbleheads.com 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.

Bump.com – VC Funded Startup on DigiMedia Domain Name

DigimediaAnyone that's been around the domain industry for any length of time has almost certainly come across DigiMedia-owned domain names. You've probably also heard about Scott Day, the company's founder whose previous career before domain names was in the farming field (pun intended).

I read an article in Mashable about a new startup called Bump, operating on Bump.com (via Berkens' Facebook feed). Bump is a unique social networking startup that wants people to be able to connect using license plates as the primary vehicle (pun intended). It's a unique concept, and upon checking the Whois for Bump.com, I noticed that DigiMedia is the owner.

Although I don't have any specifics about this deal/venture, there was an article about Bump's funding, which mentioned DigiMedia. According to the article,

"Thrower's brand new association so distant has lifted $1 million in seed funding, from Digimedia, Tal Kerret (chairman of Oberon Media), Christophe Vandaele (chairman of Vandaele Holdings), Charlie Baker (partner with DLA Piper), Bill Hein → Read More
