Yesterday (1/16/2015) was the first time I even heard that Domaining.com was even for sale and it was also the first time I heard it had sold, with Monday being the day the new owners will be officially announced… Well, part of the fun is guessing who the new buyers are prior, so here is my guess!
TurnCommerce Inc. aka the Reberry Brothers, aka HugeDomains, aka NameBright.com, aka DropCatch.com etc.
They already own NameBee.com, which is basically the same thing as Domaining.com (aggregates blog feeds). They also own CapitalStartup.com another aggregator site. TurnCommerce is big into domaining and coming out with more “domaining” type products / services according to its website.
DropCatch.com has been launched already and is a big hit!
Expire.com is listed as “Coming Soon”
NameBright.com the registrar was opened to the public.
HugeDomains.com is HUGE!
PremiumDomains.com is listed as “Coming Soon”
Speaking of PremiumDomains.com? Who use to own that domain name? Francois Carrillo! The same “current” owner of Domaining.com. This proves they have already worked together and made the successful transaction of that domain (and maybe more), so why not Domaining.com and the site. TurnCommerce not only is a BIG TIME domain buyer, drop catcher etc, they are heavily into Domaining!
Francois even has some domains registered with TurnCommerce.
Reberry brothers LOVE domain names in general and when you love, own and breath domain names, domaining is what you do!
TurnCommerce has done very well (they appear to have the $ to buy Domaining.com) considering that HugeDomains.com owns over 1 Million + domain names. The brothers own a lot of nice generic domain names in general as well… and it wouldn’t hurt promoting many of its services like DropCatch.com, NameBright.com, PremiumDomains.com, HugeDomains.com, Expire.com and more on Domaining.com!
So, my guess as to who the new owners of Domaining.com will be? TurnCommerce, Inc. , mainly for the reasons stated above. They are domain investors, developers and more!
I could be wrong and it wouldn’t be the first time, but that is my guess and I see it as a good fit for TurnCommerce. Will Domaining.com stay the way it is now? Hard to say… Monday we will find out officially who the buyer/buyers are, but what do you think of my guess?
