Here's the The Lowdown from DN Journal,
updated daily
to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry. 

The Lowdown is compiled by DN Journal Editor & Publisher Ron Jackson.

Skip Hoagland Adds Another .Com GeoDomain to His World Class Collection and New .CA Marketplace Opens for Business

Skip Hoagland of Domains New Media LLC has joined with Linda and Corky Gifford of Island Communications LLC to purchase PanamaCityBeach.com from Charles Mason for an undisclosed price. Domains New Media and Island Communications acquired the domain

name, the website and its customer base in the transaction. Hoagland, who was profiled in our July 2008 Cover Story, already owns some of the world's top developed geodomains including Atlanta.com, MyrtleBeach.com and BuenosAires.com,  to name just a few. 

Regarding PanamaCityBeach.com, a site that represents the top resort town in Florida's panhandle, Hoagland said "We are starting with an excellent platform -  the current site has a great layout, is easy to navigate and even works on the iPhone. It will be further improved as we switch over to the new improved GeoDomain platforms that we are developing."

 

Seller Charles Mason, who will continue to work with the new owners, said "Skip and his partners and team members really understand the value of a geodomain and have the funding to take PanamaCityBeach.com to new levels. Their proven network of domain names can reach tourists that others only dream about. Skip's help, dedication, fairness and professionalism is and has been on the highest level and was unsurpassed by anyone or other proposals we received."

Mason added, "Skip and I had been in discussion for many months and the most important concern was that the site remains relevant to the many small area businesses that make Panama City Beach such an inviting vacation family place. With their existing media experience. Island Communication LLC fully understands how to work with these small businesses and embrace the local economy by hiring locally for sales, photographers, videographers and reporters, etc."

"Also, only Domains New Media LLC can offer the advertisers access to a network covering some 51 City.com sites worldwide along with local drive by cities that include our largest market Atlanta."

Domain New Media LLC has been in business for over fifteen years specializing in geoomains and generic domains that cover popular subjects (one of the premier examples being Fishing.com).

Island Communications LLC has been in the tourism media business for over 35 years and they currently publish leading tourist magazines for the Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head, South Carolina markets. Island also operates a brochure and magazine distribution network in hotel lobbies on Hilton Head and surrounding areas and they own and operate six pure city .com brands. 

One other note to pass along before we head into the weekend that will be of special interest to our Canadian friends -  MyID.ca has aunched a comprehensive .ca domain marketplace that is offering tens of thousands of .ca ccTLD domains for sale. The marketplace is devoted exclusively to Canada's country code domains - the first marketplace of this size to ever focus on a single extension.

The site's domain inventory spans more than 40 categories and covers a wide range of pricing from less than $100 to more than $100,000. If you are interested in .ca domains you will want to bookmark their URL, http://domainmarket.myid.ca.
