Above.com  Integrates Domain Monetization, Registration & Sales in a New Domain Investor Platform

Above.com has undergone a major makeover. The well-known domain services company based in Australia launched a new Domain Investor Platform today that combines a new Domain Name Marketplace, Domain Registrar and Escrow service with their 

 

existing Domain Parking Manager service. 

With those changes Above.com customers can now manage and register domain names and buy or sell domains through a single interface with access to a much higher level of detail

(independent, third-party traffic and revenue statistics with demographics and a daily breakdown covering up to six months) to base buying decisions on.

The new domain market place allows instant domain transfers to buyers and features integrated domain escrow service for all sale transactions, while the new registrar interface was designed specifically with domainers in mind.

Above.com Founder and CEO Ren Warmuz said, “For the first time, domain investors can make purchase decisions based on verified, historically accurate domain statistics independent of the monetization service used. 18 months in the making, our new platform simplifies 'everything' with an integrated registrar, domain parking manager, escrow and aftermarket." Warmuz said a key feature of the new sales platform ensures that all revenue and traffic statistics are imported directly from third-party monetization services assuring buyers that all reported statistics are factual. 

Above.com Director of Domain Services Victor Pitts added, "“Our goal is to provide domain investors with cutting edge technology and a better choice. Domain investment becomes smarter and easier with the new Above.com platform." Pitts noted that the company's system makes it easy to test and compare traffic and revenue from different domain parking services on a single dashboard so the investor can see the total revenue that domain or portfolio earns.  "This is especially helpful when deciding which domains to keep, delete, develop, or sell as domains are expiring," Pitts said. 

Regarding the new auction marketplace, Pitts said, "It is designed to make domain submission to auctions easy, while still giving the domain investor full control over the particulars of the auction.  Investors can even opt to disclose the full monetization history of any domain submitted to the marketplace making traffic, earnings, and geographic distribution of traffic immediately available to the buyer."

Pitts said the Above.com team will be next month's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Conference on Florida's Fort Lauderdale Beach to personally demonstrate the system's features and answer any questions domain investors attending might have.
