Letter & Brief Bio from Ron Jackson

Now that you have discovered Domain Name Journal, some of you may be wondering who I am and why I took it upon myself to publish an electronic trade magazine devoted to this business? 

Every real industry has its own professional “trade publication” and I felt the domain name industry was ready for one of its own. So Domain Name Journal was created and went online Jan. 1, 2003. The publication has enjoyed rapid growth since then thanks to he terrific co-operation and support we have received from key individuals and companies throughout the industry.  

As someone who has always loved language, this industry holds a powerful fascination for me.  Imagine - a business built entirely upon words – what more could you ask for! Though I had barely graduated from newbie status as a domain reseller when I began DNJ, I did bring an extensive background in media and business creation/ownership to the table. That has helped  me in gathering industry information and presenting it to you on a site that I am hopeful every one will find to be a valuable resource.    

For those who are interested, here is a brief summary of how I arrived at this point. After majoring in broadcast journalism I began my career as a radio news director at a small station in Ohio. Within a couple of years I moved on to television as a news reporter with an ABC-TV affiliate in Florida. Two years after arriving there I became the station’s Sports Director when the SD moved on to a bigger market. I later moved on to a Top 20 market myself, doing sports for the CBS-TV station in Tampa.  

After 20 years in radio/TV I decided I wanted to start my own business and opened a series of record stores, an antique shop and various internet ventures. I bought my first domain name in 1997 and put my first site online at that time (musicparadise.com). In early 2002 I was looking for additional names for my internet projects when I stumbled upon this business. The rest is not history, but rather just the beginning of what I hope will be a long history in this industry. 

The domain name business has gone through a major shakeout with the pricking of the internet bubble, but I believe this is a very exciting time. Things are changing rapidly and there are always opportunities in such an environment if you just keep your eyes open for them.

Though none of us can predict the future, one thing is for sure - there will be no shortage of news, prospects and people to talk about! We intend to be here to do just that. 

Sincerely, 

Ron Jackson
