The Lowdown

June 9, 2008 Post

Here's the The Lowdown from DNJournal.com! Updated daily to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry!

Compiled by Ron Jackson (Editor/Publisher)


Rob Monster is on the move again - teaming up this time with the Castello Brothers, Michael and David and their company Castello Cities Internet Networks, Inc. (CCIN) to 

develop their Traveler.com domain into a global travel portal. Rob's companies, Monster Venture Partners (MVP) and DomainStrategies.com, have recently entered a number of joint development projects with owners of top tier generic domain names, including HealthCare.com, WiFi.com, Patents.com and others.

CCIN CEO Michael Castello said, ""We first made our mark developing intuitive Geo-specific travel sites such as PalmSprings.com, Acapulco.com and Nashville.com while Traveler.com was the 800-pound gorilla waiting quietly in the wings. CCIN's partnership with Rob Monster and Domain Strategies will unlock the global potential of Traveler.com to become the ultimate travel portal and make that vision a reality."

Rob Monster, Managing Director of MVP and Chairman of Domain Strategies, will serve the new company that has been formed to build Traveler.com as Chairman of the Board. A search for a CEO is under way. The company headquarters is expected to be in Seattle, which is already a global hub for online travel innovation, including firms such as Expedia, Yapta, and Farecast

Monster said "The Castello Brothers have assembled one of the highest quality domain portfolios that are still privately held. I am very much looking forward to partnering with David and Michael to develop the Traveler.com domain into a world class company. 

From our industry due diligence, we believe that there is a large opportunity to create a travel industry portal that is both user-centric and global. A number of the building block technologies and strategic partners have already been identified. We expect to bring the ingredients together quickly in a manner similar to other MVP-backed domain development ventures."
