Industry Pioneer Monte Cahn Joins DomainHoldings Team as Executive and Advisor

Monte Cahn, the domain industry pioneer who founded Moniker.com in 1999 and served as the popular registrar and brokerage service's CEO for 10 years, has taken a new role with DomainHoldings.com. Cahn (who was the subject of one of our earliest Cover Stories back in 2003) will serve as an Executive in Residence and Advisor to the Board at DomainHoldings where he will help shape the company’s growth and strategic direction while also taking a hands-on role with the company's premium domain brokerage, auction and monetization services.

Cahn will also continue to serve as the President and Director of RightOfTheDot, LLC, an Internet consulting and advisement firm, that he co-founded with another industry leader, Michael Berkens

Regarding his new position, Cahn said “I chose to invest and take an active role in Domain Holdings because I really believe in and respect the leadership, like the differentiating and leading technology offering, and know that my

contribution can further the strategic direction and success." Cahn also noted that RightoftheDot, LLC has chosen Domain Holdings Group as one of its partners for providing premium domain sales and monetization for new and existing TLD clients.

Cahn first gained widespread fame when he successfully brokered the historic sales of WallStreet.com and Autos.com that were recognized as the first $1 million and $2 million

sales in the industry respectively. Overall Cahn has been involved in selling more than $300 million worth of domain names in the last 10 years, including seven-figure sales of Cameras.com, Dating.com, Photo.com, Bored.com, CreditCheck.com and Slots.com among others.  

Cahn is also credited with starting the very first domain brokerage company in 1996. He pioneered and innovated what are now considered industry standard services, including WhoIs privacy, domain escrow, domain appraisals, bulk domain management, domain security and theft prevention, stealth acquisitions and live domain auctions.

Domain Holdings Co-Founder John Ferber said, “Monte brings with him a range of knowledge dating back to the mid-90s where 

he was able to contribute services that widely shaped the industry and are still in use today. That type of forward thinking fits with our philosophy as we add to our brokerage and monetization services.”
