Pioneering Domain Investor/Developers Michael & David Castello Launch New Site at CastelloBrothers.com

Michael & David Castello are very distinct individuals but in the domain world they've been so successful together that they have turned The Castello Brothers into a third equally prominent identity. We first wrote about them back in 2006 in a Cover Story that remains one of the most popular ones we've ever published. Since then we've written about several of their landmark sales, including a 2014 Cover Story that provided an inside account of the $3.1 million sale of Whisky.com. They are equally well-known for their successfully developed websites including PalmSprings.com, Nashville.com and, most recently,  Kennel.com, a site that was just launched in March.

Still, the brothers, with many similar category defining .com domains in their portfolio, have much more to do. Today, they opened the next chapter of The Castello Brothers story by announcing the launch of a new site at, where else?, CastelloBrothers.com. The site features many of their premium domain names for sale, biographies about the brothers and a F.A.Q. section that contains their unique perspective about what makes these names so valuable.

Michael said, "We equate owning premium domain names such as Cost.com, Sample.com and Traveler.com to undeveloped beachfront property. Development takes vision, but the monetary benefits are incredible. Regardless, as much as we enjoy breathing life into these names, my brother and I began to realize that it would be impossible to develop all of them." The new site gives them a showcase to offer other entrepreneurs an opportunity to acquire and develop a top tier online business of their own.

Michael added, "COVID-19 forced a lot of people to work from home and these premium names are the perfect vehicle to build a successful on-line business from the convenience of your home office. David and I generated millions of dollars from the power of these worldwide brands and we did it all from home."

With the launch of Kennel.com, the brothers think they have another big winner on their hands. David said, "We changed our minds about selling Kennel.com and I'm glad we did. By the end of 2020, Kennel.com will be one of the largest sites about dogs in the world."
