Fast Growing Registrar SAV.com Reaches 1 Million Domains Under Management Just 2 Years After Launch

Only 43 of the nearly 3,000 domain registrars in business worldwide have passed the 1 million mark in domains under management.  Today Anthos Chrysanthou, the Founder & CEO of registrar and domain marketplace SAV.com, announced that his company has just done it and it took them only two years since they launched to do it - a time frame few have been able to match.

Chrysanthou attributed Sav.comís exponential growth to offering features and benefits that have resonated with entrepreneurs, small businesses, and domain investors.  He noted, "From the beginning Sav.comís mission was to remove as much friction as possible related to the buying and selling of domain names.  For entrepreneurs and small businesses, that meant providing them with a marketplace containing a wide selection of quality domain names capable of helping them quickly launch or expand their online presence.  We also knew that competing with established domain marketplaces for quality inventory would not be easy, so broke away from traditional 20% marketplace commission pricing practices by charging domain sellers only a 4% commission, with no hidden fees. This innovative pricing model, combined with a ďFor SaleĒ landing page that is highly optimized for conversions, quickly attracted more and more sellers of quality domain name inventory to the Sav.com marketplace and registrar."

Anthos added, "It didnít take long for the snowball effect to kick in.  New inventory of quality domain names attracted more retail buyers, which then attracted more domain sellers, which then attracted more retail buyers, and so on.  Exponential growth and 1 million domains under management was the result, with no signs of slowing."   


To further support growth, Sav.com also removed cost-related friction for entrepreneurs, SMBs and domain investors by offering extremely low domain registration and renewal rates. This is something I can personally attest to. For simplicity's sake, I like to keep my domains spread across as few registrars as possible and have for years now have been using no more than 2 or 3 well established companies. However, after watching SAV's growth I finally decided to add one more and opened an account there in July. Less than 3 months later I've already registered over 100 domains at SAV and have found their clean, simple interface for managing domains to be very easy to use. On the few occasions I've needed to contact customer service, my experience in that area has also been good. I haven't tried the company's other services yet but do know they offer free WhoIs privacy, free SSL certificates and have also eliminated domain backorder placement and fulfillment fees. When you take all of that into consideration it is no wonder SAV has become a very popular choice.
