Leading Domain Name Registrar Go Daddy Sponsors Domain Development Initiative, Helps Industry Mature
SEATTLE, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Epik, LLC, the largest mass domain development company in the world, announced today that Go Daddy, the largest domain name registrar in the world, will be the Gold Sponsor for the Epik.com Domain Developers Conference in Seattle, September 15-17.
Plagued by falling revenues from 'parking companies', domain investors are looking for new ways to monetize their Internet assets. Historically, domain conferences mainly focused on different pay-per-click (PPC) companies, platforms, tactics and strategies. The Epik.com Developers Conference teaches domain investors how to easily, cost-effectively and scalably build out domain names related to products, directories, wikis, reference sites, polls, Q&A and more.
"Domain development is the natural progression to pay-per-click monetization, but building websites one-by-one can be incredibly slow and cost-prohibitive," says Rob Monster, Chairman and CEO of Epik. "This conference teaches Internet investors and entrepreneurs how they can mass develop domain names and turn them into revenue-generating assets, and since Go Daddy controls a very large percent of the finest in unregistered and after-market domains, they have a vested interest in seeing domain monetization progress to the next level," says Monster. "We are proud to have them on board."
Among other assistance, Go Daddy will be helping to promote the event through social media and direct customer contact. "Go Daddy is a natural partner for the Epik Domain Developers Conference," says Paul Nicks, Director of Product Development - Aftermarket at GoDaddy.com. "Go Daddy has always believed domain names are 21st century real estate -- but that's only part of the equation. A solid development plan can help any great domain name reach its maximum potential."
In addition to the educational tracks, the conference will include a live auction of 300 revenue generating websites based on the Epik platform, including - AbdominalTrainer.com, Collision.com, Haircare.com, HardDrives.com, Heroine.com, Maid.com, HDProjector.com, Patents.com, Spoons.com, WirelessHeadphone.com and WiFi.com.
Epik was founded in 2009 with a simple goal – to help domain investors evolve from a singular dependence on domain parking to a more diversified array of value creation strategies that unlock the potential associated with an intuitive domain name. Epik is based in Seattle and is a leading provider of managed solutions for individuals and institutions who seek exposure to the domain name asset class. Learn more by visiting http://www.Epik.com
