Domain Name News Acquires

by Adam Strong in Categories: Miscellaneous

Domain Name News is pleased to announce our new domain name for Domain Name News. of course!

From the beginning we’ve branded and used the DNN name. We knew we would have to do this. Acronyms are big in this business. Shorthand on chat and domainer forums have given rise to DNW, DNJ, DNF, NP, DBR, TTF, DS and DS, TZ, ND, DZ, HF, NJ, TDNAM, SN, and SN, BD, NM, DM, DDC, DDN and a host of others I’m probably forgetting (feel free to remind me in the comments). Our initials have the added bonus that the “sound” of DNN rings similar to media titans such as CNN or TNN. The fact that we provide a “media/news” service as well, makes the name an even better fit.

As domain investors, we believe a good domain is an important part of an online strategy, but as content producers we also know that the real success of a business depends on the quality of the product not just on the name. We move forward with a shorter and easier to find domain, and continue to provide our readers with unique and fresh news and views from the domain name business.

Congratulations guys, it’s a top domain for a news site. Not only serves your site well but stands strong on its own with resale value. I won’t be surprised if one day another co. will come by and buy it from you, taking the approach of “we must have it” and will do “whatever it takes”.

Excellent purchase and fits your brand perfectly! Positions you perfectly to own the niche in domain news and information. And, as both a domain investor and content provider, you are correct in that content is king and, to date, the “DNN” staff has done an excellent job providing fresh, relevant content.

Congratulations again,

Great acquisition! It’ll be interesting to hear how your traffic increases, especially with “D” so close to “C” on the keyboard!

When will you be opening your street-level studio in downtown Chicago? :)

This is a smart and ballsy acquisition, as is not only a great domain name for them, but it also happens to be a tremendous domain name in general that must have cost them a small fortune. It’s great to see leading domain investors thinking like smart domain investors. […]
