TrafficMatch promotes domain name traffic to advertisers.
TrafficMatch pitches the company’s 300 million monthly visitors direct to advertisers – and a big part of that 300 million is domain name traffic.
Here’s how the TrafficMatch website explains it:
TrafficMatch is a leading provider of high value online traffic. With nearly 300 million visitors passing through our network every month, we offer one of the best opportunities to augment your online marketing mix. We are the pioneers of untapped traffic sources such as direct navigation and email traffic that yield engaged visitors at a lower price than established online media channels…
A trademark application the company just filed lists the goods and services for TrafficMatch as “Online marketing and advertising services; domain monetization services for monetizing web traffic visiting undeveloped domains”.
Although the site also has a section for publishers (e.g. domain owners) to submit an inquiry to monetize with TrafficMatch, DomainSponsor isn’t going anywhere. TrafficMatch is essentially a new brand to market alternative types of traffic and monetization.
Based on historical whois records, it looks like Oversee.net acquired the TrafficMatch.com domain name from eCorp. eCorp was founded by Chad Folkening, who also co-founded Domain Holdings – a competitor in the domain monetization space.
Updated app includes notifications of domains for sale.
DomainSponsor today announced the release of its updated apps on both Apple and Android.
The app has a number of features, as explained by Oversee.net VP & GM Internet Monetization Dwayne Walker this morning.
Some of the features are exactly what you’d expect on a domain parking app:
Domain level statistics
Portfolio level statistics
Quick view of top 100 domains
Data by country
But one feature is low-tech but may make it worth downloading the app: domains for sale notifications.
Oversee.net is one of the largest domain portfolio holders in the world. It occasionally puts portfolios of domains up for sale, and it will announce these portfolios solely through the app.
The updated app is available on iTunes, Android Play, and the Amazon App Store.
A space shuttle and the Magic Castle come to Webfest.
DomainSponsor’s Webfest (formerly known as DomainFest) is known for its glitzy parties.
It looks like February’s event will keep the reputation going.
The event is holding two big parties.
The first is (forgive me) “out of this world”. It will take place at the Space Shuttle Endeavour Pavilion, where you’ll drink cocktails and eat dinner underneath the shuttle. Astronaut Garrett Reisman will make a special appearance.
Second is a closing night party at the Magic Castle. I’ve been to this private magic club before, and it’s a real treat. I assume they’ll have a few magic shows going on during the party.
Webfest takes place Tuesday Feb 5 – Thursday Feb 7, 2013 in Santa Monica, California. Early bird ticket prices are available through the end of the month.
DOMAINfest gets a new name as it branches out from domains.
It was only a matter of time.
Oversee.net’s DOMAINfest has new name beginning with next year’s show: Webfest Global.
This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Although the conference is run by Oversee.net’s DomainSponsor division, the subject matter has shifted in recent years. It’s not all about domains any more; it’s about lead gen, search engine optimization, affiliate marketing, mobile and web development.
The name change may help attract a wider audience of web professionals. Still, I expect the conference to retain its domain name roots. It will continue to be a conference built upon domainers, at least in the near future.
In fact, this year’s agenda seems to break down between a day of domains, a day of search/optimization, and a day of mobile. This is an interesting approach and may lead to some people coming for the day that most interests them.
As I reported earlier, there will be a domain auction in conjunction with Moniker.
This year’s conference takes place February 5-7, 2013 in Santa Monica. Registration is now open for $1,095.
Mike Song, an early Oversee.net employee, has returned to the company as an account manager.
Song was hired by the company in 2003 after it launched the DomainSponsor domain parking service. He was the fifth employee of the company. He later held positions in operations and portfolio acquisitions with DomainSponsor.
Song left Oversee.net in 2008 to join MediaTrust, according to his LinkedIn profile. At MediaTrust he was a manager of business development.
He will report to Sam Tseng, Director of Sales at DomainSponsor. Tseng is another long time Oversee.net employee who also joined the company in 2003.
