Company provides data about domain arbitrage, domains under management, and how much it earns from Google.
There are a few additional data points in the annual report that I think are interesting.
First, CentralNic said domain arbitrage within its domain monetization business was up 35% last year. This is in line with overall growth in the monetization business. The monetization business serves 5,000 customers and managed 23 million domains and traffic sources last year. I suspect this includes domains that were monetized after expiration.
Second, it reveals that at the end of the year, CentralNic had about 28.8 million domains under management.
Third, Google accounted for over 40% of the company’s revenue last year. This is mostly due to being the primary monetization ad partner ($95.8 million), but the company also accounted for $4.8 million to its indirect channel (reseller) and $0.8 million to its direct channel. The report does not name Google but states that one company accounted for these numbers.
