Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
Domain registration and hosting company DomainIt.com today announced the appointment of Victor Pitts as the firm's Vice President. In his new role, Pitts will be responsible for growing market share and profits for DomainIt's core domain registration business, as well as evaluating and overseeing new business ventures for the company. Pitts is well known in the domain industry as the former Vice President for Moniker, a division of Oversee.net.
Over the past few months, DomainIt has been gearing up to become more competitive in the marketplace and provide the kinds of services and support the industry demands. "We think there are some significant opportunities being overlooked in the current business climate," said Paul Goldstone, CEO and Founder of DomainIt. "Bringing Victor on board was an opportunity we couldn't pass up. He will be working on some exciting new business ventures, where his leadership experience and industry connections can benefit DomainIt tremendously. We fully expect him to hit the ground running."
Originally founded in 1996, DomainIt is an ICANN-accredited domain registration and hosting company, providing the essential services required to run a business online. The DomainIt team boasts strong programming capabilities and the company is known for providing an extremely user-friendly interface and competitive pricing that's up to 74% lower than the marketplace, making it a favorite resource among domainers and small business owners alike. The pioneering company developed the first ever domain search interface to determine if a particular domain is available for registration.
Before joining DomainIt, Pitts worked for Moniker.com, where domain registrations grew from 300,000 to 3 million during his tenure. Prior to joining Moniker, Pitts ran Nexlook Designs, his own web hosting and development company, and also had a successful career as a national sales executive with Motorola. "In addition to helping grow core services, I'll be working to better understand and harness some of DomainIt's impressive intellectual property to better serve clients," explained Pitts. "This company has a strong foundation of providing quality services for nearly 15 years, and Paul's vision of the future is ambitious. Together, we have an excellent opportunity to grow the business by providing better services for both domain investors and business owners."
Goldstone no stranger to smart domain moves
Goldstone's renewed focus on growing the services available to experienced domainers is expected to attract new interest from the close-knit domain industry. As a domain investor with more than 1,000 names in his portfolio, Goldstone knows what a professional domain investor is looking for in a Registrar. In addition to running DomainIt, he also operates http://www.DomainSearch.com and the popular domain industry directory, http://www.iGoldrush.com. In addition, Goldstone works to maintain strong relationships within the international Registrar community as a member of the ICANN Registrar Stakeholder Group, where he designs and maintains the official ICANN website for the group.
Symbolic start to new business venture
Interestingly, Pitts officially signed on with his new position at DomainIt on a very symbolic day to domain investors, the 25th anniversary of the first domain registration on March 15, 1985. Today, more than 192 million domains are registered worldwide and the registration business shows no signs of slowing down, even in a lackluster economy. "We didn't realize it right away, but we think it's a coincidence that foretells success … not only for DomainIt, but for the entire industry," said Goldstone. "We've got some exciting plans to grow in a robust industry, and bringing Victor on board is just the start."
