“…numeric domain names are highly prized by our customers, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer these premium .asia domains…” Jonathan Tenenbaum, General Manager of NameJet
Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) July 30, 2015
NameJet, the leading aftermarket domain name auction platform, in partnership with RightOfTheDot, a company specializing in marketing & sales strategy for new gTLDs, and DotAsia, the organization charged with running the .asia top-level domain (TLD), are offering a select group of premium 3-4 digit numeric .asia domain names.
An example of the names being auctioned include: 5678.asia, 889.asia and 797.asia. Backorders may be placed now and auctions will begin to close on August 18, 2015.
NameJet is a proven leader in the Asian marketplace. In the last year, approximately 20% of visitors to the NameJet auction platform originated from Asia and the amount of NameJet auctions won by Asian bidders is even higher. “We have had great success in the Asian marketplace,” said Jonathan Tenenbaum, General Manager of NameJet, “Plus, numeric domain names are highly prized by our customers, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer these premium .asia domains to them.”
Asia is the Internet’s fastest growing market and there are nearly 250,000 .Asia names already registered to date. In addition, large corporations are already using their .asia domains such as renowned PR firm Ogilvy with BestofOgilvy.asia and leading entertainment company Live Nation with LiveNation.asia. With expanding economies and growing access to technology, Asia has one of the world’s largest and fastest growing Internet populations. For example, China currently has more Internet users than any other country, with 600 million people online. However, that number only accounts for 42 percent of the country’s population, leaving considerable room for growth. In contrast, many Western nations already have Internet penetration rates higher than 75% percent. This all speaks to the value of the premium .asia domains being listed now on NameJet.
NameJet, LLC, a joint venture between eNom, Inc., a subsidiary of Rightside (NASDAQ: NAME) and Network Solutions, LLC, a subsidiary Web.com (NASDAQ: WWWW), is the world’s leading domain name auction platform.
