CentralNic Invests $1.62 Million In .Tickets New Top-Level Domain

newgtldCentralNic plc, “the internet platform business which derives revenues from the global sale of domain names”, today announced that further to the announcement on 18 September 2014, the Group is investing US$ 1.62 million in Accent Media Ltd (“Accent Media”), the successful applicant for the .tickets new Top-Level Domain (“TLD”).  CentralNic’s investment will equate to around 12% equity stake in the share capital of Accent Media (£1 ordinary shares).

The investment comes as part of CentralNic’s on-going strategy of investing in Top-Level Domain applicants as well as acting as a business partner to their operators, as announced at the time of CentralNic’s listing on AIM in September 2013.  The Group’s invested funds were used by Accent Media to acquire the .tickets domain in a private auction, winning a contention set which included four other applicants.  In addition to this, CentralNic has entered into a contract with Accent Media to be both the exclusive wholesaler (“registry service provider”) and one of the retail partners for the .tickets TLD.

Commenting on the investment, Ben Crawford CEO, of CentralNic plc, said: “The .tickets Top-Level Domain will be a compelling new tool to assist consumers in easily identifying legitimate and trusted ticket sales sites, as well as empowering venues, entertainers and sports organisations to improve their use of the internet by enabling fans to purchase tickets safely and securely.  We are delighted to be working with Accent Media in delivering this innovative new tool for the ticketing industry, and we look forward to delivering real benefits to consumers as soon as possible.”

Accent Media Founder Steve Machin added: “We have brought together top specialists from across the ticketing and domain name industries to execute the vision for the .tickets domain.  We look forward to working with CentralNic to deliver what we believe will be one of the most innovative uses of a new Top-Level Domain bringing significant benefits to online consumers and businesses in the global ticketing industry.”

sedoSedo published a report on the dmexco 2014
Digital Marketing Exposition & Conference that was held in Cologne Germany. The conference had 32,000 visitors and Sedo along with representatives from Famous Four Media, Donuts, DotClub, NicAT, and Denic attended it.

Jodie Chamberlain had this to say about her interactions at dmexco: “While dmexco participants were knowledgeable about traditional domain endings, I’d say that 90% of them never heard of the new gTLDs. But they were online marketers, so it just took seconds for them to understand what opportunities new gTLDs can bring them.”  Continue reading

Registry and Registrar Pricing Problems With .Website, .Host and .Press

newgtldI had made a landrush pre-order for the domain After landrush had ended I checked to see if I got the domain only to see that my pre-order had disappeared from my account and that the domain was available to register.
