Tough Domains: new tool for creating a marketplace, landing pages & instant development

Tough Domains is a relatively new tool that has been developing its online services for the past 2 years.

Tough Domains is a New York based company that “was founded on the principles of providing cutting edge tools and software that will provide the next generation of domainers revolutionary solutions to domain monetization.” The co-founders Tim Koutroubas and Rudy DeDominicis have extensive experience measuring metrics in the domain industry and come from a wide range of backgrounds.

The task of creating a for sale landing page is not easy so Tough Domains has tried to cover everything including many requests made by domainers.

Here are a few of the features of Tough Domains: Buy It Now, Make Offer, multiple payment options, featured domains, social, stats, no stats, UDRP compliance, cookie laws, custom text, min offer, VAT, translations, currency displays, GA, custom logos, SSL, custom metas, emoji and IDN support, custom favicons, uptime, page speed, design, responsive design and the list goes on and on…

So landing pages and domain marketplaces is not a new concept but what makes Tough Domains (TD) different is their alternative to parking. They provide an instant domain development that allows users to host a custom news feed on their domains and use ad networks such as Google AdSense to generate greater revenue for domain names. If you don’t have an AdSense account there is also an option to allow you to display your own ads. You have the option to promote affiliate banners or even your own domain portfolio.

This is an alternative for those not having any luck parking and this is also an alternative for domainers looking to promote their own content and their own ads across their domain portfolio.

Tough Domains has many tools such as instant domain development, commission free landing pages, a domain offer hub to store and track all offers to your domains in one place, domain insights and analytics, and a domain portfolio manager.

Pricing starts at $5,95 per month (billed annually) for up to 2,000 domain names and goes up to $39,95 for the 20,000 domain plan. There is also a free plan (up to 20 domains) that you can use to test out the system.

More features are being launched almost monthly. Coming soon are features like Payoneer Integration (Escrow.com and Paypal are already integrated), featured domains, domain valuation and displaying trademark info.

Tough Domains is also planning to create its very own marketplace and auction tools with low commissions.

Here are some of the tools Tough Domains offers and some links with more information:

  1. Isn’t this like Efty?

    • Recently there have been many domain tool services which is great for domainers. Many of them are similar in what they offer including domain management, landing pages, marketplaces,

      However efty does not offer the following
      – a free plan option forever
      – plans over 5,000 domains
      – custom categories
      – domain development
      – a sortable domain manager
      – domain data on landing pages such as age, alexa, back links
      – large domain logos for landing pages
      -relationships with domain brokers to help sell your names faster
      -featured domains

    • They offer some similar services but are different on a few others.

  2. ZERO examples of landing pages that I could find

  3. It’s difficult to trust that they know what they are doing when they didn’t register tough.domains (it is sitting unregistered at the time of writing this comment).

    • I understand that you are judgemental cause it is a domain name company but I guess you might say that for thousands of companies that didn’t get the matching new gtld.

    • Funny you mention that Dan we actually did register it a few weeks ago. this comment was just published. The partners have personally been domainers since around 2001 but as any domainer knows the lesson never ends.
