Who We Are
Domain Holdings Group, Inc. (DH) is the world’s foremost domain development, marketing, and technology company. Based in Delray Beach, Florida, Domain Holdings Group, Inc. was founded by a group of leading internet marketing experts whose domain industry experience dates back to 1996. The company’s award-winning, distinguished management team retains over 50 years of combined experience working with a multitude of industry-defining organizations, including Advertising.com, Google, America Online (AOL), and others.
Domain Holdings was founded by industry pioneers John Ferber and Chad Folkening, whose collective experience combines for over 30 years and countless billions of dollars in sales for their customers from the product and services they have developed.
Mr. Ferber was the Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of Advertising.com, successfully shepherding the company’s growth into the world’s largest third-party online advertising network. Advertising.com was acquired by AOL in 2004 for $500 million and is the cornerstone of AOL’s Advertising Division.
Mr. Folkening is the founder of eCorp.com and has been active in the domain and tech space since establishing himself as an industry visionary in 1996. He has successfully built, sold and acquired websites that have led to development deals and partnerships with leading tech companies like Zynga, and top Fortune 500 companies that include Google, Microsoft and Disney.
The two set out to establish a top-tier company that manages all aspects of a domain’s life-cycle, from acquisition to divestment. Built on the premise of hiring great people, technological innovation and strong customer service, the result is the company you see today.
Hiring Great People:
Led by a team of executives whose reach in the technology space spans across all verticals, they’ve developed a talented team of experienced and entrepreneurial minded people that are essential to the growth of Domain Holdings. Our team offers a well-rounded open forum for problem solving, ensuring a fluid and transparent operation. This ultimately opens the door for leading-edge products and services, from domain brokerage to platform monetization.
In 2010, we released a proprietary platform – DomainPower.com – offering domainers an alternative development and monetization vehicle, as well as traditional parking solutions. Emphasizing ease-of-use and best-of-breed user interface design, the platform uses a key proprietary technology piece called the MDE to produce some of the most competitive payouts in the industry.
Exceptional Customer Experience:
We are made up of domainers and Internet entrepreneurs. The team, from the board down to our interns, is fully entrenched in the domain landscape. This allows us to reach the market with news, innovation, best practices and advice, staying up to date and ahead of the curve in the constant evolution of the Internet landscape. As that landscape changes, so too does the needs of our clients and openly communicating and staying active in the industry allows our company to help clients navigate that change more effectively.
In early 2011, we completed a $2.9 million raise in Series A capital from WWC Capital, BrokersWeb founder and CEO Matias de Tezanos, Valhalla Partners and other angels. The funding enabled us to further position ourselves as a world-class domain life-cycle management company through technological innovation and high-quality talent acquisition.
