Chris Kern, President of Internet Finance International Corp. stated “the recent domain name acquisitions in the travel and business verticals are very valuable, especially when coupled with a specific type of business, city, state or country. These recent additions are crucial to building our online media network and creates a compelling platform for direct search and local search which are two of the hottest markets in Internet advertising.” Further developments and specific site launches in these verticals will be announced in the near future.
