October 27, 2006; 12:02 AM

Pompano Beach, FL –, the first and only provider of Domain Asset Management™, today announced the availability of MarketPlace Pro, a full-service online domain transaction platform. MarketPlace Pro is the most comprehensive tool currently available for researching, finding, buying and selling domain names. More than three million domain names are available for sale now at

“With the introduction of Marketplace Pro, Moniker offers the only 360-degree perspective that incorporates registration, buying, selling, live auctions, and monetization all in one online platform,” said Monte Cahn, co-founder and chief executive officer of Moniker. “Marketplace Pro lets domainers and marketers, whether holding small or large portfolios, actively, find, buy, sell, and manage their online assets quickly, easily and safely.”

Unmatched Search Functionality

Marketplace Pro’s domain search interface covers both new registrations and aftermarket listings. The system returns all available options and allows the user to choose a domain based on specific needs. Users can search and sort results by price, industry, keyword, revenues and unique users as well as compare up to three domain properties side-by-side to determine the best one for them.

No other online domain transaction platform offers this full range of services. Moniker Marketplace Pro makes listing domains and managing multiple negotiations effortless. A simple guide directs sellers through the necessary steps to sell a domain. Sellers can determine the preferred method to sell their domain: Buy Now, direct negotiation or auction.

The platform allows users to purchase a domain directly for the price listed or participate in an auction where the user will compete with other bidders, depending on the choice of the seller. Users will be able to complete their purchase using a variety of payment methods or loan type financing services provided by Moniker.

A Highlight of T.R.A.F.F.I.C.

Marketplace Pro comes online with the start of this year’s highly anticipated Live Auction managed by Moniker, held October 27, 2006, during T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East, a domain industry conference being at the Westin Diplomat, Hollywood, Fla. The Live Auction has attracted hundreds of individuals and companies seeking domains that will add to the value of their domain asset portfolios or build, protect or extend their existing Web brands.

To take part in the live bidding, one must be a registered attendee of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. EAST conference, which runs October 24-28, or you can qualify to be a proxy bidder. For more information on the conference, visit

Domain Financing On Site and After

Moniker along with its partner Domain Capital, will offer domain financing to leverage domain purchases made at this event or for other transactions. Moniker and Domain Capital have been pioneering the same concept for virtual real-estate for years in a fashion similar to real estate mortgage financing. Fifty percent of the previous Live Auction’s purchases were financed using this financing service. This service is also available to domain purchases made on Marketplace Pro.
