Not Just for Cybersquatters Anymore: Domain Name Sales Go Mainstream

December 17, 2008; 03:20 AM

PRLog (Press Release) – Dec 16, 2008 – It’s a tough climate for all business owners, but those who stay aggressive will win.

So says Tan Tran, who is positioning his site to help give business owners a leg up by helping them find the domain name that will set them apart, drive customers to their site and help them compete in this increasingly challenging economy. 

But these days, says Tran, founder and CEO of, “most quality domain names are already owned and must be purchased in the domain aftermarket.” 

And that’s where FreshDrop comes into play. The site essentially consolidates the domain aftermarket industry by supplying data on most of the domain names currently for sale. 

The site itself doesn’t own any of the millions of domains listed on its site, but instead has agreements with the majority of the domain auction houses to list and provide analytics on each domain. 

It’s a solid resource for business owners who are looking to do business on the internet. 

“"The internet is no longer the future for businesses.  It is a necessity of the now. With the ever increasing population of online users, businesses of all sizes need to have good online presence,” Tran says, “and this starts by having a professional domain name.  The cost to market a lesser-quality domain name far exceeds the cost to purchase a more desirable domain name. " 

FreshDrop launched in 2006 because Tran saw a need and filled it, providing business owners, webmasters and other web professionals a one-stop shopping portal for their domain name needs. 

Through FreshDrop, these business people begin to understand the importance of a good domain name. Tran explains that case studies have shown how some domain names inherently have traffic going to the domain without any marketing. 

This phenomenon is known as ‘type-in’ traffic and FreshDrop provides analytics to measure the potential that a domain can have with this kind of traffic, giving the business person some assurance they are making the right purchasing decision. 

FreshDrop also provides a whole host of analytics that measures how well a domain might perform on Google and other search engines. As more and more business owners discover the power of the internet, only a few understand the importance of the domain name and the web presence. 

“The power of the internet for businesses,” Tran said, “is that they now have the potential to reach millions upon millions of consumers right from their living room as opposed to traditional brick and mortar models.”
