Archeo, Inc., a division of Marchex, Inc. (NASDAQ:MCHX), today announced the launch of the Archeo Domains Marketplace (
), providing direct access for businesses, brokers and individuals to Archeo’s portfolio of more than 200,000 premium domain names available for sale. The searchable portfolio is presented in 21 categories, ranging from Business & Finance to Technology and Travel in a responsive, mobile-friendly design.
According to Archeo Chief Operating Officer Rod Diefendorf, launching the Archeo Domains Marketplace is a key milestone in the company’s broader mission of establishing a vibrant and transparent ecosystem to facilitate domain buying and selling, including the development of tools and technology enabling businesses to further promote and grow their brand.
“The launch of the Archeo Domains Marketplace is an exciting step toward unlocking the true value of our portfolio,” said Diefendorf. “We have thousands of top names and are excited to finally showcase these online while providing visitors with useful information through a simple and intuitive search interface.”
The new website features an easy-to-navigate interface that enables users to search from among more than 200,000 Archeo-owned websites, including such names as Jerseys.com, CaliforniaWines.com, HollywoodMovies.com, Destination.com, Futbol.com, Refinancing.com, PetShop.com, Debts.com, uTicket.com, and LiveWell.com. Archeo’s dedicated sales team, averaging 10 years experience each in the domains industry, will directly administer and manage the Marketplace.
Archeo will also be working directly with some of the industry’s leading brokers to help their customers find and purchase specific names from Archeo’s portfolio. Some of Archeo’s current broker partners include Igloo, Names Plus Marketing and Domain Holdings.
“The Archeo domain portfolio has been well known over the years for its quality as well as its comparative inaccessibility. I think I can speak on behalf of most of the industry when I say how excited Igloo.com is to see Archeo launch its marketplace to finally unveil one of the top portfolios in the space,” said Tessa Holcomb, Igloo.com Co-Founder & CEO. “We are delighted to partner with Archeo in making these premium names available to our clients.”
