Rightside is a recognized leader in Internet domain name services. With a mission to advance the way businesses and consumers define and present themselves online, the company is the industry’s only end-to-end vertically integrated provider operating at scale and able to service all aspects of a domain name. Rightside is also a chief participant in an historic expansion of the Internet name space – broadening domain name extensions from just 22 legacy options like .com and .net to potentially more than 1,300 including ~700 generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) and 600 branded Top Level Domains (like .Loreal or .Google).
Rightside recently launched a new registry platform that offers one of the largest portfolios of domain name extensions on the market – including highly desirable gTLDs such as .REVIEWS, .SOCIAL and .ATTORNEY. The company currently has 16 million domain names under management, more than 20,000 distribution partners, an award-winning retail registrar and the leading domain name auction service through its NameJet joint venture. The vertical integration between its registry and registrar businesses uniquely positions Rightside to service every stage of the domain name lifecycle – from discovery and registration to development and monetization of domain names – while also supporting broad market adoption and usage.
Pervasive megatrends are driving substantial growth potential in the Internet’s multi-billion dollar domain name industry, and prominent players like Rightside are well-positioned to benefit from increased momentum in the new gTLD expansion program. The company’s business model and attractive domain name unit economics dramatically improve Rightside’s revenue, margin and free cash flow opportunity. These key drivers coupled with leadership by an experienced management team, experienced in the Internet and domain name services industry, put Rightside in a solid position for compelling growth and value creation.
