As DomainState.com folds DNForum.com launches brand new platform
As we have said before, a business that does not evolve is destined to fail.
Time and again, DomainState.com – historically the 3rd oldest domain forum after DNForum & DomainGator – has failed to display an ounce of commercial wisdom; all while its three owners/moderators have been praised as “uber domainers” by members of that sleepy community.
Unfortunately, throughout the seven years of its existence, DomainState’s lack of any attempt to monetize its traffic or generate advertising revenue has caused its active traffic and user participation to drop substantially.
That, combined with the fact that in an attempt to keep the forum under the wraps of strict moderation – some would call it stupidity – the “Three Amigos” have blocked Google bots from scanning the forum; an SEO suicide.
Meanwhile, DNForum.com – the biggest domain name forum in the known universe – is ramping up its efforts for world domination. Armed with a switch to the stable version of vBulletin 4.0 and a new, lightweight skin, DNForum.com enters 2010 with a vision and a plan.
Under Adam Dicker’s leadership, a group of capable & savvy moderators assist in making the DNForum community a live, active place where sales take place, domainers exchange opinions, insight and advice – a domain name forum that does not merely exist as a projection of the owner’s ego.
Unlike DomainState.com which is going on sale at an on-site auction in the coming days, DNForum’s value is immense to the domain community and its fanatic supporters who have made it the number one domain name forum.
