There’s a very good chance you’ve heard of Merlin before. He built an incredibly successful domain business in his early 20′s and since then he has continued to grow his business and innovate like crazy. Merlin is a good friend of mine and I always find I learn something new every time we get together.
Now Merlin is launching two exciting new services, both of which look like they will make a real impact in 2013. The first service is called NameBuy.com is a new domain sales platform focused on .COM domains five years and older. Since this probably represents over 85% of what I buy I can tell you that I’ll be visiting this site frequently.
The next site is called Portfolio Market and it is the first of its kind, or at least the first time I’ve ever seen anything like it! Like the name says, it is a marketplace dedicated to buying and selling domain portfolios.
Even though the site is not up yet Merlin was nice enough to send me some screenshots so my newsletter subscribers and blog readers can be some of the first to see the new service! Ready to see what Merlin’s been cooking up? Here are some of the first screenshots ever seen of PortfolioMarket.com:
