Domain Developers Rejoice – DevName Is Here!

There’s a new domain development platform in town from the makers of popular Domain Investing Platform Protrada. It is aptly called DevName and it is already making waves in the Domaining world.


DevName has taken a unique approach to platform-based development by allowing domain owners to use their own revenue feeds thus keeping 100% of the revenue. The system is also fully integrated with TextBroker so you can easily build content-rich sites without having to manage a team of writers.

The sites themselves look pretty stunning and definitely look nothing like a parked page and there are tons of ways to customize the look-and-feel to really make it your own.

Of course talking about it is one thing, seeing it in action and putting it to the test is another, and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. Just like I’m testing-out Epik I will also be testing out DevName and giving you the full scoop. So stay-tuned, this is just the beginning and there’s a lot more to come.

Congratulations to Winged Media on another great addition to the Domaining space, I look forward to pushing the system to its limits and getting some sites ranked and making money! Protrada users can access DevName directly from Protrada making this platform more extensive than ever before, so stop reading this and start developing!

    Hi Morgan,

    Do you think Google will consider these sites to be MFA?

    • Morgan Linton March 8, 2012, 10:35 am

      As long as people use unique content and customize their sites I think that Google would treat these like any other website.

    Proceed with (extreme) caution, Morgan!  This
    has all the trappings of the infamous “Devhub” development
    platform …circa 2009-2010 (and thereafter, subsequently reincarnated in
    the present “Epik” platform).By all appearances, the business model appears to be virtually
    identical (this service gets its money upfront by charging for “development” on a per-site basis; whereas DevHub did it for free, in
    exchange for a share of the site’s ensuing earning-stream); and the
    websites themselves likewise “look and feel” virtually identical.
    For those who don’t remember (or were not catastrophically impacted, as were a number of the largest domain portfolio holders in the industry),
    literally thousands of DevHub websites were de-indexed and banned by
    Google. Subsequently, Epik sites likewise suffered a similar fate.

      Thanks Bartholemy, I appreciate your advice. That being said I do think it’s only fair to give someone a chance and consider them innocent until proven guilty.

      I have heard from a number of people who are doing great with Epik and have been for years. I think it has a lot to do with how your build the site and if you use original content, etc.

      DevName is integrated with TextBroker so you can quickly build-up some great unique content. I think that people who use these tools to build real, usable sites, with good unique content can absolutely rank and make money.

      I am doing tests with both DevName and Epik and sharing these on my blog so definitely stay-tuned!

        “…it’s only fair to give someone a chance and consider them innocent until proven guilty.”

        Noted, Morgan, but the extra ordinary exuberance of your attention-grabbing headline, to wit – “DOMAIN DEVELOPERS REJOICE – DEVNAME IS HERE!” – struck me as substantially less measured than merely “…giving someone a chance” and “considering them innocent until proven guilty” …hence my cautionary counsel, all bearing in mind of course that a very substantial segment of your readership (and content) appears to be relatively new and inexperienced domainers (parenthetically, precisely the demographic that is typically most attracted — and vulnerable — to these types of “mass-development” services).

        Against that background, your further comments regarding the importance of unique content are very well taken.

        • Morgan Linton March 8, 2012, 12:37 pm

          Thanks Bartholemy, my headline really was meant to catch people’s attention as the #1 request I get now is people wanting to know how to develop their domains. It feels like adding a new solution to the mix can only be seen as a good thing until proven otherwise.

          That being said I’ve always been an incredible optimist so do appreciate your point of view and am looking forward to putting DevName to the test!
