Warner Music Group Acquires Playlists.net

If you’re a Spotify fan then there’s a good chance you know about Playlists.net, if not think of it as one of the top places to share Spotify playlists. The company was originally called ShareMyPlaylists.com but they choose to shorten the name and rebrand to Playlists.net. The company has currently raised a bit under $1M and is seeing 1M users/month and over 1 billion Spotify feeds a year.

Terms of the deal were undisclosed but given the level of traction and active users that Playlists.net had I can imagine the founders are pretty happy with the deal. Domain Shane did a great post about .NET domains, this is a solid example of how this rebranding can work for a company looking for a short and memorable domain. Congrats to the team over at Playlists.net, looking forward to seeing where Warner can take it from here.

    It doesn’t matter what the TLD is, the person who makes the financial decisions on domain acquisitions matters. BTW Germans love .net more than .com.

    @Acro – good point and agreed! It all comes down to people at the end of the day, everyone does have their own bias and in Germany I think they’d rather have .DE than .NET or .COM right?

    As someone living in Germany, Germans only care about .de , .com certainly isn’t “king” here. As for Germans preferring .net to .com . Incorrect.
