There had been a bunch of talk about whether or not Namepros changed hands, a thread got going on Wednesday that got quite a few posts. Members were looking for an official response.
Well at 5:10 a.m. Eastern time Edward Zeiden, Senior Director, posted the following.
Over the last couple months, we’ve had a few members asking whether NamePros was recently purchased. Primarily, members have asked us about it through private messages. Since the question has grown in popularity, we’d like to respond in a public thread for anyone who is curious.
The anticlimactic answer is that NamePros has not changed ownership recently.
The last time NamePros was acquired was about 2 years ago by an investor in a private transaction. The investor values his privacy and wishes to remain anonymous, but I am always happy to provide assistance: contact me directly.
Here’s a look back at NamePros a month prior to the acquisition: NamePros in 2013.
A decade prior, in 2003, @RJ began creating this extraordinary community. Thanks to the efforts and contributions of RJ, Matt, skilled staff, generous moderators, and supportive members, NamePros has become a thriving community at the center of the domain industry. Following in these footsteps, our goals are to help unite and expand the domain industry by offering instrumental resources and services.
Today, NamePros is a large team of incredible people working on multiple large-scale projects. A couple of our larger projects have been in development for over a year now, and we look forward to sharing them with you soon!
