The average user might not find Added Domains terribly useful, but investors on the other hand might. Added Domains was created to track the number of domains registered and quarterly renewal rate in the VeriSign domain name base. Added Domains allows users to see newly added URLs and find out which may have dropped from the system. This allows the user to get a daily update on the number of registrations and renewals. Added Domain users can track the quantity of added .com and .net domains daily and view estimated and updated renewal rates just as frequently. The site also includes a disclaimer that they are not partnered with or a part of VeriSign, but uses VeriSign because the organization is the official administrator of all .net and .com domain names.
Added Domains was created by Aeneas Industries, LLC in 2010. The site was intended to help investors get a better glimpse into how many domain names are added or renewed daily. The service is simple, but can help investors gather insight into the daily ebb and flow of the market.
The main purpose of Added Domains makes it unique. Users can see recently added domains or look for those that have renewed. The design of the site is another positive characteristic that makes it stand out. A new user might be a little confused by the ever changing wall of colorful URLs scrawled across the Added Domains homepage. Investors however can gather information here and possibly make decisions about where they put their money.
The look of Added Domains is quite unique to say the least. The design is very eye-catching, although it might baffle a newcomer who has no idea what the site is or what it can do. As soon as a newcomer arrives, they are provided with a simple search and a white page. The site uses an attractive hand writing style font with various colors to add a little life to the page. After searching with a keyword, the user is presented with an ever changing list of recently added URLs that span the entire page.
Added Domains is a monitoring service intended to assist investors. It is not really intended for the average user. Anyone can visit the site and perform a search without logging in. There is no member account. In reality, Added Domains doesn’t offer any functions that would require a user to log in or provide account information.
There is no charge for using Added Domains. Anyone can visit the site and perform a search for nothing. That being said, the homepage does mention that a “for pay” version of the site is available and offers more up to date results. No registration form is present so the user will have to contact the company to request access to the premium version.
Added Domains is intended for one group of users: VeriSign investors. Anyone else would find little to do on the site. It may be interesting to see what URLs the application comes up with when performing a search, however beyond that there is little else for anyone who isn’t an investor.
