Trellian has announced a further expansion into the .au drop catch business with the acquisition of the drop catch platform DomainShield.com.au.
Having only a handful of auDA accredited registrars that are authorized to drop catch, the acquisition further strengthens Trellian’s February 2017 acquisition of Drop.com.au drop catch platform and registrar.
The two drop catching operations will gradually be consolidated under the Drop.com.au brand, taking the best parts from each platform, plus many other functions from the existing Above.com Domain Portfolio Manager and Marketplace.
David Warmuz, CEO of Trellian stated:
“After our drop.com.au acquisition we quickly realised that there was one key component missing: .au drop catch know how. We could learn and fine tune, but this would take months/years. Or we could partner with someone that obviously has the missing piece. So having someone like Anthony on board just made sense. I am eager to see what the future holds and I look forward to working with Anthony on reviving the drop.com.au drop catch platform.”
Anthony Peake, CEO of DomainShield.com.au stated:
“I am excited to be joining the team at Trellian and making the best drop catcher for .au domain names. Having Trellian’s resources behind me will be a huge help and I am especially thrilled to be working on Drop.com.au again. I love the brand and I still consider drop.com.au as my baby.”
