plastics.com to sell polymers.com
Fitchburg, Mass. (PLWIRE) September 12, 2007 — Plastics.com, LLC. announced today the intent to sell its top level domain name polymers.com. Polymers.com is a powerful and long established domain name serving as a portal to the plastics industry for over ten years. Plastics.com LLC will continue to operate and serve the plastics community through its website located at www.plastics.com. Company officials stress that this sale does NOT impact the plastics.com website, which is a thriving, global industry portal representing all segments of the plastics industry.
This announcement is expected to be exciting news to interested parties with a truly unique opportunity. Polymers.com is one of the only top level generic domain name for the plastics industry and boasts world-wide recognition. Ownership of polymers.com provides an incredibly valuable asset to those in the plastics and polymers industries.
According to plastics.com and polymers.com founder Greg Koski, "plastics.com, llc is in the process of identifying potential parties interested in acquiring the polymers.com domain name. The domain name carries significant history as an active website serving the plastics industry since 1994, first as an award-winning and pioneering industry portal and then as part of the plastics.com website. For the last several years, this valuable domain name has been used to redirect traffic to the company‘s flagship plastics.com website. However, we recognize that polymers.com is an extremely valuable internet asset with considerable search engine rankings and impressive traffic statistics”. Koski further notes, "The site has been listed highly for many years by search engines, directories and other portals. As an example, Google 'polymers' and you'll see polymers.com is in the top five out of over thirty million results!"
The www.polymers.com website has now been setup to contain additional sales information and details of interest to potential buyers.
David Hahn, a principal with the company, adds that "The sale of short, generic domain names that are highly aligned to a specific industry, such as plastics and polymers, attract large amounts of consumer traffic without requiring large expenditures on marketing efforts".
