    Hi Guys!

    Thanks for having me! Just a quick intro; I run a small web hosting outfit in Melbourne, though personally I've built up a small domain collection of my own over the years and am now starting to look at monetising some of these in the portfolio.

    Look forward to getting involved in the community!

    Hi Andrew - and welcome to DNT. It's good to have you here.

    Hope you can tell us a little more about yourself and your business - and your domains.

    Also, if you barrack for Collingwood, then I feel very sad for you. ;)

    Hey guys,

    Just to follow up, our active sites include www.brodband-hub.com.au and www.mymovingconnection.com. These two sites currently use affiliate marketing to generate their revenues. We're in the process of adding more sites as we go, particularly focused in the .au name space and have some domains in the portfolio we're looking to develop into revenue generating sites, or simply for the purpose of flipping them.

    Our hosting platform, Web3k (www.web3k.com.au) is in the process of receiving a facelift (new website, new pricing etc). We're probably a little behind in terms of pricing, especially on the domain name side when compared to others in the industry. We're not AuDA accredited at the moment, though we certainly have that firmly in our sights. Our target market is small businesses, and our focus moving forward will typically be packaged services for businesses starting out on the web.

    cheers,

    Andrew

    P.S; I'm a Hawks supporter, so more than happy to see the pies beaten ;)

    Your "broadband" link has a typo and this makes the link non-workable.

    Welcome to the forum:)

    Not a very good start is it? :)

    That should have been www.broadband-hub.com.au, though, as you did, I'm pretty sure most would have worked it out.

    cheers,

    Andrew
