RabbitsReviews Picks Up 3 .XXX Cam-Related Domains
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — RabbitsReviews.com has picked up three .xxx websites — LiveCams.xxx, AmateurCams.xxx. and ShemaleCams.xxx.
The $88,000 deal for the three premium .xxx domain, according to ICM Registry, is just the latest high-profile announcement for the .xxx operator, which has seen keen interest as of late with adult webcam-related names.
"We have had a rush of interest in names since the Sex.xxx announcement and hope to report some more five- and six-figure sales soon," ICM Registry CEO Stuart Lawley told XBIZ. "The amount of cam-related names sold from the list of generally available names has rocketed in last few days also. Cam names seem to be the thing right now. "
The Sex.xxx domain recently was acquired by Barron Innovations, the operator of PussyCash.com, WebcamWiz.com and ImLive.com as part of a $5 million, multiyear deal, which also included more than 40 other premium domains, including Cam.xxx, Phone.xxx and Black.xxx, as well as Web.xxx, Market.xxx, Mate.xxx and Education.xxx.
In a breakdown of pricing, RabbitsReview acquired LiveCams.xxx for $60,000, AmateurCams.xxx for $17,000 and ShemaleCams.xxx for $11,000.
Montreal-based RabbitsReviews ranks sites by niche, based on nine criteria, including the number of pictures and movies, content quality and its originality, frequency of updates, pricing, whether content is available for download, ease of navigation and overall design and impression of the site. The company and its team of 20 has reviewed 10,000 adult sites since 2003.
RabbitsReviews also holds the annual RISE (Rabbits Innovation and Site Excellence) Awards, honoring the top adult sites.
Owner Mantas M, aka rabbit, told XBIZ on Wednesday that the .xxx acquisitions represents the company's initiative to expand its adult offerings, particularly white-label products.
"Acquiring these premium cam domains is part of our ongoing strategy to diversify our revenue stream through our various cam projects," Mantas M said. "We’ve had great success promoting our white label rabbitscams.com; we run a cam community on ReviewMyCam.com and are gearing up to relaunch TweetMyCam.com.
"The new acquisitions will be added to our ever increasing white label portfolio."
