Highlights from Rightside Q4 investor call

The company got $7.8 million for losing new top level domain name auctions. In Q3 it reported $8.6 million from losing seven auctions. As of the end of the year, Rightside’s new TLDs had 150,000 registrations for $5 million in cash sales. At the end of Q3 it had about 80,000 for $2.5 million in sales. 15% of new registrations at Rightside’s retail registrar Name.com were new top level domain names, and these sell for about 3x .com prices. The company is targeting breakeven on an adjusted EBITDA basis for 2015. CEO Taryn Naidu says the company will try lots of marketing approaches for its new TLDs next year. It is getting some traction in industry publications for its legal domains and .vet. It is also partnering with associations that have members who are targets for Rightside’s vertical TLDs.
