Protrada CEO & Founder Troy Rushton to Join Trump, Robbins & Kiyosaki Live On Stage in San Jose, CA

Santa Monica, CA, Tuesday April 3rd 2012 – Protrada CEO and Founder Troy Rushton has been invited to join one-man-brand Donald Trump, Mr Motivation Anthony Robbins and Rich Dad creator Robert Kiyosaki at the National Achievers Congress 2012 in San Jose.

Troy will be headlining the domain name investing session of the three day conference starting April 10th and concluding April 12th to an audience of around 8,000.

This is the beginning of a program being rolled out by Protrada to take domain name investing to a new mass audience of qualified investors across the entire spectrum of asset classes from real estate to options trading.

The focus of Troy’s presentation will surround the myriad of benefits domain name trading offers investors; the ease of using Protrada as the primary platform for domain buying, selling, management and development as well as teaching the tactics and strategies employed by the most successful domain name traders. Troy will be presenting a program which has been a collaboration of many key influencers in the domaining space including; Morgan Linton (morganlinton.com), Adam Dicker (DNForum), Paul Nicks (Go Daddy), Braden Pollock (Legal Brand Marketing), Paul Goldstone (igoldrush.com), Shane Cultra (domainshane.com) and many more. They have all played an important role in providing content, ideas and commentary for this seminal presentation.

Introducing domaining to a new audience will greatly benefit the industry as a whole,”said Troy Rushton, CEO and founder of Protrada. “Every time I attend industry conferences, domainers tell me the greatest barrier to industry growth is a lack of liquidity which would be remedied by new investors. We have an opportunity to help solve that problem for the benefit of all stakeholders and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing at NAC 2012 in San Jose.”

A small number of tickets to the event are still available in both the General and VIP areas. Diamond Tickets are strictly limited as purchasers enjoy extraordinary benefits including lunch each day of the Congress with Messrs Trump, Robbins and Kiyosaki and a special “Power Talk” Q&A session with ‘The Donald’.

Winged Media Launches Game Changing Website Development Platform

Santa Monica, CA, Wednesday 7th March 2012 – Winged Media, a market leader in domain technology and internet platforms, today launched Devname.com, the next generation domain development platform for domain name investors.  The Devname platform has also been integrated into Winged Media’s premier platform for domain trading, Protrada.com.

The Devname platform solves one of the biggest issues facing domainers; developing cost effective, dynamic, revenue generating websites at scale.

From a domainers point of view Devname does all the hard work behind the scenes to produce quality, socially activated, content rich and revenue generating websites.

Recent announcements by Google about underdeveloped domains no longer being indexed have delivered a timely warning to domain developers. Devname websites deliver increased traffic and are search engine friendly to ensure continual ranking and higher valuation when a domain name owner wants to sell the asset.

Developing on Devname also gives domain name owners 100% from their own revenue feeds and the opportunity to earn additional revenue from advertising, product and lead generation feeds.

Winged Media CEO and Founder, Troy Rushton, “When we were looking for a scalable development platform for our own portfolio we researched the industry and looked at every solution available. It soon became clear that we’d have to build our own. Devname is the result and it’s way ahead of anything else out there. These websites are built using amazing technology in the backend to get clients’ domains developed, ranking and producing revenue quickly. ”

Using a revolutionary semantic engine, developed in-house at Winged Media, the Devname platform looks beyond the simple keyword of a domain to the intrinsic meaning of the domain name. This degree of analysis means domains are developed with more relevant content and revenue streams.

Rushton continued, “This technology is a game changer for the domaining industry. We’re very excited that Devname.com is now open for business both directly and via Protrada.com.”

Examples of the websites the Devname platform can produce are accessible at http://www.devname.com/examples.

We understand the strategies it takes to secure a domain, how to create traffic and monetise that site in the shortest possible timeframe.”

Rushton continued, “We are delighted with the investment from the Carnegie Fund and how this will further help us rollout the Protrada platform. Together we believe we can push the boundaries of the technology and entrepreneurial capabilities of the team, showcasing Winged Media’s IP in an easy-to-use domain trading service,” Rushton concluded.

“We are excited about our investment with Winged Media,” outlined Mark Carnegie, Principal, M.H. Carnegie & Co. “Domaining has increased its momentum throughout 2011, with activity levels outperforming the NASDAQ during key periods. With the introduction of the Winged Media IP into the domain trading experience, we believe that the sector will continue to develop and be acknowledged as an emerging asset class,” he said.
