- (1888PressRelease) September 14, 2010 - SEATTLE, WA - Epik.com, a leading domain name development company, has released a list of developed domain names to be auctioned off on September 16, at 1:30 pm at the Bell Harbor Conference Center Bay Auditorium in Seattle. The domain auction is part of the inaugural Epik.com Domain Developers Conference being held September 15 - 17. The live auction event is open to the public.
Poster.com is one of the highlighted website and domain names up for auction. Originally registered in 1998, Poster.com is an Internet shopping portal for people looking for affordable decorative wall art solutions for their home or office. The site is heavily trafficked by 'tweens, teenagers and college students who typically decorate their rooms with popular subjects ranging from movies to music to photography to fine art and more.
"Even in a down economy, the demand for affordable wall décor has remained steady. The unique combination of economical art with a large audience with access to disposable income makes Poster.com is an incredible investment opportunity," says Rob Monster, Chairman and CEO of Epik.com. "With millions of global monthly searches for terms relevant to posters and wall art, and the websites' 1st page ranking on the three largest search engines, companies such as Fathead.com, Zazzle.com, IcePoster.com, AllPosters.com, etc could increase their share of the market by owning this leading product portal," said Mr. Monster.
The most popular poster of all time featured Farrah Fawcett - the iconic beauty of a bygone era. In an economy that is increasingly digital, there has been the lingering question about whether posters as a category would survive as a category. The results are in, and the poster industry is alive and well with monthly search volumes of 16 million searches for poster-related information, and more than 800,000 for the exact term "poster". The acquirer of the Poster.com domain will be able to activate an unlimited number of subdomains, e.g. Movie.Poster.com, Band.Poster.com, MarilynMonroe.Poster.com, Personalized.Poster.com, etc. -- all at no additional cost.
"An increasing amount of posters are being printed on-demand through Vistaprint, PrintPlace.com, PosterBurner.com, CafePress.com and others, proving the business model and highlighting the shift towards on-demand print production through the Internet," says Mr. Monster. "This shift in the buying pattern creates a unique opportunity to build the pre-eminent online brand for Posters -- Poster.com is the logical choice," says Mr. Monster.
