Originally called Elliot’s Blog and established in 2007, DomainInvesting.com is published by Elliot J. Silver, an Internet entrepreneur and professional domain investor. Elliot has spoken on a number of conference panels and has been cited as a domain industry expert in a variety of publications. Elliot’s Blog rebranded to DomainInvesting.com in October of 2013. There are several domain investing experts who are contributing writers on DomainInvesting.com.
Elliot founded his first domain investment and monetization company, Top Notch Domains, LLC, in 2003, while in graduate school at New York University (MS in Direct and Interactive Marketing). The company is based in New Hampshire but operates in Massachusetts.
Shortly after earning his degree, Elliot went to work as a Project Manager at Wunderman, one of the largest direct marketing agencies in the world. Later, he was hired as a direct marketing Program Manager at AIG, where his focus was direct mail and telemarketing campaign management. After working in these corporate marketing jobs for four years, Elliot decided the time was right for him to focus entirely on his domain investment business in 2007.
Top Notch Domains, LLC currently owns a portfolio of descriptive domain names and websites, including DogWalker.com, DogGroomers.com, BrandManagement.com, Torah.com, RER.com, MKM.com, Drafting.com, this blog, and many other valuable domain name assets. You can also see a selection of sales and current projects on which the company is working.
In 2008, Elliot founded Silver Internet Ventures, LLC, an Internet media company whose developed web properties include Lowell.com, Dreidel.com, and TropicalBirds.com. In 2013, the company sold Burbank.com, a website it launched in 2008.
In 2008, Elliot Silver was honored with a Domainers Choice Award for ElliotsBlog.com, which was voted best Domain Blog, and a Name Intelligence Award for Best Domain Blog Community. In 2010, Elliot was honored with a TRAFFIC Award for Best Domain Blog. Since then, Elliot and the blog has been nominated for a number of awards.
Elliot is originally from Nashua, New Hampshire, but currently makes his home in the suburbs of Boston with his wife, daughter, and dog. He is an avid Red Sox and Patriots fan. He is a graduate of Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania and New York University.
