“We are delighted in rapid growth in the registries under our management” said Andy Churley, CMO of Famous Four Media, the registry management company for 16 new domain extensions. “The go-to-market approach FFM has adopted is clearly striking a chord with the public and to have reached 500,000 registrations in such a short time is a testament to the strong strategy and great staff at FFM.”

“A great part of the success comes down to the domain endings we manage.” continued Churley “People love .PARTY, .SCIENCE and .WEBCAM  in particular, these strings have a broad appeal and are words that work in many languages. We are just as excited about the domain endings we will be launching, in particular .DATE and .REVIEW, which we believe share a mass appeal. ”
