I’m really excited to announce that on Monday I start work at 101Domain.com. I’ve done business with them since 2002 and from a registry perspective they’ve always been one of the most responsive registrars to work with. They want to grow and already have the most comprehensive offer of domain names in the world. They’ve worked hard at establishing great registry relations for many years. Now it’s time to really go to market and show the world what a great domain industry product set they’ve developed. I can’t wait to get started.
Since I’ve been asking others to print this, I thought I’d publish our official press release here as well. 🙂
For Immediate Release – 101Domain.com Hires Joe Alagna as VP, Channel Development
Carlsbad, CA — March 14, 2013 — 101Domain.com announced today, that Joe Alagna has joined the company as its Vice President of Channel Development.

Mr. Alagna points out, “101domain was one of my first resellers when I entered the domain name business. They’ve been steadfast about their growth and about participating in programs that brought success to both sides and to 101domain’s customers. I’m coming into this company knowing a good bit about their culture and knowing that we’re going to be a great fit for each other. 101domain is well positioned to take advantage of new gTLDs and is already a leader in international domain name registrations. They have the ability to assist clients in registering what will soon be over 3,000 domain name extensions around the world.
