Fabulous Ownership Change

As I wrote on September 25th, Mike Robertson was “re-joining” Fabulous. The actual story behind this is contained in this press release (which had been embargoed until today).

Directnic, a provider of domain names and other Internet services, announces that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire domain name registrar Fabulous.com from Dark Blue Sea Pty. Limited. The transaction is expected to close later today.

“For years, Fabulous and Directnic have been two leading domain registrars each with their own market focus one serving businesses and the other serving domain investors. This acquisition provides a very complementary fit for each business.” said Rob Alfonso, Directnics’ Chief Operating Officer. “The acquisition keeps Fabulous customers well valued, well served and creates tremendous opportunities for each business through efficiency and scale.”

Mike Robertson, Directnics’ Director of Business Development said “I look forward to being part of the Fabulous.com team again. I dedicated close to 9 years growing the Fabulous brand, a brand I still love and am excited to develop further. We have some great things planned for the future. Most of all we are committed to providing our clients with the best service and tools, to ensure the success of their domain name business.”

Best Wishes

As a long standing loyal customer of Fabulous, I know am not alone in hoping that this ownership and management change will bring about a return to former glory days.

Without going into details, Fabulous has become a “bit tired” in recent times. This acquisition (and Mike’s involvement) should see some much needed rejuvenation.

One immediate problem they need to deal with is that there has been no parking income reported for the past few days. I’m sure this is just a transitional glitch.

    Parking stats should now be up-to-date in Fabulous accounts. I apologize for any inconvenience this delay may have caused.
