Founded in 1997, Trellian was an early pioneer in the development of domain name portfolio management tools. Initially, these tools were designed to save time, reduce costs, and improve the performance of Trellian’s large owned and operated portfolio.
Then in 2008, David used his extensive domaining experience and insights to convert these portfolio management tools into a suite of products and services under the Above.com brand name. Today, Above.com offers domain investors a wide range of powerful, free tools and services via its Monetization AutoPilot platform, Registrar, Marketplace, and Brokerage services.
Soon after Above.com was launched in 2009, David was instrumental in launching the Trellian Direct Search Network, which pioneered the concept and technology that enabled premium advertisers to bid directly on domain traffic. This proprietary technology, together with a strong focus on quality, has helped Above.com’s AutoPilot clients get much higher RPMs for their domain traffic than by relying solely on parking.
David continues to be actively involved in helping top domain name investors leverage Above.com’s features and benefits to improve their bottom line. He is also driving Trellian’s growth through the formation of strategic partnerships and the launching of new business ventures. David has a Bachelor’s degree in Business (Marketing, Management, Accounting and Law) from Monash University, Australia. He works out of Trellian’s Melbourne, Australia office. Trellian also has offices in Los Angeles, California and India.
