History

DN Journal was founded on January 1, 2003 by Ron Jackson, who is its Chief Editor and President. Jackson worked in various positions at different television stations for 20 years. Mr. Jackson subsequently operated a record store business for 12 years. The store closed down because of dropping sales, as customers shifted en masse from buying at music stores to downloading music from the web. The idea to establish a trade magazine for the domain buying/selling/investing industry came to him in the year 2002, when he discovered that "...despite this being a business where tens of millions of dollars were changing hands annually..."; the industry had no mouthpiece of its own, which led to the coming into existence of the magazine.[1]

Ever since inception, the focus of the DN Journal magazine is on tracking and reporting the events of domain name sales taking place in the internet market, across all registries and geographies. The site publishes the year-to-date (YTD) sales of domains for every year on its site. [2]
