There is a useful, if somewhat breathless, article in the current DN Journal on the origins and growth of iREIT, a consolidator/aggregator in the domaining business. As the piece points out, just eighteen months after lauching the company controls 400,000 domains that receive around 50m visitors a month. The granny goto business is interesting, but massive domainers like this are in a very precarious balance with Google and ad networks.
