Internet Sector/Venture Growth Strategist Deven Parekh

Competitively, successful venture capital firms believe that if you want to have true long term defensible traffic for your online business you may want to do it yourself.   Basically, you're the true owner of your own destiny and you can control your own traffic.  And if you don't and you're a category market that monetizes reasonably well, a speculator will do it and they'll drive traffic to your site but at the end of the day they control that traffic.  And if somebody else will pay them more for that traffic, you won't own it anymore.  One of the areas to really focus on is making certain that the traffic that a company has for their online business, whether they’re an e-commerce, a content company, or an Internet service that the traffic is defensible.  And domains is a part of that strategy.
