About

Richard Schreier is an eight year veteran of the domain industry and is currently CEO of Pool.com, a premier domain acquisition and auction service focused on "first-to-market" domain names. Pool.com has been instrumental in helping organizations like DotASIA, .CO Internet and ICM Registry (.XXX) monetize their premium Sunrise and Landrush names at launch.

Pool.com was launched in 2003 as part of the Momentous.ca family of online enterprises, which includes registrars such as NameScout.com and Internic.ca, as well as Canada's largest online DVD rental service, Zip.ca.

Pool.com enables multiple customers to backorder domain names and participate in online auctions for a chance to obtain the domain. It is a leader in domain name acquisition and secondary domain sales, with a comprehensive set of acquisition, direct and auction sales, domain security and DNS management tools. With a specific focus on partnering with new gTLD operators, Pool.com offers a unique solution to help early monetization of a new gTLD through Sunrise and Landrush.
