Demand Media Austin Office Tour

Add Your Comments


At HostingCon in Austin last month, the WHIR had the chance to tour the Demand Media office just off of trendy South Congress.

The space has a great history, and Demand Media has worked hard to preserve it. Decades ago, the office was owned and operated by Willie Nelson as the Austin Opry House, where some of the music legends including Dolly Parton and Stevie Ray Vaughn have performed.

Demand Media has been busy, with its recent acquisition of Name.com, the launch of Designs.com, and the opening of a new office in Dublin, Ireland, which Taryn Naidu, EVP, domain services at Demand Media talks about in the video.

With the release of the new gTLDs just around the corner, there is ample opportunity for web hosts to reach small and medium-sized businesses, which Chris Sheridan, VP, business development, eNom, and Dave Panos, EVP emerging markets, Demand Media, discuss in an interview.

It wouldn’t be a visit to Austin without some BBQ, and we caught a glimpse of the BBQ food truck that rolls up to the Demand Media office at lunchtime.

BBQ, music and new gTLDs? I can’t think of a more perfect way to represent our trip to Austin.
