Automattic has gone and got itself a domain search service.
Lean Domain Search founder Matt Mazur has announced on the service’s blog the site has been acquired by Automattic.
Mazur will also join the WordPress.com parent company, working full-time on “making it even easier for WordPress.com users to find and register great domain names for their websites and blogs.”
The site, which allows users to find available domain names based on a keyword, was launched on Hacker News in January last year.
Mazur says Lean Domain Search will continue to run since the acquisition will be even be “completely free”.
