Automattic has acquired Lean Domain Search. Lean Domain Search will now be free to use and the website’s founder Matt Mazur will join WordPress as a developer. Automattic is the parent company of WordPress.com and WordPress.org. Mazur will work specifically on WordPress.com.
Mazur will work on making it easier for WordPress.com users to find and register domain names for their websites and blogs. Lean Domain Search will continue to operate independently.
“I?d like to extend a special thanks to my wife, my family and friends, the Orlando tech community, and Lean Domain Search?s users for their tireless support and feedback. Lean Domain Search wouldn?t be what it is without all of you,” said Mazur.
