The #1 Automotive Video Sharing Site Successfully Re-Acquires Its Dot-Com Status

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) - StreetFire.com (www.streetfire.com), the go-to site for all car-related, user-provided video content, today announced it has finally re-acquired its dot-com status. For the past seven years, StreetFire with its 2 million monthly unique visitors has been forced to operate its widely popular web site as a dot-net site. 

Known as the "YouTube for Car Fanatics," StreetFire is the first and largest user-generated video sharing service that caters to car, truck and motorcycle enthusiasts. With a library consisting of over 1.8 million videos, StreetFire has attracted substantial attention from die-hard auto enthusiasts. The recent People's Choice video for Showoff of the Year collected over 1400 comments and over half-a-million hits. 

StreetFire has been growing at a rapid pace over the past year. In the last few months alone, visits to the site are up over 50 percent to reach 3.6 million and page views are up 38 percent.

"The strength of our auto enthusiast community is phenomenal and our consistent growth just reflects that passion," said Glenn Rogers, CEO, CarDomain Networks, which owns and operates StreetFire. "Obtaining StreetFire's dot-com reduces confusion for users who instinctively search for dot-coms, and then find themselves at an unrelated site. We want to make it as easy as possible for our fans to find StreetFire and enjoy the content and videos."
