MetArt said Domai.com is one of the industry's founding softcore sites, "and CCBill's first real client is truly an 'institution.'"
"It’s longevity and influence has helped define what it means to be an 'art nude' website," the company said in announcing the acquisition. "It’s ongoing success is a testament to the vision and perseverance of its founder Eolake Stobblehouse. While many other sites have stumbled with multiple changes and full scale re-works, Eolake as been adamant with his 'member first ' mentality and 'simple nudes' content. The continued strong results speak for themselves."
Eolake remarked, “It is a fine line. Maintaining the integrity of the site and its content, being honest and respectful to your members, while competing and growing in today’s more sophisticated and progressive economic climate. I believe strongly that MetArt is the only company with the sensibility and understanding to handle this correctly.
"It is difficult to let Domai go, but I know it is in great hands, and I look forward to my life’s next chapter, which includes a renewed focus on my art and writing.”
Jon Krogman, co-owner of MetArt, added, “We have a great deal of respect for Eolake, what he has accomplished in this industry, and the sites he has created. Our intention is to stay true to his vision, making gradual changes based on our knowledge of the softcore niche and the site's customer base. There is no rush.”
