Dominion is focused on growth across all areas of the business. In 2011 it acquired European site Allboats.com from BoHil Media, a division of Telegraaf Media Groep. It used the site to bolster its Boats.com business and brand. In efforts to expand its specialty vehicle operations, in 2010 Dominion acquired Ziios, a Web-based dealer management system for the powersports industry. Ziios' software allows dealers to manage their inventory, parts and accessories, service center, and accounting. Additional expansion in 2010 came from the introduction of new mobile websites (RoomSaver.com, GetAuto.com) and the launch of iPad applications (ForRent.com). And in marketing-related activities, in 2010 the company's BoatTrader.com launched targeted boat lead generator Locator Leads 2.0.
Dominion Enterprises was created in 2006, after Landmark Communicationsand Cox Enterprises dissolved their Trader Publishing joint venture. The companies decided to break up the Trader Publishing business and each retained the operations that fit best with their business strategy; Landmark retained certain real estate, employment, and recreational assets, and renamed the unit Dominion Enterprises. Cox kept the automotive publications and website AutoTrader.com and created a new unit called Cox Auto Trader. With the newspaper industry in dire straits, Landmark disposed several assets, selling The Weather Channel in 2008 and transferring its remaining holdings, which include Dominion, to an affiliate company, Landmark Media Enterprises. Other Landmark Media holdings include newspapers and TV stations.
