History

CarDomain Network was founded in 1998 by Alex Algard and Simon Han and is headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The company bootstrapped in its early years and never took on outside funding. It is one of a few companies to emerge successfully out of the dot-com bubble as a thriving company.

The company started as SoundDomain.com, which featured a mobile electronics forum and community functionality allowing users to show off their car stereo installations. As the site matured, additional features were added and, eventually, the vehicle profiles were rebranded as CarDomain. Recently, CarDomain has added video upload and user-run groups.
