WordPress Origin Story

identityXperts began as an idea in 2013, while co-founder Pam Elcik worked for ITT Technical Institute. To solve business identity issues experienced by her students, she asked her husband, Dr. John Elcik, the Pragmatic Web Designer, to create websites for six skilled trades under the name identityXperts, a Florida tradename for Edulytics, LLC. The sites were built using a WordPress multisite environment, and services were sold as a subscription plan under the Xperts brand.

Today the company buys and sells domains for profit. And occasionally, if the project is interesting enough, we create websites. Our portfolio of premium domains can be reviewed at identityXperts.com. These include americanfootballs.com, droneshanger.com, gorjeo.com, halloweenspookmaster.com, and lighthousepolitics.com. Website projects have included beadednecklaces.com, mycousins.org, and princessofcrafts.com.
