Demand Media CEO and co-founder Richard Rosenblatt has resigned and will be replaced by co-founder Shawn Colo, the company has announced.

In a statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today, no reason was given for his departure.

Colo will take the CEO spot at the end of the month, while director James Quandt takes over as chairman immediately.

The company also said last night that it is still planning to spin off its domain name business, but “is currently in the process of evaluating the timing for completing the separation.”

This implies the plan, which was announced in February, has been delayed.

Demand Media’s domains business includes eNom, dozens of smaller registrars, and United TLD, which has applied for a portfolio of new gTLDs.
