Net income for the full year is now expected to be in the range of $ 4.3 to $ 4.9 million, well above the $ 2.7 million reported in fiscal 18, based on unaudited figures as of March 31.
The shares in DN8 initially rose by up to 50 percent in the morning trade to a 12-month high of 15 cents.
CEO Mark Evans said Dreamscape is well positioned to capitalize on continued expansion into online website domains.
Crazy Domains is an online site registrar that sells hundreds of domain names, including .sydney and .menu.
"With the potential to release the abridged .au domain registration in fiscal year 20, I believe we will continue to leverage our current momentum," Evans said.
He reiterated that past investment in infrastructure also provided a platform to keep costs low and maintain steady growth in the Southeast Asian markets.
Dreamscape said total domain bookings grew by around nine percent in the second half of fiscal 2019.
"The full benefit of the hard work of management will be evident in fiscal year 20," the company said.
