I ran into something interesting this morning while digging around. According to whois records, Google Inc. has just taken ownership of the domain name WriteOnGlass.com . Big deal right?

Well, the past owner of the domain name is where things get interesting. Border Stylo, LLC owned the domain name and they also are the company that opposed Google’s trademark filing for “glass” back in April 2014.

The power of a name!

Domain names are playing a part in the Washington Redskins naming controversy and things appear to be heating up once again with the NFL season just around the corner.

In fact, on June 30, 2014 the domain name RedskinsFacts.com was registered at Network Solutions under whois privacy and a very nice looking website was launched recently on the domain name. I’m not sure who is really behind the website but it does state “Sponsored by: Redskins Alumni”  directly on the website.… Read the rest

Here is the latest company domain movers with new registrations and domain name purchases by large companies. Several interesting stories along with some of these domains today, so enjoy.

Penguin Books Limited

Purchased the domain name HappyReader.com, likely from Sedo. The domain was registered 3/11/2014 and was likely backordered. The domain was parked with Sedo since it’s recent creation and
appears to have had a purchase price of $499? Not sure if that was what it sold for or not because sometimes “old” listings are not removed from some domain aftermarket services.… Read the rest

SOJCOM, LLC

Hand registered the domain name LustMustNeed.com yesterday using CSC Corporate Domains. This is interesting to me, because not much is known about SOJCOM from my understanding. I wrote about them appearing to have purchased LuxuaryWeddings.com here  and “Charley” commented that SOJCOM, LLC was a private domain investor. They could be, but are likely a large company.

So I wanted to find out more about this SOJCOM, LLC so I did some digging this morning and here is what I found out.… Read the rest

Back in 2011, I think that was around when Epik.com announced it’s dropcatching service, I had purchased one credit for $59 to see how well the service worked.

I have attempted 12 different times to use my backorder credit, that you must pay for in advance before even catching the domain. (dumb, I know)

Not knowing how “good” the service would be at grabbing expired domain names, my first backorder was for the expired domain: Frap.com . I placed the order on 12/13/2011 and the domain dropped on 12/16/2011.… Read the rest

Welcome to the latest company domain movers which I like to call DotWeekly Discoveries. This series is always interesting to see what large companies are buying and registering domain names. I try to include some information related to the purchase and or registration of domains when I can find it, so enjoy!

Amazon Inc.m

Registered AmazonLocalMerchant.com, AmazonLocalMerchants.com and the double hyphen versions of both domains. I really do not understand why these companies think they need to register
these double and sometimes triple hyphen domains like this.… Read the rest
