Domain Movers highlights company focused domain name transactions. Here is a tiny sample of some domain names acquired and sold by companies around the world recently.

NAPCO Media has acquired BrandUnited.com at domain name aftermarket service Sedo.com for $7,000.

Human Inc. has acquired HumanSound.com with the transaction being handed at Escrow.com for an undisclosed amount.

Amazon has acquired security camera company Ring.com based on reports. To back this up, Amazon registered several similar domain names: Amazon-Ring.com, AmazonRing.net, AmazonRingApp.com, AmazonRingCam.com, AmazonRingCams.com, AmazonRingSecurity.com to mention a few. This tells me that Amazon is likely to keep the Ring brand name but likely adding Amazon to it, as Amazon Ring.

Rubbish.com heads to the UK and was acquired by Interactive Network Ltd out of GoDaddy’s NameFind investment domain name portfolio for an undisclosed amount. This was likely a solid five figure domain sale but GoDaddy doesn’t report it sales.

Marksmen acquired two, 4 letter domain names for clients. Dmax.com was acquired by Discovery Communications, LLC and Jull.com. Jull.com was likely acquired for vape brand JUUL.com, which Marksmen also helped them acquire (JUUL.com) recently.

Upline.com has been listed for sale by HP Inc., once again through DigitalDNA. HP has been listing several domains with the service and some domains have been sold so far.

UrgentCare.com moved from whois privacy, to Escrow.com and then out right away to HealthNetwork.com. It would appear the domain name may have sold dating back as far as 2014 and may have been in escrow, likely doing payments, for awhile. The current website has been up since at least 2015.

AskMother.com ($4,995) and CurlinMedical.com have both been acquired by currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains clients (likely different ones).

Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. has transferred SEI.com out of corporate brand protection registrar MarkMonitor to domain name registrar 1 API GmbH. SEI.com is the companies corporate website. It does appear the domain is still managed by band protection service, Brights.jp, which is part of GMO Brights Consulting.

MeatBox.com has been acquired from Name Administration Inc. by a currently unknown buyer. The domain is pending transfer but also using whois privacy. The buy now price was $44,200 at the time of the transaction.

BatteryRack.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client, for an undisclosed amount.

Jewelry.com moved from Verisign name servers over to Amazon dns and on a dedicated server. It also appears the company set up an SSL, which was done incorrectly and the website is not resolving due to the browser saying the connection is not secure. I see a fair amount of websites not resolving due to SSL errors, so the process to set it up must not be very easy. I contacted the company to inform them of the error.

City National Bank (cnb.com) has sold the premium 2 letter domain name DF.com according to whois records. The domain name has since transferred from Register.com to eName.com. City National Bank is a subsidiary of Royal Bank of Canada. I would expect this sale to be seven figures.

Cox Automotive (KBB, Autotrader.com etc) has acquired BetterCars.com out of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio for an undisclosed amount.

B2B Bank LTD (b2b-bank.com) were the buyers of Super.com, which sold for $1,200,000 at the NamesCon auction by NameJet/Right Of The Dot.

  1. Thank you Jamie,
    Wonder why Amazon keeps adding more ring registration when they already got the best name for that .NA must be doing at least half a million or close to a million every month from their domain sales .This is one of the reasons domain names must be gotten in every strong niche available for constant sales.

  2. Looks like Warren Buffett now owns Jewelry.com via Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary Richline. Wonder when it was acquired.
