Welcome! Here is the latest round of company domain movers that were registered, purchased or simply moving by large companies.
Here we go with the list:
NokiaWear.com, a domain I had discovered and mentioned in an earlier article, appears to be getting ready to be launched as a website, as domain name servers have been set to Amazon
hosting. This may be in connection to a new product launch.
Walgreens has went into heavy “defensive” domain registrations with the fact that they are looking into a tax inversion and moving headquarters to Europe and save about $4 Billion over the
next 4 years by moving out of the US. I’m sure they registered more domains but here is a good portion of the ones they registered.
CBS Studios Inc.
Acquired the domain name TrekFans.com in some fashion. (legally or financially). The domain was parked with Sedo.
Johnson & Johnson
Registered several domains lately relating to “crowd funding” but relating to health care. CrowdFundPublicHealth.com, CFPublicHealth.com were two registered.
Registered the domain name ScoreATrip.com likely for a promotion of some kind. The domain was registered before via GoDaddy, but expired on 8/22/2013.
esure Services Limited
Registered the domain name PinkZones.com
Registered the domain ThePrizm.com . Again, this was a GoDaddy prior registered domain. The domain expired 8/10/2013.
i2i Events Limited (eMap.com)
Registered the domain name WorldRetailSeries.com
Has acquired the domain name 2N2.com for an undisclosed sum, on or about 2/20/2014. They are forwarding the domain name to CelebrateMyDrive.com . There is the potential that State Farm has
also acquired the domain mDrive.com. The domain mDrive.com was owned by the same owner of MyDrive.com… so the mDrive purchase may have been a play to acquire the MyDrive.com domain and
it didn’t work? The owner of MyDrive.com is a big time domain investor and I think it’s Marta Mulder
Mike Mann (DomainMarket.com)
Sold the domain name StreamIt.com for $40,000 as reported on his Facebook page. I would think the domain would be used by some streaming service.
MarkMonitor acquired the domain name DivaShop.com for an undisclosed amount and undisclosed client at this time.
British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC.co.uk)
Registered the domain name CelebrityTumble.com. They also registered several similar domains like, TumbleLive.com, TumbleLiveTour.com and TumbleTheShow.com
Wirecard Technologies AG (WireCard.com)
Registered the domain name WireTri.com
The Capital Group Companies, Inc.
Registered several domain names and some of those include:
Very likely sold
TimeForCollege.com (about $3,388)
SweetheartDeals.com a domain which sold via Sedo, for $1,500 from what I can see, is having a business built around it. Sweetheart Deals LLC was created and the .com is behind it. I was a
bit surprised to see this domian sell for $1,500… thinking it would have sold for a fair amount higher than that, but BuyDomains owned it and had it listed for $2,188 buy it now from
what I can see. The domain sold in early 2014.
