Welcome to the latest round of Domain Movers which focuses on domain name transaction by companies.
This is just a very small example of some activity over the past 24 hours that was detected by DotWeekly. I’m still highly restricted due to some research tool limitation:
Ablic.com has been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client. The domain has been registered since 1997 and was owned by a Chinese registrant prior, with the transaction taking place about January 8, 2018.
Specifi.com has been restored by Citizens Bank after Network Solutions put a whois verification on it and took down the domain name that resolves to Citizens Bank and its SpeciFi Digital Advisor. I’d expect this domain to transfer into MarkMonitor soon. Also to note, I have seen many domains being taken down via Web.com controlled registrars for “verification”. 711.org is one example.
TK autoyard LLP has acquired its EMD Autoyard.com out of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio for an undisclosed amount.
Synergy Cinema has acquired VirtualEyes.com also out of GoDaddy’s NameFind domain portfolio for an undisclosed amount.
BodyFirm.com has been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client from Name Administration Inc. The domain name held a buy now of $29,900 at the time of the sale, but the exact sales price is unknown.
Infusion Software has acquired PeaChee.com from BuyDomains.com for $1,741.
Guthy-Renker LLC registered TryLights.com adding to the 2,200+ other domain names already owned by the company.
BeVisible.com has been acquired by a currently unknown company at MarkMonitor, who appear to be launching a new mobile service called Visible. It appears the companies name is Visible Service LLC, based in Lone Tree, CO. A registrant name of Heera Garia is listed in whois, who is also a director at Verizon. The business listing (linked above) also includes Mario Manniello, also tied to Verizon. Also Joseph Greco, tied to Verizon.
The tagline on the website states: Open your eyes to a new kind of mobile
D.me has been sold by MarkMonitor. I mentioned this domain being listed for sale on July 14, 2017 in this Domain Movers article. It was owned by AVOS Systems, Inc. No listing price was given for the domain.
Roger Price… the unknown. I have seen “Roger Price” a fair amount and have researched the name a fair amount. To note, I have been seeing a fair amount of domains lately move out of CSC Corporate Domains which were listed under “Roger Price” and transfer to NameBright under privacy protection. The domains are being listed for sale, commonly at lower prices. BuySkiWear.com is one example. DoubleTicket.com & BigSounds.com are 2 more examples. BigSounds.com digging way back to 2010 was a PendingRenewalDelete domain at NSI, then transferred to CSC under Roger Price / Water Spring House / Locks Ride and listed on Sedo.
Rise.com has transferred out of GoDaddy to Amazon’s registrar under privacy. At this time, it doesn’t appear the domain name has changed ownership… but with any transfer of registrar, there is that potential.
JB.com has transferred from Moniker to eName and likely sold. The domain name is showing domain name brokerage firm Guta.com in whois currently. The domain name was owned by Domain Capital prior.
