Domain Movers is an exclusive series by DotWeekly that focuses on corporate domain name transactions. These are often very early detection’s and there is not always much information relating to the movements but the information is worth noting.
Here are the latest movements detected:
Emirates has acquired LinenCraft.com in a mid September 2016 transaction when the domain switched to generic MarkMonitor whois data but now reveals Emirates as the owners. The domain was for sale using Afternic.
EYGN Limited acquired GigNow.com from HugeDomains with the help of SafeNames. The domain had an offering price of $1,795
The Success Company has acquired GreatLiving.com out of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio for an undisclosed amount.
Brite.com appears to have been sold by Intervoice, LLC which is a subsidiary of Convergys according to whois records. The domain expired and went pending renewal at Network Solutions and was renewed by Intervoice according to whois records. Cedar Creek Cottage appears in whois on June 20, 2016 with the registrant email address of Brite-Day.com.
Cloud Commerce Inc. acquired its EMD CloudCommerce.com for $20,202 as reported in its SEC filing. The transaction took place in June 2015.

DnQueen.net reported that Girl.com has been sold. Whois changed about January 6, 2017 with the new owner displayed at Po-Chun Chen.
IBT Media Inc. registered 3 similar domain names and those included NewsweekCorp.com, NewsweekGroup.com and NewsweekMediaGroup.com
Tile Inc. has acquired SmartLocation.net with the help of Marksmen. In October 2016, Tile acquired SmartLocation.com also with the help of Marksmen. The company uses the domain name TheTileApp.com, which is in need of an upgrade IMO. The company is heavily referenced as “Tile” and Tile.com is owned by DigiMedia, so it can be acquired, it just comes down to price.
Nuo Therapeutics, Inc., a public company, has acquired Nuot.com via domain name aftermarket service Afternic for a currently undisclosed amount. Nuo is coming out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and was previously known as Cytomedix.
The J. M. Smucker Company acquired Big Heart Pet, Inc. in 2015 for $5.8 Billion and has taken ownership of BigHeart.com as part of the deal. The domain does not resolve and the main website for the company/brand is on BigHeartPet.com.
