Here are the latest domain movers detected by DotWeekly with a focus on corporate domain name transactions and general high value domain names. These are often early findings and not all details are known. I try my best to share the sales price when I can and provide as much details about each movement. Keep in mind I look at hundreds of thousands of domain movements a day and this is just a very small sampling of the daily activity.
DXC.com that I mentioned the other day had been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client, the domain name is now redirecting to DXC.technology, which has a coming soon page dated April 3, 2017. The domain is on NameServers of CSC.com, which is Computer Sciences Corporation. A bit more research reveals DXC Technology is the combined CSC and HPE Enterprise Services merger and the new name for the company.
Dxc.technology was registered January 2017, prior to acquiring the 3 letter .com, so which domain will end up being the main domain name used at launch? I’ll bet on DXC.com
MeetWalter.com has been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client.
Unilever registers the domain name GoodbyeSerious.com adding to its domain name portfolio of 7,700 domain names.
PrettyMuch.com has been acquired out of the NameFind portfolio by a currently unknown NetNames client.
The Capital Group Companies, Inc. has acquired EMD CapitalGroup.com, upgrading from the confusing CapGroup.com domain name. eNaming brokerage firm was offering the domain in June based on Screenshots.com
QIA.com which I mentioned sold via Afternic the other day to an unknown buyer, that buyer was domain investor Embrand / Michael Bilde.
Zome.com which was owned by Sprint Communications moved out of CSC Corporate domains and over to NameSilo and is now displaying a coming soon page for Zome | Smart Home Systems
Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. registered LeakHub.net, with LeakHub.com owned by HugeDomains and currently for sale for $2,395
Bauer Hockey, Inc. registered the domain name SportsFirstGroup.com adding to the 155 domain names they currently own.
SummerBay.com has been acquired out of the NameFind portfolio by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client.
PowerWindow.com has been acquired by PowerWindow.nl. The domain was owned by GoDaddy’s NameFind prior.
The Shade TTY Ltd. has acquired its EMD and acquired TheShade.com also out of the NameFind portfolio. GoDaddy also sold ERPSoftware.com (asking price was north of $15K), TheOutsiders.com and many more. In general, GoDaddy sells around 10 domains per day. I wish I could provide sales prices with these but GoDaddy does a pretty good job of hiding them and doesn’t report them. Most domains have an $x,xxx offering price at a minimum. I know domains that start with The+Keyword are all around $xx,xxx for an idea. So in general, most NameFind sales are at least $2,xxx-$xx,xxx range.
Chimp.com has moved into escrow via Escrow.com. The domain was owned by Chimp Ltd prior according to whois records.
Unios.com was recently sold and acquired by Premium Lighting, which is using PremiumLighting.com.au. The domain had a $50,000 offering price.
