Welcome! This is Domain Movers. We keep track of corporate domain name transactions and report the findings to you. This is just a very small sampling of transactions / movements in the corporate world involving domain names and we feels it’s very important to highlight these.
Here we go:
Solcon Internetdiensten N.V. has acquired Action.com. I had mentioned just the other day that there was potential that the domain may have sold, and now the domain was loaded onto Solcon.nl name servers and is resolving. Solcon is a telecommunications company in the Netherlands. The domain was briefly resolving to a Sedo brokerage page and was owned by a company called T101 Limited of the UK prior. Action.com sold for $270,000 in January 2011. also at Sedo.
Revelers.com has been acquired by Douglas Booth Architects Inc. of San Francisco, CA. The domain name was part of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio prior. The last time I checked this domain, it held a $12,000 purchase price. GoDaddy also owns the singular version, Reveler.com and that holds a $35K offering price.
GoDaddy also sold TheInside.com, which held a $16,000 offering price but the buyers are currently unknown due to whois privacy.
Olympus Corporation of the Americas Inc. acquired TrueToLife.com, also from GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio.
Slando.com which dropped in February 2017 and grabbed by DropCatch, appears to have been grabbed for CSC Corporate Domains or potentially won in a drop auction. The domain moved to privacy after being caught and has now transferred into CSC. Slando.net and .org looked to have dropped on March 18, 2017 and both grabbed by CSC as well. OLX Global B.V. (Naspers.com) owns Slando.info and is a CSC client, so these may be connected. Slando.info has been registered since 2006.
Rebellion Developments Ltd. acquired RebellionProductions.com and MegaCityOne.com. The former owners of MegaCityOne.com was a comic book store and have moved to MegaCity.one a new gTLD. Both domain names were acquired for an upcoming TV show Judge Dredd. Hat tip to AssetDigital.com for the details.
