Welcome, this is Domain Movers and we focus on domain name transactions by companies around the world. These are often early indicators of new brands, rebrands, domain upgrades, new marketing efforts and much more.
Here is a very small sample of some domain name transactions detected by DotWeekly:
PartsMate.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain has been registered since November 2016. It appears the domain held a $1,295 buy now price via NameSilo.
Camping World has acquired CoverMate.com from Name Administration Inc. which has been registered since 2001. The domain name held a buy now of $54,600 at the time of the transaction but the exact sales price is unknown. Gander Mountain Direct, Inc. (owned by Camping World) acquired a trademark for Cover Mate from Overton’s Inc. The TM is for Storage bags for covers for boats and marine vehicles. There are also several more Cover Mate TM’s owned by the company for Tape,
To note, Covermate Products Inc. registered CoverMate.net in June 2017 and is redirecting that domain to CoverMate.tv which sells stretching food covers for bowls, plates etc. There trademark dates back to November 2007.
SometimesNakedIsBetter.com & .net have been registered by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client.
TakeCare.org has been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client via domain name aftermarket service Afternic.
Anheuser-Busch, LLC has acquired iLikeBeer.com with the help of The Treadstone Group, Inc. who often help corporate clients acquire and sell domain names.
Nebulizers.com has been sold by Name Administration Inc. to a currently unknown buyer, who is using a payment plan to acquire the domain.
CryptoWorld.com takes home $194,888 in a sale between Sedo/DomainMarket.com to a currently unknown buyer. The domain was brokered by Sedo (they had the buyer). Many lessons to be learned here, on a domain name that recently held a buy now of $29,888 and before that $9,888. Considering that Mike Mann owns over 260,000 domains, he stays on top of things (changing markets) and updates his prices all the time. June 2017 the domain held a buy now of the mentioned $29,888 and Crypto currency has continued to gain popularity. I’m not sure the exact date, but Mike jacked up the price on the domain. I mean JACKED UP, to $994,888. Did he get lucky? Sure, but you have to ask for a high price to even have a chance to sell a domain for a high price.
Duke Clinical Research Institute has acquired ResearchTogether.com at domain name aftermarket service Afternic for an undisclosed price. The domain transferred to Network Solutions, so it’s likely the domain was purchased via Afternic DLS on Network Solutions.
The Modern Group has acquired RancherSupply.com, also via Afternic for an undisclosed price. The company offers industrial equipment.
JA GROUP HOLDINGS LLC has acquired PorchPals.com also at Afternic. This domain was owned by BuyDomains.
Chalo.com appears to have been sold by Microsoft to Zophop Technologies Private Limited (now under whois privacy). Microsoft was redirecting the domain name to Xbox.com/halo prior and it is not clear currently what Zophop’s plans are for the domain name. Chalo.com is redirecting to Zophop.com currently.
