Welcome to Domain Movers, an exclusive series where DotWeekly focuses on corporate domain name transactions that often would go unreported other wise and shares the data with you. These are often very early discoveries:
Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts has registered the domain name MamaIsBoss.com for a likely advertising message to be used in a near future campaign.
GoDaddy has unloaded another 40+ 3 character domain names into the Chinese domain market, selling the large lot of domain names like 44P.com, 5CP.com, 6RT.com, 79P.com 35T.com and more. Whois records show the new owner as Dan Zhao.
Google registered several “Springboard” domain names like SpringboardRose.com, SpringboardLime.com, SpringboardCobalt.com and SpringboardEmerald.com
Google also appears to have acquired the domain name CapitalG.com and potentially sold BufferBox.com as that domain transfers out of MarkMonitor to Domain.com under the name Jay Shah.
Walmart has acquired the domain name HolidayBetter.com from HugeDomains.com. The domain name had an offering price of $1,795. This is not the first time Walmart has acquired a domain name with the term “Better” in it, so it appears they like the term. TechBetter.com is another one that I have noticed they acquired prior.
Habit.com has been acquired by a new company that is launching January 2017. Campbell Soup Company has heavily invested in the company and is founded by former founder of Plum Organics Neil Grimmer. The domain appears to have acquired in late 2015.
Twitter Inc. registered several “DNS” domain names like TwitterDNS.net, TwtrDNS.com/net and TwttrDNS.com/net.
InVivo Group has acquired AgTip.com from HugeDomains for about $2,095. The company appears to offer something related agriculture but the site is in French, so I can’t read it.
Coverdell & Company, Inc. has acquired CareFreeShopping.com from BuyDomains. The domain had an offering price of $4,888. The company offers end to end direct marketing services.
Whirlpool appears to have acquired the domain name Zera.com, which was owned by gaming company Nexon. Whirlpool filed a trademark for Zera in January 2014 and appears to be related to a composter of sorts.
