Welcome to Domain Movers. We focus on company related domain name transactions and report these very early findings to you. These often indicate new brands, future advertising efforts, domain name upgrades and more.
Here are the movements detected over the weekend (mainly Saturday, which are happenings from Friday):
Verizon has acquired the domain name BeVisible.com, adding to the 7,600+ domain names they already own.
DigitalDivide.com has been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client. The domain name was acquired via Afternic in late July 2017 when the domain was for sale using the Uniregistry system. The domain then transferred to Dynadot under whois privacy.
C.R. Bard, Inc. has acquired PureWick.com from its past owners.
Kraft Foods Group Brands LLC registered the domain name HeinzMayo.com, adding to the 1,900+ other domains the company already owns.
Comedy Central has acquired TheOpposition.com for a new show called The Opposition with Jordan Klepper. The domain was for sale using Uniregistry at the time. To note, on July 20, 2017 I mentioned many domains being registered in relation to Jordan Klepper and several of those domains hinted at The Opposition show. All the domains were registered by Viacom, which owns Comedy Central. The company does a great job owning and using premium, make sense domain names.
