Welcome! This is Domain Movers where we keep track of corporate domain name transactions and report the early findings to you. These transactions are often early indicators of domain name upgrades, new brands, products, services, advertising efforts and more.
As always, I couldn’t do the hours of daily research without the helpful tools from DomainTools.com and DomainIQ.com!
Here is a very small sampling of the latest corporate focused domain movements detected:
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. acquired BossFiles.com from its past owner, adding to the 5,600+ other domain names they own.

To note, the company already owns and uses Surface.com.
