Domain Movers keeps track of company domain name transactions. These are often early discoveries of new brands, products, services, advertising efforts and more.
Not a huge list today after coming off a weekend but several hints and big names.
Target Brands Inc. has acquired TargetMarketplace.com. Lead IP Paralegal Jason Anderson from Farmington, MN is listed in whois records as of August 14, 2017 and appears to have purchased the domain name under his own personal name and gmail address.
On August 4, 2017 the following domain names were registered under generic whois data: Target-Market-Place.com, Target-Marketplace.com, TargetMarket-Place.com and TargetMarketplace.net were all registered at CSC Corporate Domains. TargetMarketplace.com was owned by YummyNames (Tucows) and was for sale for $3,900. wwtargetmarket.com, wwtargetmarketplace.com, wwwtargetmarket.com and wwwtargetmarketplace.com were also registered at the time.
TargetCares.com was grabbed on the drop by CSC Corporate Domains (likely via NameJet), also likely for Target Brands.
Amazon Technologies, Inc. registered AmazonEssential.com. This is likely related to an investment into Andy Rubin’s new Essential phone. Amazon also registered AmazonAWSMacie.com and AmazonMacie.com prior to announcing a new offering for AWS, called Macie.
J.S. Marcus has acquired AndStyle.com and .net from its past owners with the help of domain buying service Marksmen.
Agrosorsak d.o.o. has acquired TractorNet.com at domain name aftermarket service Afternic.com for an undisclosed amount. The domain has been registered since August 1997.
Netspend Corporation registered SummerOfReloads.com adding to the 400+ other domain names the company owns. The company offers prepaid cards and reloadable debit cards.
PWE.com has been acquired by EJEE Inc. from Telepathy, Inc. The company is located in Beijing, China.
BlackCreek.com has been acquired by Telepathy, Inc.
Tulip.com has moved into Escrow.com. The premium generic domain name was owned by Web X.0 Media LLC (Michael Cyger) and has been registered since August 1995. This appears to be a Domain Name Holding transaction, which doesn’t always mean a “sale” as a domain lease is always a potential. If payments are being made to acquire the domain, it would also go into domain name holding in an escrow account. It appears that Michael potentially purchased the domain for around $37,500 on Flippa in February 2015. I reached out to Michael for confirmation but have not heard back at time of posting.
Aluminati Network Group has acquired Aluminati.com from Name Administration Inc. for an undisclosed amount. The domain has been registered since 2003
Tatta.com has also been sold by Frank Schillings Name Administration Inc. This domain name held an offering price of $75,400 but the exact sales price is currently unknown, nor are the buyers.
CFB.com which I had mentioned on August 11 that the prior BB&T owned domain name transferred to GoDaddy out of CSC appears to have been acquired by a company called Capital For Business, that uses the acronym CFB.
General Mills Inc. registered the domain name CTCBites.com, which appears to likely related to Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bites that the company announced in July 2017.
PepsiCo, Inc. registered the domain name PepsiPickSix.com for a likely football related campaign.
Mondelez International, Inc. registered SnackMindful.com adding to the 3,000+ domains the company already owns.
ESPN, Inc. registered ShredHate.com adding to the 1,300+ domains they currently own.
