Facebook Inc. has acquired the premium generic domain name GameRoom.com

Facebook Game Room

The domain name has been registered since 1998 and was owned by Julie Anderson of Fort Lauderdale, Florida according to whois records. The domain has had a lot of interest over at domain name aftermarket service Sedo, showing 113 offers have been made on it.

I was not able to find an offering price or sales price.

Facebook wasted no time with the new domain name purchase and has began forwarding the domain name to Facebook.com/gameroom

This is a great example of a company that understands the importance of securing a brand online and purchasing the premium domain name to go along with it!

DotWeekly did discover some early activity from Facebook relating to “Game Room” on September 20, 2016 when they registered several game room domains.

Facebook Inc. owns about 3,000 domain names.

Based on the Gameroom website, Facebook appears to directing this to PC gaming and states: “From shooters to strategy, builders to bingo, find your game in Gameroom, designed for PC gaming.”

  1. Great find Jamie thanks.

  2. How much did they buy it for?

    • I tried to find out that information but was unable to find the purchase price. I would guess that it was low six-figures. Some may say mid to high five-figures but based on the amount of bidding activity at Sedo tells me the vast amount of interest in the domain and the sellers held strong.
