HP Inc. has acquired the premium domain name Omen.com.
The domain name was owned by Betty Forsberg and The Charles Forsberg Testamentary Trust (Omen Technology Inc.) according to whois records.
A DomainTools screen shot history shows the domain held a MediaOptions landing page with a $250,000 asking price in 2016. In 2017, the domain simply held a “Domain Name is For Sale” message and a SafeNames.net email address and remained that way until May 2018, when the domain name transferred to brand protection registrar MarkMonitor and now displays HP Inc as the owners.
The domain name has been registered since November 1993.
HP offers a gaming computer line under the OMEN branding, so the domain name purchase will help promote those gaming computers, which the domain name is already redirecting to the OMEN line of computers.
The OMEN gaming computer line was announced in May 2016.
