Domain Movers highlights domain name transactions by companies around the world. These early discoveries often highlight new brands, services, products, domain upgrades and much more!

Goodsey.com has been acquired by 1-800-Flowers.com. It appears the domain only held a buy now of $590 by its past owner, who registered the domain name on August 31, 2017. CSC then registered the .net and .org domains after acquiring the .com about April 12, 2018.

Jaguars.com which is owned by the NFL, changed web hosts and moved from Rackspace to Akamai Technologies.

CrownPerth.com has been acquired from its past owners by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client.

ForSaleByOwner.com & SaleByOwner.com, which have both been owned by Tribune Publishing Company, LLC (Tronc) have transferred out of brand protection registrar MarkMonitor to GoDaddy.com under whois privacy. ForSaleByOwner.com is a developed website and SaleByOwner.com redirects to ForSaleByOwner.com. Tribune acquired the website in 2006 for an undisclosed amount. Did it sell is the question? Name servers did change at the time of the transfer, from TribPub.com to Amazon AWS and it’s on a dedicated server. SaleByOwner.com also changed name servers but houses 3 domains total: ByOwnerSales.com, iGotThisSale.com and SaleByOwner.com. All those domains transferred and are under whois privacy. It’s currently unknown but to note, the company does house over 300 domain names at GoDaddy and around 700 at MarkMonitor that are not under whois privacy.

DeRay.com has been acquired by a DeRay Mckesson from its past owners according to whois records. The domain held a $10,000 buy now at Afternic according to DomainTools screenshot history in 2017. The transaction was handled via Afternic Escrow.

Picnic.com has been sold by NameExperts.com who was brokering the domain name for a client. The domain moved to whois privacy at Network Solutions, so the buyers are unknown at this time. Joe Uddeme reported the sale on his LinkedIn page but did not provide any information with the sale.

Capital One has listed the premium generic domain name Bundle.com for sale through brand protection service MarkMonitor. You can visit the domain if you are interested or via Afternic as well with a $50K minimum offer amount.

Leitner S.p.a. has acquired Leitner.com out of Tucows Mailbank surname domain name portfolio for an undisclosed amount.

Ascential Group acquired LoveTheWork.com out of GoDaddy’s NameFind domain name investment portfolio for an undisclosed amount. If I had to guess, I’d say $4,800

Dotwhat ApS has acquired Snooper.com from its past owners, with the transaction taking place at Afternic.com for an undisclosed amount.

Enerdrive.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. Whois is generic but name servers have been set to Toyota, so they are the likely buyers. Toyota filed a trademark for Enerdrive in early 2018, so this further backs up that the buyers are Toyota. The domain name has been registered since 2004.

Anheuser-Busch InBev S.A. registered the domain name DrinkJumpstart.com adding to the 2,600 other domain names owned by the company.

8 Responses to Overstock.com Acquires ClubO.com + More Domain Movers
  1. Thanks for another extensive report Jamie, they are informative and motivational for those playing in the brandable space.

    CrownPerth.com would surely have been acquired by Crown Casinos / Crown Resorts. The CrownCasino.com domain is also held under CSC Corporate Domains.

    Also, they already operate the domain CrownPerth.com.au for their huge resort and gaming center there which looks like a significant billion dollar luxury complex.

  2. Picnic.com is perhaps bought by Picnic.nl, an online supermarket.

  3. Thank you Jamie for another eye opening discovery.

  4. Re: Goodsey.com — August 31, 2018 is a date that has yet to happen. Are you using your time machine again, Jamie?

    • That one was way out of whack! The seller REGISTERED the domain August 31, 2017. CSC acquired around April 12, 2018. Buyers were 1-800-Flowers.com. 🙂 Thanks for keeping me on my toes Logan.

  5. Rakaten.com I’d have to guess Rakuten picking up a typo
