Here is a rare Sunday addition of DotWeekly Domain Discoveries from large companies that have purchased or registered domain names. I rarely can dig up enough information to do a weekend article like this and I was able to dig enough information for both Saturday and today Sunday!

Here we go with today’s domain movers that I was able to dig up today:

Skrill Limited

Hand registered a couple domain names that included CashOnBoard.com and SkrillPay.com . Skrill was once MoneyBookers but started a rebrand in 2011 to Skrill.… Read the rest

TheDomains.com had reported the other day that Mobile.co was saved in a UDRP and now Chadi Ghaith reported on his Facebook page that he has sold the Mobile.co domain name for $238,000 .

mobile-co

I asked if the UDRP filer Inter123 Corporation was the buyer but have not heard back yet from Chadi.

Current whois records for Mobile.co are listed as:

Lawrence Darwish of Urbbana and the site Urbbana.com.auRead the rest

Here is another round of domain names I had discovered that were recently registered or purchased by large companies.  Most of these domain names will likely be used in the very near future and often relate to some sort of advertising campaign.

Dr. Pepper/Seven Up, Inc.

Hand registered the domain name TailgateTeamUp.com! It’s almost football season, so this will likely be used in some way with the upcoming NFL season.

AstraZeneca AB

Hand registered the domain name CongressHighlights.com to add to their 6,500 + other domain names.… Read the rest

Whois is an extremely useful tool and is provided in various forms from a lot of different services. Each service offers a variety of information with a whois query, but just keep in mind that the data you are seeing is not always “real time”!

This can be very frustrating and the source to see the most accurate data is directly from the registry of the extension (TLD).

Real life example

The domain name CIN.com had recently sold and I stopped in at the ever popular DomainTools.com whois and this is what the data shows:cin-dt

This is a “partial screenshot” as the registrants full details were listed below the above data but you can see the whois update as today.… Read the rest

Here is another round of my DotWeekly Domain Discoveries of newly registered and acquired domain names by large companies. Not the biggest or most interesting list today, but still good and worth a look! Sometimes for me, it gets frustrating because I do the same amount of “digging” to discover these and sometimes there just isn’t much. Still a fair amount of data that likely would not have been seen otherwise or until a national campaign of some sort brought it to your attention.… Read the rest

I happened to kind of stumble upon some potential “brand names” of the Keurig Green Mountain Inc. future products with its upcoming “Cold Pods” that will deliver at home “soda” like Coca-Cola for an example. Yes, similar to SodaStream but very much like the super popular hot beverage machine and the K-Cups.

A little back story from what I found doing a little searching as this machine was news to me, this morning.

Coke announced a strategic collaboration with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc.… Read the rest
