Embrand continues on its buying spree and acquired Fase.com out of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio for an undisclosed but likely five figure amount. Embrand were the buyers of Handle.com at Sedo recently for $95,080 USD.

MiltonGreen.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client from its past owners, for an undisclosed amount.
Phillips 66 Company registered 76Minutes.com and 76Minute.com adding to the 2,300+ other domain names owned by the company.
Tucows.com Inc. has sold Horst.com out of its RealNames/Mailbank domain name portfolio of surnames. The buyers appear to be Hagebaumarkt Moller & Forster (Moller & Forster GmbH & Co. KG) which appears to be a German furniture store. Horst is a male given name in Germany.
Amazon Inc. has launched a stand alone website on AmazonGames.com. Amazon redirected the domain name to Amazon prior but now highlights many of its games, gaming services, partners, game solutions and more. The technical name of the site/service is Amazon Game Studios. The company uses AmazonGames.com for the main domain name, they also own AmazonGame.com but redirect that domain to Amazon.com directly with game results. AmazonGameStudios.com is also owned by Amazon, and that domain reidrects to the sub-domain games.amazon.com which is actually what AmazonGames.com is. So maybe it’s not a stand alone website on AmazonGames.com and it’s just a clone of games.amazon.com?
