GamePass.com has transferred from GoDaddy under privacy to MarkMonitor using generic whois data. It is not clear if the domain name changed ownership but it like has. One potential buyer would be Microsoft, as there is a Xbox Game Pass. The NFL is another potential, as they offer a “Game Pass” to watch NFL games online.

Twitch Interactive, Inc. has taken ownership of MyEG.net, which was the domain name owned by Evil Geniuses, a professional gaming team. In 2016 it was announced that Twitch divested Evil Geniuses and Alliance. It is currently unknown why Twitch has taken ownership back, at least of one of its domains.

BooDo.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain name was listed for sale on BrandBucket and held an offering price of $5,855. To note, Badoo.stream was then registered on April 27, 2018 which may indicate that Boodo is a potential streaming service?

The domain had been used for the game Age Of Empires by Ensemble Studios Online as a community forum/support page. The domain is not resolving currently but it appears the domain may have changed ownership. Microsoft acquired Ensemble Studios in 2001 and operated it until 2009.

Bison.com has moved into Escrow via Escrow.com. The domain name had been owned by Telepathy, Inc. prior and is displaying a Coming Soon Page. Update: I did reaching out to Telepathy prior to publishing but did not hear back right away, prior to publishing. Upon confirmation, the domain name was licensed (lease to own), not sold. The licensee is unknown currently, so I will keep an eye on that.

“SpotLyte” is a term being registered in a fairly large amount at MarkMonitor by an unknown client. It would appear that they currently do not own Spotlyte.com.
