Domain Movers is a series on DotWeekly that keeps track of company related domain name transaction and reports these early findings to help other businesses grow and stay on top of what other brands and companies are doing!

Here is a small sampling of some of the activity detected by DotWeekly over the past 24 hours:

MANN+HUMMEL GMBH has acquired OurAir.com at domain name aftermarket service Sedo for $9,800 USD adding to the 200+ other domain names owned by the German company. The domain has been registered since 1999.

Fashionmix Ltd. of the UK, has acquired MustLike.com at Afternic for an undisclosed amount. The domain was using an Efty lander at the time, with a make offer option.

Remarkable.com has moved out of escrow at Escrow.com. The domain appears to have moved into escrow around June 14, 2017 and was acquired by reMarkable. The company offers a digital notepad for reading, writing and sketching. It retails for $599.

FashionCo.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain was for sale at the time and did have a for sale lander with a make offer via contact form.

HighMoral.com has also been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain has been registered since 2005 and was owned by BuyDomains prior. The buyer potentially is Tencent Holdings Limited, as a December 2017 article on DotWeekly highlighted the sale of HighMorale.com, which was acquired from BuyDomains also by Tencent. Whois has updated on that domain and displays High Morale Developments Limited out of Hong Kong.

Jasara.com has been also acquired by CSC for a currently unknown client, using generic whois data currently.

Lenovo Beijing Limited registered AirKoda.com and Air-Koda.com adding to the 500+ other domains owned by the company.

EMI Recorded Music NA were the buyers of BitchPower.com that was mentioned prior but the buyers were not known at the time.

The Procter & Gamble Company has moved Ivory.com to BigCommerce.com name servers and a “store” coming soon page now appears. P&G has used Ivory.com over the years, redirecting to its Facebook page, showing a brain “MRI” type image? and displaying some of its products in the late 2000’s. P&G is known for underusing its premium domain name assets they own, as displayed here on DotWeekly many times. For an example, several premium generic domain names sat on SedoParking name servers for 10 years. I highlighted this here, with Clean.com, Dry.com and more.

Thomsen Trampedach GmbH has acquired BrightLab.com with the help of BrandShelter from its past owners. The domain has been registered since 2004.

Tradition Senior Living of Dallas Texas has acquired TheTradition.com out of GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio. Based on the companies website, the majority of the companies locations are called The Tradition and then an added name for the specific location. The Tradition – Prestonwood or The Tradition – Lovers Lane etc.

GoDaddy sold about 35 domains for the day and a few of those are: EliteMan.com, ALittleBit.com, TourSource.com, VeniceIsland.com and Mondays.com. Mondays.com buyer is currently unknown due to whois privacy and the domain not resolving. daPulse Labs Ltd. recently rebranded as Monday.com and they are a GoDaddy client, so there is potential that they may have acquired it.

HPX.com sold at Sedo for $130,000 which appears to have been the Buy Now offering price on the domain, as an Afternic listing holds the same price. Although the domain name was under privacy at Uniregistry, the domain is listed for sale under FrankbdSchilling at Afternic. The domain transferred to GoDaddy at the time of the sale, under whois privacy, so the buyers are currently unknown. It appears Frank acquired the domain in August 2014.

Trustless.io sold at Sedo for $10,000. Interestingly, Trustless.com holds a $30,000 buy now price currently on the Uniregistry market. I checked and the same price appeared earlier this year. I personally would have purchased the .com and made payments if the funding wasn’t available! Seeing a matching .io sell for $10K will likely just increase the value of the premium .com.

FalconHeavy.com awaits a new buyer for only $1,795 and has been for sale for about 730 days after HugeDomains.com acquired the domain on the drop. I mention this after yesterday’s hugely successful launch by SpaceX and it’s Falcon Heavy rocket. IMO, the rocket itself is a brand name and one that could be easily marketed by SpaceX and Elon Musk. Anything that creates a history defining moment IMO deserves to be preserved and away to market this is via a direct channel on the exact match .com domain name!  The name Falcon Heavy becomes well known and is a gateway for SpaceX to easily direct people to information, products, services etc in direct regards to the Falcon Heavy. SpaceX has 2 different rockets & 1 spacecraft: Falcon 9, Falcon Heavy & Dragon. Considering that SpaceX is offering Falcon Heavy as a service, at $90M, I think the $1,795 is a wise investment to easily direct potential customers to learn more about it.

FN.com that I mentioned was PendingTransfer yesterday and potential sold, has done just that! The domain name was acquired by a Chinese registrant under whois privacy, at eName. The domain name was sold by Turner Broadcasting in a very likely 7 figure transaction.

  1. “HPX.com sold at Sedo for $130,000 which appears to have been the Buy Now offering price on the domain…”

    Frank must get special treatment at Sedo because Sedo has told me that it not longer allows BIN prices above $50,000.

    • Maybe the person you spoke with at Sedo was drunk? I see domains (Mug.com for an example) with a BIN over $1M and many, many more. Maybe it was tied into some other type service, similar to Afternic DLS Fast Transfer or something along those lines?

      • Nope, I tried to have them upload a spreadsheet of names and they rejected the entire spreadsheet because of some names priced above $50,000. I had to remove those names to get them to upload the spreadsheet. The uploading of spreadsheets used to be the only way to get names above $50,000 listed. She said the policy finally caught up to the spreadsheet uploading process in January.

  2. Here’s a recent deal: DIAMOND.com domain SOLD for 7 figures USD, buyer is Virgile Rostand, founder of CoinSquare.

  3. I disagree, trustless is almost for sure ICO company. And .io is hotter commodity in that space. So for 1/3 of a price, they got the brand they wanted. In the ico space .io is cool, .com is workhorse. Is .com better? sure, but not 3 times better for ico company.

    Trustless.io sold at Sedo for $10,000. Interestingly, Trustless.com holds a $30,000 buy now price currently on the Uniregistry market. I checked and the same price appeared earlier this year. I personally would have purchased the .com and made payments if the funding wasn’t available! Seeing a matching .io sell for $10K will likely just increase the value of the premium .com.
