Company domain movers are domain name that were registered, purchased or simply moving by large companies. There can also be information relating to company purchases, new product releases, brand launches and more in these articles, which often can lead to you seeing the information first. With that being said, you can view all of these articles using the DotWeekly Discoveries category if this is your first time seeing this article.

Here we go:

DNStination Inc. (MarkMonitor)

Registered the domain name likely on behalf of a client. Although a four word domain name, it is catchy, makes sense and will be a nice tag line for a likely ad campaign.

Soft Card?

Another unknown MarkMonitor client and a large set of domains. A lot of “Soft Card” domains were registered, like,,,,,,,,,, plus more.

It is hard to tell if the domain is owned by the MarkMonitor Client, but the domain appears to have a fair amount of activity via whois records as of late. This is an
indication that something is happening with the domain name… like a transfer is taking place or somebody for some reason keeps doing whois searches for the domain.

PerkinElmer, Inc.

Very likely has acquired Airbase Systems Ltd, which was a start up. had some movement and something was up with the domain. From what I can tell, the domain was actually registered by a Erich Norris [email protected] in 2005 but the
domain moved to privacy protection and has remained this was since being registered. The domain moved from several registrars like Melbourne IT, to eNom and then to GoDaddy. had a website on it but the domain started forwarding to This Ā SEC filling shows Airbase Systems LTD as a subsidiary of PerkinElmer Inc.

The redirect got me looking into “Visa Checkout” as it was display upon the redirect. is another domain they revealed they own and a pretty large amount of “V Me” domains like,, . Visa does not own, and they used as the “main domain” for the V Me effort.
