Domain Movers:, + More

Today’s Domain Movers is stacked with premium domain names and I think shows the upward trend of companies “getting it” and launching with premium domain names! Some are showing improvements by acquiring EMD’s and much more in today’s series. Enjoy!

Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. registered the domain name and interestingly, power tool company Festool USA owns the domain name since around March 2012.  DeWalt offers a tool storage system under the ToughSystem name and have a trademark on ToughSystem since 2011.

Flextronics International USA, Inc. has acquired from for an undisclosed amount. It currently does not appear they own the .com. has been sold by Tucows and the buyers appear (whois under privacy) to be in a nice EMD domain name upgrade for the company that was in YC’s 2016 startup class that offers sofas. is now redirecting to Burrow was founded in April 2016 and as of August had about $120K in funding according to Crunchbase.

KAMB GmbH & Co KG has acquired its EMD and purchased at Afternic from its past owner who actually acquired the domain in March 2016 after it expired and went to auction at NameJet and sold for $1,900. The sales price to Kamb GmbH is unknown.

Currently unknown MarkMonitor clients registered the domain names &

Rakuten, Inc. registered several “SEC” related domain names like, and

Digital Virgo Entertainment registered the domain name

Facebook Inc. registered the domain names and

Virgin Enterprises Limited registered the domain name Interestingly, the domain name was owned by Sprint Communications Company L.P. prior and they allowed the domain to expire in early 2016.

The Coca-Cola Company has acquired the domain name, which has been registered since 1998 and was owned by a Jason Dubrow for the Woah Internet Corporation. I did see a little chatter of Coca Cola filing a trademark for Coca Cola Woah, “Where Only Awesome Happens”. The trademark is a EUIOP trademark filed on August 15, 2015 with the image:

St. Joseph Health System appears to have acquired the domain name from MarkMonitor (likely from a client?). The domain was owned by Datu Enterprises (2014) via GoDaddy, then owned by a Flora Wong (early 2015) at eName, then went into privacy at Dynadot (July 2015), then transferred to MarkMonitor in late 2015 under DNStination Inc. and remained that way until transferring out of MarkMonitor to Network Solutions under St. Joseph Health Systems. The domain has been registered since 1996.

eBay Enterprise merged with Innotrac and became Radial, Inc. Radial was announced on April 19, 2016 and valued at $1B. The new company, Radial, Inc. has acquired

The domain was owned by Global Sports, Inc. up until about the end of February 2016 and then went into privacy protection at Network Solutions, remaining under privacy until about late September 2016 or early October 2016 when whois records starting displaying Radial Inc.

Amazon Technologies, Inc. registered the domain name, just not sure why.

Related, Amazon announced a new in-house brand of men’s dress shirts called Buttoned Down and appears to have acquired the EMD from BuyDomains but hasn’t done anything with it? (redirect it) Mike Mann owns the singular (offered for $54K). Not sure I love the brand name really, because it’s limiting, considering Amazon has openly mentioned they may offer dress pants, sweaters etc. and that doesn’t fit in general like a buttoned down shirt does with the brand name. Currently Amazon promoted the new shirts (via press release) using . Another “odd” and not so common move by Amazon, they didn’t register (don’t register it), which is something they almost always do! I did inform MarkMonitor about this.

Humbly, LLC has acquired its EMD .com from Telepathy, Inc. by acquiring for an undisclosed amount. The company was using the domain hack prior and is behind the projects of, and to mention a few that domain investors may be aware of. has been acquired by a yet to launch, new car service. The transaction took place around March 2016. The domain name was owned by L.P. prior. The website states: “Get ready to re-think the way you buy, drive and own a car”

Google Inc. has acquired which was under privacy at Uniregistry for an undisclosed amount. The domain has transferred into brand protection service MarkMonitor and currently doesn’t resolve yet.

    1. @R P,
      Thanks for pointing that out. I needed to dig deeper into whois records then 🙂 Robert Alder owned it for many years and then DNS changed to a around 11/25/2014 (they moved from the UK to Australia) (INTERMINGLE.COM.AU) which housed a motorcycle type website. holds the same DNS currently and reg’ed in Jan 29, 2016. That website states on this page “The old URL has been relocated to, so don’t forget to save it in your address book. The old site has been passed on to a new owner, so you can now contact us via email, or call us in the beautiful Margaret River Region of SW Australia” so it clears up THEY (Robert Alder/Radial Flotec) were the sellers around 2/22/2016 when Global Sports Inc appears in whois. (a frame design backs up Robert Alder on the current website with past whois records)
