Facebook Acquires React.com Domain Name


Yesterday I reported that Facebook acquired the premium domain name Groups.com and now they have acquired another premium domain name, React.com from its past owners.

React is a programming language used by Facebook and is a JavaScript library for user interfaces. Facebook has been using the domain name ReactJS.org for the project but I’d expect that to change to React.com in the near future. Currently, React.com is redirecting to Reactjs.org.

React.com Facebook Whois

How much? That always seems to be the burning question but the purchase price is unknown. Five-Six figures is a good bet.

React.com was owned by Novel Brands LTD of the UK prior and has been registered since November 22, 1994. I did report that React.com sold in December 2016 on Sedo for an undisclosed amount and Pilar BV appear to have been the buyers then. Novel Brands LTD appears in whois history records on April 27, 2018. The domain then moved to whois privacy on May 12, 2018 at GoDaddy, so there is the potential that is when Facebook acquired it.
