FRIDAY,29 May 2015 The Domains
According to the news from Domain.cn on May 29th,Domain Movers consistently delivers unique domain name data two times a week here on TheDomains, which contains recently registered, acquired and simply moving domain name from some of the largest companies around the world.
Enjoy the recent domain movements that I have detected based on whois records and other sources:
Daniel J. Edelman, Inc. (PR firm) has registered the domain name PaypalReady.com . This was a little odd to me as Paypal almost always registers its own domain names but eBay and Paypal are separating companies and they may have hired Edelman to help in the process.
eLance/oDesk which had recently rebranded to Upwork, which I covered in an earlier article with them acquiring Upwork.com, have now secured the plural domain name Upworks.com. That domain was registered in 2008 and was owned by a “Modern Outlook S/B” according to whois records.
Johnson Controls Technology Company registered the domain names HvacNavigator.com and SelectionNavigator.com
Fluor Enterprises Inc. has acquired the domain name Flior.com . Based on whois records, it appears the domain reached expiration and CSC Corporate Domains secured the domain during an expired auction. The company uses Fluor.com as its main domain name.
AUSTRALIAN HEALTH & NUTRITION ASSOCIATION LIMITED has acquired the domain name Wholicious.com from ComDots.com. The domain name was registered November 16, 2005 and had a make offer listing with the minimum offer at $999.
GoDaddy has sold the domain name VirtualAds.com from its Marchex portfolio. They have also sold the domain name MostExpensive.com.
Nokia Navteq (Here.com) acquired Reach Unlimited Corporation in December 2010 and has now just taken control over the main domain name, Trapster.com according to whois records. The domain name no longer resolves.
Google Inc. has registered the domain name GoogleLifeSciences.com . There is “potential” that Google may have acquired the domain name LifeSciences.com as that domain name was owned by Telepathy Inc. up until August 9, 2014 when the domain went into whois privacy at GoDaddy.
Shutterstock, Inc. has registered the domain name HighResVideos.com, which had recently expired.
PharmIt.com has been acquired by a currently unknown MarkMonitor client. The domain was owned by Domain Dakini, Inc. and has been registered since December 3, 2004.
Tumblr, Inc. has registered the domain name PostItFwd.com. To note, I have seen 3M actively protects its Post It trademark…. but on the flip side, BuyDomains owns PostItForward.com and has it listed for sale for $5,788.
Build-A-Bear Workshop has registered the domain names HoneyGirls.org and HoneyGirls.info . They do not currently own the .com or .net domains.
Penske Automotive Group acquired the domain name PremierTruck.com about December 5, 2014 from WebContents, Inc. . A “Premier Truck Sales, Inc” owns PremierTruck.net and doesn’t appear to be associated with Penske. Penske System, Inc. registered PremierTruck.org and the .info .
The plural domain PremierTrucks.com was also acquired by Penske about February 7, 2015 from BuyDomains.com. They have also registered the domain PremierTruckGroup.org and currently do not own the .com as another “Premier Truck” owns that domain.
Dr. Pepper/Seven Up, Inc. registered the domain names Sell7Up.com, SellDps.com, SellDpsg.com and SellSnapple.com.
SummerOn.com has been acquired by secret domain buying service The Treadstone Group Inc. for a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain was registered January 25, 2014 at GoDaddy.
TwoZero.com has been acquired from a Jeremy Baxter, also for a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain has been registered since August 19, 2002.
WellbeingConnect.com has been acquired from BuyDomains.com, also for a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain was registered on April 21, 2014.
Levlad, LLC used a UDRP on the domain name NaturesGate.com from a Port Media Holdings LTD. The law firm Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear, LLP was used to secure the domain name. The domain was using Hit Farm parking (which is closed) and was listed for sale at Sedo. The UDRP was filed on May 12, 2015 with a status of “Withdrawn”.
Levlad, LLC filed for a trademark for Nature’s Gate on March 15, 1979 and there was a opposition in June 1981. In 2004, Levland Incorporated filed a word mark on Nature’s Gate Organics Fruit Blend. They also filed a mark for a logo in 2011 and a word mark again in September 2011.
NaturesGate.com was registered on December 9, 2001.
CloudAdvice.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain was owned by a Michael Perrone for several years and on March 16, 2015 the domains whois switched to a Elad Blestein of PandaPepper LTD and by April 22, 2015 whois changed to “On behalf of a CSC Client”.
Gartner, Inc. owns the domain name CloudAdvice.org and .info which were registered on March 2, 2015 and those domains are also registered at CSC, so they are the likely entity who acquired the .com domain name.
i4C Innovations, Inc. has revealed that they were the buyers of the domain name Voyce.com, that was purchased from an Ian Voyce of London about May 4, 2015 which I reported earlier but the buyers were unknown at that time.
They have since launched a website on the domain name and are offering a wearable band that helps monitor your dogs health and wellness. i4C Innovations is a subsidiary of Intersections Inc. and is headquartered in Chantilly, VA.
Home Box Office (HBO) were the buyers of the domain name RealTimeBlog.com from HugeDomains.com that I reported earlier. They have since launched a website on the domain name, Real Time with Bill Maher Blog.
Interesting to note, the domain name RealTimeBlog.com is currently redirecting to the domain name Real-Time-With-Bill-Maher-Blog.com, so I would consider this a domain name upgrade! Not often you see a domain name with 5 hyphens in it!
HBO registered the 5 hyphen domain on December 21, 2010.
Disney Enterprises, Inc. registered the domain name InsideoutSelfies.com
InkTV.com has been has also been acquired by Disney Enterprises. The domain name was for sale using DomainNameSales.com and has been registered since September 21, 2005. They have since moved this domain “to hiding” at GoDaddy under privacy protection… but I noticed the move when it happened and who was behind it!
Mren.com has been acquired by a new service that set up a teaser page on the domain name and states: “It’s time to globally connect our commercial real estate industry.”
The domain has been registered since August 30, 2001 and was listed for sale at DomainNameSales.com and registered at Uniregistry.
Walker IT Group, LLC has acquired the domain name WalkerTechnology.com from Mike Mann’s DomainMarket.com.
Amazon Technologies is making a play on the term Amazon Prime Choice and registered many domains relating to it like AmazonPrimeChoice.com, AmazonPrimeChoices.com, AmazonsPrimeChoice.com and AmazonsChoiceOnEcho.com for an example.
Jude.org has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client. The domain name was owned by The Business Centre according to whois records, then jumped to Jim Jones with DomainNameSales Corp and a “payments” email address at DomainNameSales.com and then to generic CSC data. According to whois records, the transaction took place on May 16, 2015.
To note: ALSAC St. Jude, owners of StJude.org would be a potential buyer as they are also a CSC client.
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company has acquired the domain name LungCancerGuide.com from HugeDomains.com. The domain was registered on January 30, 2013. The domain name had a listing price of $2,395.
Hub International Limited has obtained the domain name My-Hub.com. The domain name was parked with Sedo Parking and has been registered since February 4, 2013.
