    DNS management company acquires the perfect domain name.

    DNS.comWhat happens when a DNS company with a domainer background wants to upgrade its brand? It acquires the category-killer, three letter domain name DNS.com.

    Comwired, which offers hosted DNS management services, acquired DNS.com and is changing its brand. It appears the acquisition was made about two months ago, but the company is just now undergoing the rebrand.

    In a press release, Comwired CEO Dan Kimball said “This opportunity was the next step in solidifying our position in the DNS marketplace while also giving clients a peace of mind that they are being supported by a highly-robust, and economically practical DNS solution. Like many of our customers, we pride ourselves on being a technology- and service-oriented business. The DNS.com domain is a powerful asset which will help expand our online community through increased name recognition and memorability.”

    The acquisition price was not disclosed.

  • Congrats to Dan and Sean!

    Definitively the best possible name, plus the site is really nice.

    With their premium domain they are going to make jaleous all their competitors :)

    On a side note I continue searching without success a service providing:
    – “vanity DNS” service.
    – “wildcard DNS” service.

    Any info appreciated.

    Thanks

    You don’t often see a domain that has a 1991 reg’d date.

    Great purchase.

  • His quote (reason for purchase) is a great bit to add when trying to sell a top domain to an end user.

    Good to see another company that gets it.

    SOLIDIFYING a company’s position is a great way to say it.

  • It’s great when other people get it, but it’s best when I get it. :)

    Just playing.

  • Great purchase for a company like Comwired!
