Rupert Murdoch Buys TheDaily.com and The-Daily.com Domain Names
Monday, November 22nd, 2010
Domain name purchases come in advance of new make-for-tablet newspaper.
Earlier today news hit the web that News Corp founder Rupert Murdoch is working on a new iNewspaper called “The Daily”. The Daily will be designed for tablets such as the iPad.
This caught one Domain Name Wire reader off guard, as he recalls previously visiting TheDaily.com from ASSIST Information Services. As it turns out, ASSIST sold the domain name to Murdoch’s company a while back (it looks like this happened last year) and changed its web address to TheDailyHomepages.com.
More recently, Murdoch bought The-Daily.com from BuyDomains in August of this year.
Both TheDaily.com and The-Daily.com are listed as owned by DNStinations, a stealth domain name acquisition company, but show dowjones.com as their nameservers.
