    Daily deals site gets LivingSocial.ie domain name.

    Living SocialLivingSocial has a new home on the web in Ireland: LivingSocial.ie. .Ie is the country code domain name for Ireland.

    Last month the daily deals site filed for arbitration to get the domain name. Until now it has been offering deals in Ireland on its main LivingSocial.com web address.

    The case has been terminated and the owner transferred the domain name to LivingSocial’s parent company, Hungry Machine, Inc.

    Groupon used the same process earlier this year to get the Groupon.ie domain name. Until then the company used CityDeals.ie for its Irish presence.

    LivingSocial has filed a number of domain name arbitration cases over the past month covering typos, domains that incorporate the entire LivingSocial mark, and LivingSocial.co.

  • Speaking of LivingSocial, they just bought the largest Thai deal site, Ensogo.com. So they seem ready for a global fight with Groupon.

  • I purchased from living social and did not receive my purchase it’s now been a month and no sign of the camera which they told me 8 days ago was in the post. Is this a reputable company or what is the situation with them.
    How many other deals are outstanding with them.
