Amazon.com Buys KindleFire.com Domain Name
Tuesday, September 27th, 2011
Yes, Amazon.com owns KindleFire.com.
Amazon is rumored to be launching the Kindle Fire tablet and eReader on Wednesday. But a lot of people have asked, “what about the domain name?”
After all, the company owns a lot of other nature Kindle domains, such as KindleWave.com.
Domain Name Wire has confirmed with the previous owner of the domain name that he sold it to Amazon.com.
The New York resident who sold the domain name didn’t divulge any details, but the domain name went under whois privacy in early 2010. It remains that way today.
I’m not surprised that Amazon owns it. It has proven itself savvy about buying domain names and typos ahead of product launches.
Alas, it looks like someone just registered wwwKindleFire.com yesterday at Go Daddy.
