Salesforce.com buys Work.com domain name
Monday, July 30th, 2012
Another confirmation that Salesforce.com bought Work.com domain name.
In March I put together a fairly convincing argument that Salesforce.com had purchased Work.com.
Now we have another good confirmation: the nameservers on Work.com have changed to Salesforce.com. Here are the nameservers currently on the Work.com domain name:
In March I wrote about how all signs pointed to Salesforce having purchased the domain name. The whois record and brand protection company to whom the domain was registered was the same as Site.com, which Salesforce.com recently purchased. Work.com had also been listed in a Moniker auction, and Salesforce has purchased multiple names through Moniker including Data.com.
I happened to check the Work.com nameservers today when I noticed that Saleforce.com acquired another domain, GovernmentCloud.com, using the same brand protection service.
Will Work.com be for Salesforce’s push into the human resources market? We’ll have to see.
