A look back at February in the domain name business.
February had an extra day thanks to “leap day”, and that was a good thing…there was so much domain name news to cram into a short month! From Tesla to Ted Cruz to great podcasts, it was a busy month at Domain Name Wire.
Here are the top five stories on Domain Name Wire last month, ranked by pageviews:
2. Tesla finally acquires Tesla.com domain name – Domain Name Wire broke the news that Tesla acquired the Tesla.com domain name.
3. R.I.P. DNForum, 2001-2016 – it seems that DNForum, a long time gathering place for domain name investors, has shut down.
4. Ted Cruz: ICANN CEO is misleading the U.S. Senate – Republican presidential candidate was miffed at the ICANN CEO’s answers to his questions.
5. Did GoDaddy pay $35.5 million for Michael Berkens’ portfolio? – Yes, it did, which makes the price per domain much higher than recent domain portfolio acquisitions.
