DNS management company acquires the perfect domain name.
What happens when a DNS company with a domainer background wants to upgrade its brand? It acquires the category-killer, three letter domain name DNS.com.
Comwired, which offers hosted DNS management services, acquired DNS.com and is changing its brand. It appears the acquisition was made about two months ago, but the company is just now undergoing the rebrand.
In a press release, Comwired CEO Dan Kimball said “This opportunity was the next step in solidifying our position in the DNS marketplace while also giving clients a peace of mind that they are being supported by a highly-robust, and economically practical DNS solution. Like many of our customers, we pride ourselves on being a technology- and service-oriented business. The DNS.com domain is a powerful asset which will help expand our online community through increased name recognition and memorability.”
The acquisition price was not disclosed.
