Company gets domain name for its new music service.
When Amazon.com announced its music-anywhere service and corresponding Cloud Player a few months ago, it was missing a key ingredient — the domain name CloudPlayer.com.
It has belatedly fixed that problem.
On July 11 the whois record for CloudPlayer.com transferred to Amazon. It hasn’t yet started forwarding the domain name to its product page, however.
Cloud Player is the application to access your Amazon Cloud Drive, where you store your music on the service.
The domain name was owned by Cheray Unman, who has an outfit called Venture Bank at VentureBank.com. (It’s an odd web site that will leave you confused more than enlightened.)
My guess is this domain name cost Amazon more now than it would have before it launched the product.
