Handful of domain names using “Cloud Nine” brand registered.
We’ve seen a lot of cloud products lately adopt the “cloud” name in their brand. Is a major tech company getting ready to launch a “Cloud Nine” brand?
A company has just registered a number of domain names using this brand:
The domain names were registered to DNStination, an affiliate of MarkMonitor that registers domain names on behalf of large companies. Some of the companies that use DNStination are Google, Amazon.com, Facebook, and Microsoft.
One possibility is Amazon, which already has a search product call A9.com. Then of course Microsoft has its Internet Explorer 9 browser, so this could merely be a play on being on “Cloud 9” and a marketing gimmick for the company.
What do you think?
Cloud9 is a company Andrew

Stephen – yeah, I’m not convinced that’s the one though. It’s services don’t seem related to these purchases and they don’t use MarkMonitor for their main domain registration. Could be, but I’m not putting my money on it.
I think about Cloud9 Shuttle which is a very popular airport and other destination shuttle service in Southern California. Theyve been trading under that name for at least 15 years. Different category, however if the new Cloud9 makes it big I imagine they will be speaking with each other.
