Once again, this company has cut it close.
In April I wrote about how 15 Fortune 100 companies had domain names that expired this year.
It’s now October, and all of the companies have renewed their domains before they expired. Some have cut it close to the wire, and here’s another example.
Lockheed Martin’s LockheedMartin.com domain name expires this month. In just 11 days.
I believe most of the company uses LMCO.com for email, but this is still a big deal.
Amazingly, it appears that Lockheed only renews this domain name one year at a time. The past couple years it has renewed it with just a few days to go.
Why wouldn’t you renew this domain for ten years? I doubt the annual renewal fee is a big hit to a $41 billion company.
Three Fortune 500’s have domain names that expire next month, and they all depend greatly on the domains: Metlife.com, Delta.com, and Fedex.com. These companies also renew their key domain just one year at a time.
