Here’s what made waves in March.
March was a busy month in the domain name industry with people heading to CloudFest in Germany and the ICANN meeeting in Puerto Rico. On DNW, top stories involved Scientology, expired domains and a couple of big domain name sales.
These were the top stories on DNW last month:
1. Take a look at The Church of Scientology’s domain names – The controversial organization owns thousands of defensive domain names, plus some used to attack critics.
2. Another example of why your company must be the registrant of its domain names – A Canadian airline says that a contractor is holding its domain names hostage.
3. Name.com expired domains are now on GoDaddy – The registrar agreed to partner with GoDaddy for expired domains as part of its parent company’s deal to sell its domain portfolio to GoDaddy.
4. Star.org sells for $225,000 at Sedo – It is the third largest public .org sale of all time.
5. 17 end user domain name sales up to $500,000 – A three letter domain sold for a half of a million dollars. Does anyone want to buy DNW.com?
