While this may or may not have anything to do with the earlier Facebook-Zynga news, the company has quietly bought up several new domains. A major internet company buying up domain names may not be normally news, but when it’s Facebook and it comes on the heels of other major news surrounding the company, it becomes magnified.
On November 30th (yesterday) Facebook registered the domain names FacebookLiveStaging.com (WHOIS), FacebookLiveStaging.net (WHOIS) and FacebookLiveStaging.org (WHOIS). The domains were all registered though the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor.
At the moment none of these domains lead to any site or even a place marker. So what does the social media giant have in mind for these URL’s? Only time will tell and there is really no point in speculating at this time. Does anyone have any ideas? Let us know in the comments below.
I wanted to give everyone a heads up. GoDaddy has made some changes to its shopping cart, (see below) where you would enter Promo and Source codes. I know that my audiences saves a ton of money every month using my GoDaddy promo codes so I wanted to make sure you were aware of the changes.
Also as a reminder the price of .com domains increased to $7.67 versus $7.49 this past July 1st due to an increase in the base price GoDaddy had to pay to ICANN for .com domains.
As a disclaimer of course GoDaddy is a sponsor here at GNC. You can save a lot or money by using one of my Promo Codes so make sure that you check them out and when you get ready to checkout, make sure you use the one that will save you the most money.
