MarkMonitor’s job is pretty simple. Secure domains for their clients and keep them under wraps until the client is ready. With the public release of Daily Changes it’s been a little harder to hide. One of the strategies of MarkMonitor is to secure many different domains for a client and then let the client choose. It’s not very costly if they are hand registrations but it can add up if a customer has too many choices. If you’ve ever dealt with MarkMonitor you know that they are pretty stealth in their dealings. You think you are selling to a regular old guy. Later you find out that a big company just picked up your domain for $1000. Today I noticed they registered and acquired a bunch of unusual 5 to 7 letter dot coms. None are similar in anything but “style” . A few are also typos of eachother. I’m curious to see what they become. Take a look at today’s MarkMonito’s acquisitions.
