Apple Inc. bought 3 New gTLD domain names with different variations of the name of late Apple founder Steve Jobs. The domain names were registered this Friday February 7th 2014 at Apple’s brand protection registrar: Corporation Service Company.
Apple registered 3 .estate domain names and paid upwards of $1000 for each domain name:
Apple used the Early Access Program (EAP) by Donuts, the .estate registry to buy these 3 domains and thus paid more than $1000 for each.
Apple hasn’t bought any other New gTLD domain names related to Steve Jobs but is has bought many other New gTLD domain names such as apple.guru and apple.photography. Click here and here to see in detail what they have bought in the 10 days.
Apple’s memorial webpage for Steve Jobs is located at http://www.apple.com/stevejobs/.
Apple owns the domain name StevenJobs.com that currently doesn’t resolve to a website.
Apple has not registered any of the corresponding New gTLDs in .com:
Hello bro. I bought stevenpauljobs.science and isteve.science . Does it wort any money? I think I have a shot at this cause steve jobs was a science guy. What do you think???
Just terrible. Please think before you register. Who on earth (and the universe) would ever want to own these? -$0
It’s all your fault man(JK) 😛 after reading your article I couldn;t resist my self from buying branded domain. Well no harm no foul..
But http://onlinedomain.com/2014/01/31/news/apple-buys-apple-guru-iphone-guru-ipad-guru-mac-guru/ in your article you said companies buy to protect their traidmark. How about this domain bigboy.science??
Sir, One question caught me, How’s StevenPaulJobs.estate is different from StevenPaulJobs.science ??
Not very different. Both have no value to domain investors. .estate was bought to supposedly protect the estate of steve jobs by its brand protection agency. Steve jobs would never buy that and not anyone else spending their own money and not their clients money.
thanks… I understand now.
