Amazon.com win T.R.A.F.F.I.C 2013 “We Get It” Award here is my thoughts on why
In a new book launched by Brad Stone who is a Bloomberg Business journalist he discusses that back in 1994 before Amazon.com existed Jeff Bezo the Amazon founder and his team were Hand Registering High Quality DOT COM domain names for their possible future business some of the domain names were Awake.com, Browse.com and Bookmall.com all still owned by Amazon.com today.
Amazon.com also have over 21,000 domain names associated with email address – email@example.com you can check out the Whoisology report here.
Amazon.com has also acquired over the years the company Zappos.com who own the domain name Clothes.com and are associated with another 716 Domain names with firstname.lastname@example.org see their whoisology report here.
Another company that Amazon purchased was Quidsi who own the domain names Diapers.com, Soap.com, YoYo.com, BookWorm.com, Afterschool.com, Vine.com, Look.com and Wag.com plus many more excellent DOT Com domain names.
Before Amazon.com was launched Jeff named the company Cadabra but choose to launch it as Amazon.com, Cadabra.com is actually for sale today as it isn’t owned by Amazon, if you want to purchase it visit the Cadabra.com website and make an offer to its current owner.
The other name that was considered by Jeff Bezo and his wife before Amazon.com was launched was Relentless.com which again they registered and Amazon.com still owns today.
So I personally think that back in 1994 Amazon.com “Get It” and today they still “Get It” instead of purchasing the names they actually buy the businesses build on the back of these strong generic dot com domain names that have Type In Traffic waiting to give them orders 24 /7 – 365 days of the year.
