Bear Grylls Acquires Outdoors.com

Bear Grylls, a popular outdoor adventurer, writer, and television personality announced that he and partners have acquired Outdoors.com and relaunched the website with Grylls-related branding:

This wasn’t simply a great domain name purchase. In looking at Archive.org, it looks like Outdoors.com was already an established outdoors-focused brand. With Grylls’ background, it is a perfect opportunity for him to grow the brand and expand his own personal reach. It looks like articles from the original Outdoors.com website have been ported over to the new website, and the design has been modernized and updated with Grylls’ personal branding.

Using the Whois History tool at DomainTools, it appears that the domain name changed hands in September when it transferred from Namecheap to GoDaddy under Whois privacy. Outdoors.com utilized Whois privacy for quite a long time – since 2015, so the exact date the domain name sold is unclear.

Terms of the deal do not appear to have been announced. Because it looks like the entire business was acquired, this wouldn’t be considered a domain name-only transaction.
