Mercury, a banking company “built for startups,” has operated on the Mercury.CO domain name since its inception. Earlier this week, Jamie Zoch reported that the brand match .com domain name, Mercury.com, had moved into Escrow.com’s escrow account and might have been sold:
Wowser! Mercury(.)com moves into escrow via Escrow(.)com! The domain has been registered since 1990 and was owned by Micro Focus Software Inc. (Novell, Inc.) This was a former HPE owned domain until late 2017 when Novell took ownership. Buyers are currently unknown.
