Coca Cola Acquires

I was checking out some three letter .com domain names this morning, and I came across an interesting landing page on The landing page says “There are over 34,755 ways to explain how Coca-Cola makes you feel, and one way to describe them: Ahh.” There’s a button below the graphic imploring people to click to “explore the world of AHH,” and clicking that takes visitors to another unique url:

I did a bit of research, and it appears the domain name was acquired just last month, most likely between April 9 – April 24. On April 9, the Whois records showed that the domain name was registered to the previous owner of the domain name, Adams, Harkness & Hill. On April 24, Whois records shows Coca-Cola as the domain name’s registrant.

According to a 2001 Boston Business Journal report, Adams, Harkness & Hill is/was a Boston-based investment banking firm. A Google search for the company didn’t yield a corporate website in the top results. Using the Whois email address for the previous registrant, I was able to see that AHH was acquired in 2006 by a wealth management firm called Canaccord Genuity. doesn’t show a website on from between 2007 until now, so I don’t know if was in use or if it was used as a forwarder to the acquiring company’s website.

Fast Company has an article about Coca-Cola’s usage of the branding, and you’ll want to check it out if you’re interested in the Coca-Cola campaign.

I didn’t see any sales reports for, so it was most likely acquired in private for an undisclosed sum. Whatever the cost of the domain name was, I am sure it was worth it for this campaign.

  1. Its a big marketing campaign they are doing. They registered every variation, AHHH, AHHHH, AHHHHH etc…. all the way to 63 characters in dot com. Every page is a little different.


  2. I think the value of my “Ah” domains just went up. |, and a dozen more.

    Perhaps the creative behind this campaign saw my NamePros post, it got dissed and I made ah case.

    I got PIZZERIAH today as it truly ‘goes better with Coke-A-Colahh’.
