It appears that Apple’s reported purchase of iCloud.com for $4,500,000 from Xcerion has been confirmed by All Things Digital in a report today. Assuming it’s confirmed by the company, possibly in a SEC notification, it will likely be ranked the #1 domain sale of 2011… unless there is more to the reported sale than just iCloud.com.
Reading about the sale made me interested in seeing if Xcerion owns other cloud-related domain names, aside from CloudMe.com, which is what the company intends to rebrand itself as. If Xcerion does own other cloud names, perhaps Apple bought those, too., If Apple did buy more than just iCloud.com, it probably won’t be reported as a single domain sale.
From my research, it appears that Xcerion also owns these domain names:
- iCloudos.com (net and org, too)
- LiquidCloud.com (net and org, too)
I don’t know if Apple purchased any of these additional names, but it would seem that iCloudApps.com might be a name they would want, too. Additionally, iCloud.org and iCloud.us would make nice throw-ins as well if they were available. iCloudMusic.com would certainly seem to be a name of interest, as would iCloudNews.com. All of these names appear to still be owned by Xcerion, as does iCloud.com.
Does Apple need any of these extra domain names? I can’t speculate without knowing what iCloud.com will be, but it would seem unlikely that Xcerion would need them in light of rebranding, and it would seem silly that Apple wouldn’t try to get all of these domain names as part of the main deal. There are likely additional iCloud domain names owned by Xcerion that I didn’t notice.
I guess we’ll find out soon enough exactly what Apple bought.
Well I took a look through my inventory and while I do have a few jewels I don’t expect a $4.5 million dollar offer from Apple anytime soon.
Good for my cloud domains I have….
Apple might as well buy up that company.
Interesting that it was only the .net and .org additional extensions that had corporate interest.
Could be more, but I didn’t research other extensions.
don’t you love public companies blowing cash
must be the chemo on poor ol’ jobs
biggest waste of cash ever IMO
“biggest waste of cash ever IMO”
A domainer that spends all day commenting in the blog section of domain blogs, and making posts criticizing people for their success….. now criticizing Apple, one of the largest, most successful tech companies in the world for securing the premium domain name for their multi-billion dollar product ?
Pretty sad, Mr. “Domain Lords.” You should go outside more.
Obviously a 100% necessary purchase for apple, Xcerion must be celebrating.
@ Pretty Sad
My bet is it will be looked at as a very good deal by both companies. Apple gets the names it wants/needs for a big launch and Xcerion gets millions of dollars, and it just needs to rebrand a product/service.
not a ‘domainer’
domainers have no clue
domain lords are virtual land lords
it takes a few minutes to spew my pearls of wisdom
spent most of day with one of my GF’s
hottest 22 yr old you will ever see
I make a fortune off domain rentals everyday
so lots of ‘free time’
I spent a little time each month buying up more assets
others now develop
others now lease
I go to lunch with my hot 18 to 22 yr old GF’s
shoot the shit
and yeah, I consider it an insult to call me a ‘domainer’
domain lords are not domainers
they own valuable internet assets
they have them developed
they have clients that RENT
the only DOMAIN LORDS here is me
the rest of you think you are doing something
Xcerion seems to have been pretty serious about using the Icloud brand up until now. Besides the generic TLDs, they even own the name in extensions such as .is and .ph and propably loads more.
Xcerion is doing great
who you think you are .. ?
one’s you said gf’s i knew you are a gay period!
beside Pretty Sad is totally right securing there multi-billion product + every one know who is Apple right lord ?
and we would be shamed if you call your self a
domainer Trust Me 😀
Yep got a ton of GF’s
Everyone I met when they were 18 to 21
A couple now 22 and 23
They get on the stick between 18 and 21
I blow them out by 25
I’ll never say I’m a ‘domainer’
I don’t live in my mom’s basement
That’s the normal qualifier for a ‘domainer’
I take advantage of domainers all day
Buy from them all the time
Dummies 99% of them
They don’t know what they have
Now ‘developers’ and ‘developers that lease’
Ok, they have a clue, as long as they don’t sell, unless it’s for a huge 100M+ payday
The rest of the people playing on the net, I give them no respect, since they’re really NO BODIES IMO
So what, that’s my opinion
I can assure you I’m not ‘gay’
In fact I’m know for breaking jaws over dumb shit like that
So I hope I meet you one day
Call me gay
Then touch me
You will be in intensive care with a wired jaw like that
3 belts in martial arts and yeah BAD TO THE BONE
I kick ass

wow tons of BS-ing around here.
This domain game is getting into your head!!
anyway, all sites are BS anyway.
Domain Lords – Actually, Michael is a broker for my domains. He is not an exclusive broker, but other than my listings on sedo.com and afternic.com I don’t have any other brokers. Michael has not made any sales for me so far, but he has brought me a few offers, so that is something at least.
You may not like my portfolio of domains, but I consistently sell around $300,000 worth of my domains a year (see
http://www.impulsecorp.com/domain-names-i-recently-sold-%E2%80%93-january-2011 for some of my recent sales) so end users tend to like them, even if a domainer like yourself doesn’t. Just in the past month I sold an additional $300,000 worth of domains, not listed on my blog yet.
did you forget the 3,750,000 offer Come on now! 😀
Yes, one of the offers Michael got for me was $3.75 million for all my 9000 domains. I was tempted to take it even though it was low, but decided not to. Still, any offer is better than no offers. If I were desperate for cash I might have taken it, but right now I don’t need cash since I have sold around $600,000 in domains in the past 6 months.
And you are the only Man who i stuck with : D
Prices are real aw! but sooner or letter Man um doing my best .. beside Lets Chat in Privet End of Story 🙂
@ BullS i see that on your site :
$$ BullShitWebsites.com is worth more than Facebook.
just wanna say congrats 🙂
but Price need to be mentioned yo! 😀
um stuck with your Names 😉
but also The market is down and Prices are high for the clients 🙂
Beside Sedo and Afternic are market Places , anyhow sooner or later i will make a good one for you
@BullS I see this on your site :
$$ BullShitWebsites.com is worth more than Facebook.
just wanna say congrats 😀
@ eric B
look dude, no offense to the stuff on your site, generic keywords, some ok for low end cpc potential traffic stuff
but the issue I had isn’t with you, it’s with the dude attacking me who I kicked his butt, then he’s crying I should be banned
anyway, didn’t really look at much of your inventory, but some ‘keywords’
not for business development as to high value cpc terms
so it’s not something that ‘impresses’ me
and if they’re generating 300K or 600K a year for you, great you can pay the reg fees then on 9K names
it looks fishy, hidden moniker whois with an arab with less then 2 years of time on his domain saying he’s ‘brokering’ them
anyway, good luck with the keywords
My advise take the 3.5M
then learn how to invest and develop in high end cpc terms
the cpc costs are only going higher now
3K lawyers in some markets and only 10 can be page one
so do the math
they’re all trying to break into high ppc rotation and the only company DOING it over and over is us
and it’s done with professional keyword terms
so, sell the whole lot (my advice)
then reinvest into the professional terms that lawyers and doctors and realtors have to use to get a foot in the ppc rotation
anyone really doing what I do for a living understands
it’s almost impossible to get a new person into a rotation with 300 lawyers or doctors all in line BUYING THE TERM
yet, I get my clients right to the top
so yeah, I’m bragging
and I”m saying
no one can do what we do
and if anyone has high end professional terms
we buy all day
unfortunately, what you have is not high value cpc terms
but I’m sure some like stuff like dumb or orgasm
but yeah, someone may throw money on it
the find it crap
yeah, it’s priced to sell
don’t have time to sort through all your stuff
I think you had a nice cpc term on investments?
other than that
didn’t really see much
maybe a divorce term too
if that was you
nothing with big cpc terms
in case you haven’t heard GOOGLE KILLED ALL LOCAL SEO with the big tweak
look up lawyer GEO
what you see
5 ppc ads and 2 maps
maps are being stuck now high if they associate to ppc budgets
yeah, some are in still without ppc
but they’re DROPPING fast
so, that being said, the big google tweak was to end organic seo in first view for big money cpc terms
so now the game is control of first view by control of the keywords to get high rotation ppc
enough free advice here
Again, what are some of these high value domain names you own (since you buy them all day long)?
I’m seeing a lot of smoke blown (and lots of criticism of others, including myself) but you aren’t supporting any of what you are saying about yourself and/or whomever you represent.
I guess you don’t know the top legal terms huh
kicked what when i ignore you that doesn’t mean you did! and i am not crying but you insult every one! And Me and about Gay ( yes it’s a Fact ) google it! ( Along with People who got a pic kissing A girl 😀 )
That’s all beside i just ignored you and really want it!
-You can have the best websites in the freaking world but it is useless if people got no money to buy.
-You are not saving any money even you buy stuffs at a big discount IF YOU don’t NEED them– so what the point!!
-All of the content of the websites are plagiarize redundant content
-All Websites are useless to 99% of the people in Africa,America, in Muslim Countries when their #1 priority is FOOD.
-last but not least—spending time on the internet is a freaking waste of time.

I was able to grab clouddit.com today. I hope Reddit founders will one day think of launching a cloud service.
@ domainlords.net (:) LOL )
I’ve never heard so much BULLSH*T in all my life.
never had any GF’s
Live with your mama
And aing got a real job
Own a 100 shitty domains and cant even pay reg fee.
If you want us o shut up, show us some of these magical domains you own.
If you dont this just proves your full of sh*t#
Get a grip.
u wanna see what the Lords control
read the blog
a few of the posts are about recent acquisitions
one post listed 30+ domains
all geolawyer stuff
dui is not a major law term
you aren’t qualified to even comment on high valued cpc terms
you’re a domainer
domainers do zero high cpc term development
domainers think only a .com is worth developing
a developer can take a hyphen or a .net or even a .org and even a .biz and if it’s the right high cpc term
make a ton of money off of it
domainers have no clue
the only ones posting here that can take a name most of you would never get, and find a 5K or 10K monthly client for it is THE LORDS
that’s why we’re ‘DOMAIN LORDS’ and you all are ‘domainers’
so yeah, we acquire stuff all day
in law alone we have 500+ domains
most are geokeywrods where the term is 40 to 120 bucks CPC
the ones we have clients on pay 2500 to 25K a month on
we hold stuff we want 250K a month on
so read the site, I see you erased your question
look at the acquisitions posts
it shows our buying patterns
whenever a good lot of legal geo’s comes up, we’re usually the top bidder
same with keywords
anyway, in law lawyer and attorney are actually minor cpc terms
geo lawyer is usually 10 to 20 bucks
it’s the niches
that are big bucks
in some geos’ it’s over 100 bucks now
anyway, we got enough keywords in law to eventually have 6K world wide clients
20 or so specialists in 300 top cities around the world
we have tons of .com’s and nets and orgs and even biz and yep mobi
hold a few info
hold some us
and law isn’t our only niche
same in auto
same in insurance
same in medical
so if it’s a high cpc term for personals
we own a ton of virtual real estate in it
and we’re the only ones with a business model showing huge revenue per name
you can read our blog to see what we acquired recently
big money cpc terms
