A UDRP was recently filed by the European Handball Federation for the valuable EHF.com domain name. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It is WIPO Case D2016-0057.
It looks like the European Handball Federation uses EuroHandball.com for its website domain name.
EHF.com is currently registered privately, and it has been under privacy for quite some time. This domain name has a creation date of September of 1999. The domain name appears to be parked at DomainNameSales.com. I checked NameBio, and I do not see any public sales history for this domain name, and I did not see any references to this domain name being sold.
Three letter .com domain names have considerably grown in value over the last few years, and especially in the last few months. Mike Berkens recently reported about the increase in wholesale value of LLL .com domain names. Although EHF.com wouldn’t likely be considered a “Chinese premium” because of the vowel, the domain name certainly has considerable value due to the number of companies, people and websites that have the EHF acronym or initials (including the European Handball Federation). In fact, Estibot shows that EHF.com has a value of $168,000.
I will keep my eyes on this UDRP and follow up on this report once the decision has been published.
Update: The UDRP was won by the complainant in a decision that was just published.
