GoDaddy acquired a small domain name portfolio from Monster Worldwide via its NameFind entity. I noticed several transfers from Monster to NameFind through my DomainTools Registrant Alert email notification, and Jamie Zoch tweeted about it on Saturday:

Shortly after reading Jamie’s tweet, I ran into GoDaddy Aftermarket VP Paul Nicks on the beach in Cascais at NamesCon Europe, and he confirmed the acquisition. Other than telling me the deal was brokered by CSC, Paul said he could not offer any additional comments about it, per company policy.
Upon a quick glance at some of the domain names that were transferred, I do not see any notable domain names of interest to me. It looks like the domain names are primarily related to education, careers, and jobs. This is not surprising given Monster’s business. From what I can tell, the domain names are primarily .com, .net, and .org.
As Jamie Zoch reported in 2016, Monster previously sold a portfolio of its domain names to BuyDomains.
