I happened to come across a domain name owned by a company called MicroStrategy, Inc. On the home page, there was a note about the company, and below that, there was a message that said, “Please contact [email]@microstrategy.com for domain availability inquires.” With a note like that, I assumed the company owned additional domain names, and I was correct.
I grabbed the sentence from the home page and searched for it in Google using quotes around the term to get the exact match results. There were quite a few great domain names / websites listed. Among the company’s domain names I found:
On the landing page, MicroStrategy is described as “a global leader in Business Intelligence.” The company also seems to be quite a leader when it comes to its domain strategy.
Wow, quite the warchest of domains MicroStrategy has there. I wonder how many other under-the-radar companies are silently sitting on goldmines like this.
I’ve always marveled at the collection owned by the guy who has italy.com, fiji.com, getaway.com, etc. Now that is a fine collection of names if I’ve ever seen one.
Incidentally, MyEmma is suing MicroStrategy over the domain Emma.com.
They are publicly traded – MSTR
Their 10K or 10Q’s don’t break down the names individually or even mention them.
Their latest 10Q talks about a subsidiary named Angel.com
Not many shares outstanding. No Debt. Around a Billion in marketcap.
Looks to be a Beast.
@Elliot – were you able to see all the names they own?
May be worth reading their 10K and latest 10Q when you get sometime.
I don’t own any, but I’ve watched it over the years
Currently at $108
Very interesting collection of domains. Good to know there are still amazing names out there.
Located near my office in Tysons Corner, VA. Microstrategy was a high flyer in the late 90s. Cooled off, but still a big player. If you go to Tysons Corner Center, large mall outside DC, you will pass Microstrategy’s building that is connected to the mall
CEO just unloaded about 6M worth of shares.
I have received Cease & Desist letter from MicroStrategy Legal VP for owning Indian domains (microstrategy.in and microstrategy.co.in). I still have them.

Yes, they are a Business Intelligence company but they don’t own businessintelligence.com!
