Quidsi Acquires Vine.com, One Of The First Domain Names Registered

Quidsi  is the new registrant of Vine.com, and a beta website has already been launched by the company. Vine.com is now home to a completely “green” website. According to the about us page:

“At Vine.com, everything’s green. Shop thousands of Vine-reviewed products from paraben-free skin care and natural cleaners to organic snacks, sustainably-made décor & more.”

Vine.com joins the ranks of Quidsi’s other descriptive domain names such as Diapers.com, Soap.com, Wag.com, YoYo.com, and Casa.com. Because it appears the transaction was completed in private, a sale price was not released.

The domain name came into the possession of Quidsi just last week, on September 27, 2012. Prior to this, it was registered to a Delaware based company called Gaugin, LLC, which took possession of the domain name on September 11, 2012. Just prior to that (on September 10, 2012), the domain name was registered to DNStination, Inc.

According to DomainTools, at the beginning of September, Vine.com was owned by Vine Technology, a company based in Sherman Oaks, California. The company appears to have been the original registrant, dating back to April 23, 1987.  Vine.com holds the title of one of the 100 earliest domain names ever registered, coming in at #68 on the list.

Thanks to  George Kirikos  for the tip
