Neustar Domain Names


FaceTime.com Now Owned By Apple Ahead of Wednesday’s Event


Apple FaceTime

Many technology blogs and Apple fans are looking forward to the Apple event scheduled for tomorrow in San Francisco. It is widely speculated that the event will be the venue for an  announcement  about the newest version of the Ipad.

Some people have speculated that the IPad 2 may have a camera, which would likely enable Apple's "FaceTime." FaceTime is a popular application that allows video calls on the iPhone 4, the newest version of the iPod touch, and Mac computer to Mac computer using a wifi connection.

I just received a tip that in the last couple of days, it appears that Apple has taken possession of the FaceTime.com domain name. According to a Whois lookup as recently as February 20, 2011, FaceTime.com was owned by a company called FaceTime Communications, Inc.

Using the iPad as a Sales Tool


When I walked into a photographer's studio in Lowell a few years ago to speak about my new website, the photographer was very interested in what I planned to do.

Smartly, I brought my iPad, and when people asked how the site works, the person who was standing outside the table was able to use the iPad to walk them through the site to show them how it works and looks.

There was no need to rely on a wifi connection. We simply hooked it up to AT&T's 3g network, and voila!   It was a helpful sales tool, and after talking with my friend and fellow domain investor Tony Casella whose → Read More

iPad.com: New Millionaire About to be Minted Courtesy of Apple?


Apple iPadAfter considerable speculation and discussion, Steve Jobs introduced the new Apple iPad today in a press conference that received much fanfare. The iPad is a device that is a new category of computing systems that bridges the gap between the iPhone smartphone and the Macbook laptop.

If history is an indication of the current situation, Apple is going to want the iPad.com domain name, just as they own iPhone.com and iPod.com.   iPhone.com was also privately held before Apple paid a great sum of money for it, and iPod.com has been owned by Apple for quite some time (since at least 2001 according to a Whois history search).

iPad.com has been a privately owned domain name since 1997. The current registrant (Administrative Contact) is a person with a New Jersey address named Martine Bejasa. They don't have much on the front side of the website, although it's quite possible there is information for clients of the owner, as there is a client log in on the home page. The owners will probably get a ton of traffic, which will be → Read More
