Tile App Upgrades to Tile.com

The Tile app has upgraded to Tile.com, which had been registered to Digimedia for many years. I detected a Whois change on the domain name yesterday morning, and the domain name is now registered to a Whois privacy proxy service. If you visit Tile.com, you will be redirected to TheTileApp.com, the website used by Tile. Previously, as you can see from this Archive.org entry, the domain name was generating revenue with pay per click parking advertisements.

I reached out to Scott Day and Jay Chapman to see if they could comment on this and confirm that the domain name was sold. I don’t recall the company ever confirming sales or transactions, so it is no surprise that they didn’t confirm any details. I also reached out to the Tile app team to see if anyone from their company could comment, and I have not yet heard back from them.

According to its Crunchbase profile, Tile has raised $59 million in funding, including a $25 million Series B round of funding this past May. Getting the exact match Tile.com domain name would seem to be a great move for the company that is simply known as Tile. Obviously a domain name like Tile.com can be used in many ways, and I am sure there are plenty of floor tile and marble tile companies that would have loved to own the category defining .com domain name.

Although DomainIQ says Tile.com is worth $294,000, my guess would be that this was a 7 figure deal (assuming the domain name was sold). Again, there is no confirmation of a domain name sale, but the domain name is now privately registered and resolves to the Tile website.
