ZS.com Now Owned by ZS Associates

ZSIt looks like a company called ZS Associates has acquired the high value ZS.com domain name. The company currently uses ZSAssociates.com for its website. As you can see to the left, the company’s logo is simply “ZS,” so this domain name upgrade will fit right into its branding without much changing.

Although ZS.com does not yet resolve for me, a DomainTools monitor alert notified me of the change of ownership this morning. In addition, George Kirikos noted the registrant change in a tweet this morning:

In early February, Andrew Rosener’s Media Options was brokering ZS.com for $2,500,000. I do not see any other broker emails in my archives offering this domain name for sale. Namebio does not have any historical sales indexed for ZS.com. I would assume this was a 7 figure sale, but if it was privately transacted, we may never know for sure. I reached out to Andrew Rosener to inquire about whether he brokered this domain name, and if he can offer any additional information, I will update the article.

Prior to its sale, ZS.com was owned by a compay called Z-Systems, Inc. Historical Whois records show that the domain name was owned by this company since at least 2000, the earliest historical Whois record maintained by DomainTools. It’s likely that the company owned this domain name for even longer than that. ZS.com has a creation date of May 9, 1997.

It will be interesting to see if ZS Associates forwards ZS.com to its website or decides to move its website to ZS.com. I would not be surprised if they move the website to their new domain name.
