99 Designs Launches Swiftly
Swiftly offers website owners the opportunity to work with graphic designers on small design changes at a relatively inexpensive price with a quick turn around. For instance, designers can make logo changes, banner edits, Powerpoint fixes, and other small design changes within 24 hours. I work with dependable designers, but sometimes they aren’t available when I need a quick update, and Swiftly appears to address this problem.
It appears that 99 Designs was able to acquire the Swiftly.com domain name sometime around April of 2013, although the domain name is currently registered at Name.com under privacy, so the registrant cannot be confirmed. Prior to April, the domain name had been owned by Telepathy, a company founded and operated by longtime domain investor Nat Cohen. Nat’s company has owned the domain name since 2001, and based on the creation date, he was either the original registrant or he picked it up on a drop back in 2001.
I reached out to Nat to ask for details about the transaction, and I haven’t heard back from him yet. I will update the post if Nat is able to offer information about the deal. My guess is that it is a private transaction that is subject to a non-disclosure agreement.
I don’t recall seeing this domain name listed for sale anywhere in the past.
