Doma.com Now Used as Domaining.com “URL Shortener”

9

It was just announced that Doma.com was recently acquired by Francois Carrillo, and it is being used as a URL shortener of sorts for Domaining.com. Instead of typing in Domaining.com, you can simply visit Doma.com and end up in the same spot.

In Russian, Doma means “at home,” and it wasn’t cheap. In January of this year, Sedo reported the $7,500 sale of Doma.com. According to Carrillo, the domain name was acquired by his company via domain swap (using Carrillo’s eCop website), although I don’t know what was traded to get this particular domain name.

Francois owns a number of domain industry serving domain names and websites including the aforementioned Domaining.com, Cax.com, NumericDomains.com, DomainHacks.com, eCop.com, and others.

Congratulations on the acquisition.

    “At Home” in Russian is “дома”, which pronouncing “doma”. In some other Slavic languages (such as Czech, Slovak, etc.) it is exactly “doma”.

    I like domaining.com … no need for doma … it’s just dumma to use doma for domaining…

    Computers and phones automatically type in domaining.com once u visit it only once…

    So it’s dumma to use doma when u can just type dom and it will automatically type domaining.com

    Stop changing what’s working…need to make any changes…take a vote on domaining.com or read feedback

    Good Luck

    Hi, bad redirect! without “www” http://doma.com page does not redirect to http://domaining.com, redirect work only with “www” http://www.doma.com, at least for me!
    If the domain was bought for this purpose, they should fix it.

    Excellent purchase!

    “Doma” in russian means also “homes” if change the emphasis/accent on the letter “A”

    Эти дома были построены в XIX веке
    These houses were built in the XIX century

    These homes (эти дома) – in the plural
    This house (этот дом) – singular

    If the emphasis on the letter “O”, it means “at home”.

    thx.

    DOMA is also the acronym for the (U.S.) Defense of Marriage Act passed in 1996.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see a chunk of traffic based upon that.
