Domain Name for Radical Football, Founded by Mark Cuban, Has Interesting Provenance
Mark Cuban announced plans for a new company called Radical Football, which is expected to compete with college football’s BCS. I will spare you the company details since you’re probably not interested in that, but the domain name history for RadicalFootball.com is very interesting.
In 2007, a company called Maverick Media purchased RadicalFootball.com. Interestingly, it does not look like Maverick Media has anything to do with Mark Cuban, since Cuban’s basketball team is the Dallas Mavericks. It appears the domain name expired in 2008.
In February of 2009, it appears that a company called turn dial web solutions registered RadicalFootball.com. It appears that the domain name then expired in February of 2010. Two different owners in two years, neither appearing to use the domain name (at least according to Archive.org).
At some point in time, the domain name was listed by a previous owner on Sedo for around 99 £ (around $160). The domain name has not been removed from Sedo yet, despite its history.
In December of 2010, it appears that Mark Cuban’s company registered the domain name, although it’s currently a private registration and not possible to see who actually owns it. When you visit the website, you can see that it has Mark Cuban’s company information at the bottom of the page.
Talk about an interesting domain history.
