Did Netflix Just Buy DVD.Com?
The nameservers and registrant information for DVD.com just changed. The domain now forwards to DVD.netflix.com, signalling that Netflix may have purchased the domain.
Sometime around March 25 the nameservers changed from worldnic.com to ULTRADNS.NET, the same DNS provider Netflix uses.
The domain’s whois also changed from a Network Solutions private registration to a DNStinations registration. DNStinations is essentially a whois proxy service for brand protection company Mark Monitor. Mark Monitor has done work for Netflix in the past, including registering domains related to its short-lived Qwikster name.
Given this confluence of changes, I’d be willing to bet that Netflix has purchased DVD.Com
