Directnic acquires Fabulous.com but brands will remain separate.

Domain name registrar consolidation continues as Directnic has acquired Fabulous.com from Dark Blue Sea Pty, the companies announced today.

Mike Robertson, Directnic Director of Business Development, will now help manage a portfolio and business he worked for nine years prior to joining Directnic.

The businesses will continue to be operated as separate brands, with Directnic focused on business customers and Fabulous.com on domain name investors. But Robertson says Fabulous will be improved.

“Work is already in process to update the Fabulous site and infrastructure,” Robertson told DNW. “Loyal Fabulous customers need not worry though, all the tools and features will remain, with the addition of new functionality, designed to heighten the user experience. These updates will be rolled out in Q1 of 2018.”

Robertson noted, “Having spent 9 years at Fabulous previously, I have a strong understanding of what domain owners need to be successful and we will continue to focus on delivering the best service possible to our customers.”

Uniregistry gets patent for domain management and transfer system

October 31, 2017Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Uniregistry gets patent for domain management and transfer system

Patent is related to its system for monitoring domains not registered at Uniregistry.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted patent number 9,807,053 (pdf) to Uniregistry for “System and method related to domain name tracking and transfer”.

The patent describes various aspects of Uniregistry’s account management system. In particular, it focuses on the ability to monitor domain names owned by the customer that are registered at different domain name registrars. It also has claims related to transferring domain names:

What is described is a system and method providing an improved customer experience for the Registrant. The Registrant is able to use a single interface to monitor multiple domain names as well as to transfer its domain names between Registrars. The single interaction with the single interface works out just as well and just as conveniently regardless of whether at the time a Registrant commences use of the system, a single Registrar happens to be handling all of the domain names, or whether each domain name is handled by a different Registrar.

Frank Schilling and Ryan Smith are listed as inventors. The patent was filed in August 2015 but was based on a provisional application filed in August 2014.
