Bankrate Acquires and Launches CreditCards.ca

Company launches credit card information site for Canada.

Financial media company Bankrate recently acquired and has now launched CreditCards.ca, a credit card information site, Domain Name Wire has discovered.

Bankrate recently purchased the company CreditCards.com as well, but the acquisition of the CreditCards.ca domain name appears to be separate.

The site complements a Canada-focused sub site of CreditCards.com, ca.CreditCards.com.

Based on DomainTools historical whois it appears the domain name was acquired in December 2010. The whois for the domain name briefly went into Canadian domain name attorney Zac Muscovitch’s name before the transfer was completed.

Bankrate Buys InsuranceQuotes.com

Bankrate gets another category killer domain and web site — InsuranceQuotes.com.

Financial information company Bankrate, Inc. has purchased the lead generation web site and domain name InsuranceQuotes.com, according to whois domain name records.

The whois record for the domain name briefly transferred on April 3:

Bankrate
11760 US Highway One
suite 200
North Palm Beach, Florida 33408
United States

The expiration date for the domain also extended by one year. On April 4 the whois record suddenly changed to Go Daddy’s Domains by Proxy, Inc. whois proxy service.

Prior to this sale, InsuranceQuotes.com was sold for $85,000 through Eric Borgos of NameShopping.com. You can rest assured that it sold for much more this time around due to the development of the web site. Thanks in part of the direct match domain name, the web site ranks #1 in Google for “Insurance Quotes”. Compete.com estimates the site gets 15,000 monthly uniques, but that seems low.

Bankrate also recently bought the Bankaholic blog for $15 million.
