Go Daddy Files Patent Apps for “Redirecting to a Book Web Site”

May 26, 2011domain patent, Domain Registrars, Domaining, Domainnamewire, go daddy, godaddy.comComments Off on Go Daddy Files Patent Apps for “Redirecting to a Book Web Site”

Registrar files two applications for ideas related to helping people find book web sites.

Go Daddy has filed two patent applications related to helping web users connect to book web sites.

U.S. applications 12/625892 and 12/625919 (pdf) provide for “redirecting a user to a book’s website after submitting a request for information about the book. The book’s website or a link to the website may be displayed to the user on a client browser.”

For example, a user could type an ISBN number into an interface and be redirected to the book’s web site.

So what does this have to do with domain names? It’s a way to encourage authors and publishers to register more domain names.

An author might be notified of multiple domain names to register, including the book’s ISBN, the book name with alternate top level domain names, and perhaps his own name in .me to create a biography web site.

Upon registering the domains, the author or publisher may be notified that it appears these domain names are related to a book, and offering to forward the domain names to the make book web site.

The applications were filed in 2009 and just published today.
