Amazon’s Quidsi lauches Vine.com for natural products

Quidsi’s latest generic domain store: Vine.com.

Vine.comI’ve scooped a number of Quidsi store openings based on generic domains they’ve bought — from Afterschool.com to Casa.com.

But I missed this one: Quidsi just launched Vine.com, a store with “natural products for green living”.

George Kirikos points out that the company appears to have acquired the domain name through Mark Monitor over the past few weeks. It was previously owned by a company called Vine Technology.

It’s a great domain and a good idea for a niche store. Still, when I first heard of the store I assumed it was on online wine store. Perhaps this one could have been a little bit more descriptive?

Amazon’s Quidsi to launch Afterschool.com offering equipment for after school activities.

September 13, 2012afterschool.com, amazon.com, Domaining, Domainnamewire, quidsi, UncategorizedComments Off on Amazon’s Quidsi to launch Afterschool.com offering equipment for after school activities.

Latest niche store to offer equipment for afterschool activities.

Afterschool.comIn June I scooped that Amazon.com subsidiary Quidsi was working on a new site call Afterschool.com. This is the second Quidsi site I’ve scooped thanks to domain registrations.

Afterschool.com now resolves to a coming soon launch page, Quidsi started social media outreach yesterday, and it recently started sending notices to merchandising partners. So what will the store be about?

Equipment for kids sports and activities.

Get it? Afterschool activities.

The coming soon page says Afterschool.com will offer 50,000 products “From baseball bats and soccer balls to ballet slippers and art supplies. One-stop shopping for everything your kids do.”

It will also have a gear finder to make shopping easy: “Our Gear Finder lets you shop by sport, activity and age, and provides a handy checklist to help you cover all the bases.”

This is an interesting and clever market approach.

Company Behind Diapers.com and Soap.com Launches Wag.com

July 6, 2011amazon.com, Domaining, Domainnamewire, quidsi, Uncategorized, wag.comComments Off on Company Behind Diapers.com and Soap.com Launches Wag.com

Another category-generic domain name site from Quidsi.

Wag.comAmazon.com-owned Quidsi, which has a habit of launching category stores on category specific generic domain names, has launched a pet store at Wag.com.

Over the past few days I’ve been trying to figure out what Amazon was up to as it registered dozens of domain names related to pets that included “Wag” in the name. My guess was a new Amazon-branded product line, but I didn’t think to check the whois record for Wag.com.

Among the domains registered: WagBirdShop.com, WagCatShop.com, WagPamperedPet.com, WagReptiles.com, WagCats.com, and WagPetToys.com.

The store is clearly not just for dog items even though the name conjures up an image of a dog wagging its tail.

Diapers.com Parent Ready to Launch Soap.com

Quidsi acquired Soap.com earlier this year; set to launch new site.

Earlier this year Quidsi, the parent company of Daipers.com, acquired the domain name Soap.com. It looks like it’s getting ready to launch a new site or brand and is sending out a teaser to the press.

Given the success Diapers.com has had with its flagship web site, it makes sense that the company would pick another great category-killer domain for its next brand. Of course, it could just be a brand and not a completely new store.

Soap.com was owned by Atlanta, Georgia-based Hill Manufacturing Co, Inc until earlier this year. On January 13 the domain name was transferred to Quidsi. The company used whois privacy from Network Solutions on the domain, but privacy doesn’t block the name of the owner.

Diapers.com started by selling only diapers, but then expanded into other baby products. It will be interesting to see what it decides to do with this domain.
