Companies That Understand Domain Names

Most companies do NOT understand the importance of domain names
just like most people do NOT understand it.

However, some DO understand it.

For example, “General Electric” owns more than 15,000 domain names.
How do I know that?

Just go to DomainTools, type in GE.com and click “Search” button.
You will see following line on the result page.

“General Electric Company” owns about 15,074 other domains.”

GE issues lots of credit cards, so…
MyCreditCard.mobi is one of their latest addition which they
acquired on July 2nd, 2009.

What other companies understand Domain names?
Here are some companies that own domain names, not just their main domain name.

These are just sample lists, not all domain names they own.
For example, MicroSoft owns more than 24,000 domain names, but, you’ll only
see two of them, GPS.com and Juice.com
