Last week we wrote about adamo.com and the importance of owning your brand's domain name. As this week comes to a close, we received an update on adamo.com and Dell's ownership thereof from Bill Sweetman, general manager of YummyNames, the company (a division of Tucows) who owned the name:
It turns out that Dell does recognize the importance of a good domain name. I can't divulge any specific details of the deal, but what I can say is that over the last week I was able to broker a deal directly with Dell, and Dell is now the new owner of the adamo.com domain name. Tucows and YummyNames are happy with the deal, and I would imagine that so is Dell. I wish Dell lots of luck with the ongoing global rollout of the Adamo laptop, and I am glad this domain name story has ended on a positive note.
And if you check, adamo.com does now point to Dell's notebook site. We're always happy to see a domain name go to a good home!
So, what's your take? Do you think it was important that Dell ultimately ended up owning the domain? Or was this all a tempest in a teapot?
