More Guess Who Doesn’t Own The Domain Name

Just as I was about to write a follow-on to my earlier post on LinkedIn’s mobile site, I found another example of a corporation not owning a domain name for their brand, product or service.

LinkedIn’s mobile site is at m.linkedin.com, but not at linkedin.mobi, as it is owned by someone in California and it is a parked page. Then I saw this post on the Chicagoist blog about a Web site for tracking down which McDonald’s restaurants serve Shamrock Shakes called – you guessed it – ShamrockShake.com. It is also owned buy someone in California. I would have thought after being exposed in Wired magazine’s article about not owning mcdonalds.com back in 1994, they would have gone on a spree to buy up ever conceivable name possible.

So make sure to get your domain name – billions have already been served!
