$4.5 Million: What Apple Might Have Paid For iCloud.com DomainApril 28, 2011 4:39 am
As everyone eagerly awaits the Apple cloud, here is some news – Apple has most probably acquired the iCloud.com domain name for 4.5 Million dollars.
“Until recently, iCloud.com was a domain name and a storage-as-a-cloud service owned by Linkoping, Sweden-based desktop-as-a-service company, Xcerion. Xcerion’s iCloud service has just been rebranded to CloudMe, and the company acquired the CloudMe.com domain on April 5, 2011.
My source, who is familiar with the company, says that Xcerion has sold the domain to Apple for about $4.5 million. Xcerion hasn’t responded to my queries as yet. At the time of writing, the Whois database showed Xcerion as the owner of iCloud.”
