On May 27, 2006, Angelina Jolie gave birth to the couple’s third child, a daughter named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, in Namibia. And the celebrity domain names were again in the spotlight!
Defamer points to the news that lawyers of Angelina Jolie “Lavely & Singer gave Angelina Jolie an incredibly thoughtful gift shortly after the Namibian birth of her baby, registering an array of domain names, including ShilohJoliePitt.com and ShilohNouvelJoliePitt.com”.
Domain Works, a source of Domain Name News and Analysis, further elaborates on the news item –
Within hours of the birth of Shiloh Nouvel Jolie Pitt, the actress’ reps had registered the domain name ShilohJoliePitt.com, heading off a name grab by domain speculators. The name was registered Saturday at 8:27 pm, with Angelina Jolie listed as the owner of record. For someone who just gave birth, the actress was pretty efficient, grabbing shilohnouveljoliepitt.com as well, along with the .net, .org, and .info extensions for both names. It seems the quick action was warranted, as the .biz and .us extensions – which were left unprotected – were snapped up within hours.
Domain names provides a unique identity on the web. Gifting domain names is an excellent idea. How many of us have gifted or registered a domain name for our children? Celebrity domain names command at a premium price and domain squatters are always on the lookout. You can always hire a domain broker or Backorder Domains and pay more if really want to buy a prized domain name.
