Comwired has acquired the domain name DNS.com in order to relaunch as a provider of managed enterprise DNS services.
The company announced this morning that it bought the domain, first registered in 1991 and previously parked, for an undisclosed amount.
The transaction appears to have happened at the end of last month and the site is already live.
With the acquisition, Comwired looks like it’s targeting the market for high-availability DNS resolution currently occupied by the likes of Neustar, Afilias and Dynamic Network Services.
The company was perhaps previously best-known for the geographic traffic-splitting service it offered to domainers and others.
The Whois record for DNS.com still shows a Moniker private registration, which I speculate would not be an exactly comforting sight for would-be enterprise customers.
