Who Owns the Holiday .com Domains?

Today I was reading Sahar Sarid’s post about Thanksgiving.com and I started to wonder who owns the the Holiday domain names. Granted, these are 1 day domains, or in the true sense, “seasonal” but during the right time of the year, they probably generate more PPC revenue than most domainer’s portfolios do over an entire year.

Christmas.com
GLobalAccess, a nice company that resides in the Isle of Man. They’ve got this one parked and have owned it since 1994-08-05.

Thanksgiving.com
Scott Day owns this one, registered on 1997-12-29, I’m sure that this domain had a great year this year!

Easter.com
Hallmark owns this great domain, perfect for a company that sells a lot of easter cards! Registered on 1998-03-14, this one was probably drop-caught at one point.

Halloween.com
This is a very interesting domain, looks like it has been owned since 1994-08-30 and it’s partially developed, the owner also owns halloween.biz, santaclaus.com, santaclaus.info, hurricane.com, PhoneBook.com, scholarships.net, thanksgiving.info, easter.biz, find.biz, court.com, diving.com, jacksonville.biz. Quite the Holiday Collection!

AprilFools.com
InfoSpace owns this one, it was registered on 1996-05-28. It seems to be a pseudo-parked page put together by InfoSpace.

NewYears.com
Domain Capital shows up as the owner in whois, but it looks like this domain is being used by CLUBPLANET, an end user. Originally registered on 1997-12-12.

MemorialDay.com
Jeff Reynolds, aka precision marketing owns this domain, registered on 1996-10-11, the site promotes AmericanFlags.com, which Jeff also owns AmericanFlags.com.

IndepenceDay.com
It was registered in 2004. I noticed that the .net/org/info/us arent taken yet.

LaborDay.com
Versimedia owns this domain, registered on 1997-08-10, it forwards to Greetingcards.com.

ColumbusDay.com
Versimedia also owns this domain, picked up on 1999-03-13.

VeteransDay.com
Versimedia scores again, registering this name on 1997-08-10, the same day as LaborDay.com.

MartinLutherKingJr.com
Its a name and a holiday, Frank Schilling owns this one, registered on 2002-05-23.

Hanukkah.com
Registered on 1997-10-23, this name is owned by Versimedia, which also owns GreetingCards.com and several ofther big domains.

And Finally…

Holidays.com
Owned by P. Gordon, owner of Getaway.com and UnitedStates.com.

Holiday.com
Registered on 1998-11-06 by Holiday.com, Inc. which is a Japanese Company, this domain is sort-of a parked/directory site.
