Terran.com : From $1600 to possibly millions of dollars

Terran.com was the domain of Terran Interactive, and the domain expired after being used between 1998 and 2005. Its parent company, Media 100, had gone bankrupt in 2004.

In 2006, Terran.com was sold for $1,600 dollars on SnapNames, according to NameBio.

Its Korean registrant held it until 2014, when it was sold to Terran LLC, a California based media company that had formed in 2010. The domain’s sale price is unknown and Terran evolved into a brand building company, that acquired Treadmill.com in 2012 for $81,250 dollars. Source: NameBio.

It seems that the domain Terran.com has just changed hands again, although no visible WHOIS changes support that.

How do we know that?

A fresh trademark application at the USPTO has been filed for the mark TERRAN.COM with an “intent to use” clause. The mark’s applicant is Terran Orbital Corporation, a satellite company that has received $43 million dollars in funding.

The TERRAN.COM mark has been applied for satellites, space vehicles, plus the following services:

Consulting in the field of telecommunication services, namely, transmission of voice, data, and documents via telecommunications networks; Transmission and delivery of data, audio information and data, video images, and signals via satellite communication networks
Engineering; Engineering services in the field of space vehicles; Engineering services, namely, engineering for the custom design, product development and technological consulting services in the field of space vehicles; Technological planning and consulting services in the field of space vehicles, namely engineering, namely, engineering for the custom design, product development and technological consulting services in the field of space vehicles

One the most fascinating achievements of Terran Orbital is the manufacturing of the Pathfinder vehicle on behalf of NASA, that uses liquid water as the source of its propulsion system.

To recap: It seems that Terran Orbital has reached an agreement to acquire the domain Terran.com from Terran LLC and given the necessary domain rebranding involved, we can speculate that the domain sale involved some serious amount of money—possibly in the millions of dollars.
