Three #domains: D-Day, Battle of Normandy, and Operation Overlord

On June 6, 1944, Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy in France, in the biggest amphibious invasion ever undertaken.

Targeting the Nazi occupation forces in France wasn’t easy. The plan was developed almost a year in advance, and the code name was “Operation Overlord.”

The battle of Normandy that ensued, came at a cost: more than 4,414 Allied troops were confirmed dead, with more than 9,000 wounded or missing. Germans lost at least 4,000 to 9,000 troops on the day of the invasion, or D-Day.

The domains OperationOverlord.com and BattleOfNormandy.com were registered many years ago, by none other than the legendary domain investor Frank Schilling. In the early 2000’s, Schilling admittedly stayed “indoors” losing his tan, growing his hair long, and registering “by hand” thousands of domains that formed the core of his portfolio sold to GoDaddy, eventually.

These two domains are currently for sale on the Uni Market but it’s not clear if GoDaddy still owns them. It’s possible that they were acquired by other investors.

Meanwhile, D-Day.com was registered early in the 2000’s by Innovation HQ. It’s not clear if the same registrant owns the domain, although it’s also up for sale at the Uni Market.

Honoring the men and women that sacrificed their lives to liberate Europe, for the 77th year, might lead to the sale of one or all of these domains.
