Who owns the #domain name GeorgeFloyd.com and was the “George Floyd” name sold on #Afternic?

George Floyd is being remembered as a victim of police brutality.

From Wikipedia:

“On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down on the street.”

As strange as it seems, “George Floyd” is not exactly a rare name, but all references on the internet are overwhelmingly about the man who lost his life as the result of police violence.

So who owns the domain name GeorgeFloyd.com and what is the domain’s history?

GeorgeFloyd.com

First registered in 2000, the domain dropped and was re-registered in 2011 by an Australian, George P. Floyd. He held the domain until the end of 2017, and in early 2018 the domain dropped.

It was caught by DropCatch, and although we can’t tell if it was a single bid or an auction, the domain ended up in the possession of domain investor Matthew Klein.

On May 28th, 2020, the domain GeorgeFloyd.com went into WHOIS privacy and was listed on Afternic for several days.

Today, WHOIS changed to an entity called Whitewall3 LLC and a “Susan Medes” as the registrant. It’s very possible that GeorgeFloyd.com was just sold on Afternic.

According to ProjectManagement.com:

“As Chief Operating Officer & Chief Consultant with Whitewall3 LLC, Suzanne Medes is building an innovative business improvement organization that consistently delivers results for real business challenges.”

The web site of Whitewall3 LLC is Whitewall3.com and it’s parked at GoDaddy. The New Jersey based LLC shows that it was formed in 2010 according to LinkedIn, but New Jersey records show 2017 as the year for entity #0450173433. The latter matches the domain’s registration date in 2017.

The impact of George Floyd’s murder is being felt globally.

There is no doubt that GeorgeFloyd.com – in the right hands – would be best used as a foundation for the elimination of police brutality and the advancement of racial equality in the US.
