Domain Name Strategy of Apple, Most Valuable Global Company

Domain Mondo thought it would be interesting to look at the domain name strategy of the most valuable company--NASDAQ: AAPL current market cap over $773 billion (USD)--as well as being the most valuable brand, with the most successful and hottest tech products in the world, headquartered in Silicon Valley, Cupertino, California, APPLE INC., as a follow-on to the previous two posts about Apple--see: Apple Earnings Report, The Great, The Good, The Bad (video); and The Apple Watch: Jony Ive and Marc Newson, British Vogue Interview Video.

See what one can do with just one dot COM domain name? Of course, Apple Inc. is registrant of thousands of other domains used for various corporate purposes around the world, but the above gives one an insight of the principal domain name strategy used by the most successful company in the world and some of the "smartest people in the Valley."

Oh, Domain Mondo almost forgot--new gTLDs? Apple Inc. applied (defensively) for only one name in ICANN's unwanted, unneeded, predatory money-grab, shakedown scheme of large Trademark holders: .APPLE (undelegated, unused as of this date).
