Zynga registers slew of domain names following announcement of new games

Dream Zoo

On the day Zynga announced a “gaggle of new social games“, it registered well over 150 domain names as part of its intellectual property strategy.

The defensive domain registrations center around Project Z, Castleville, Zynga Bingo, Zynga Casino, Hidden Chronicles, Dream Zoo and Mafia Wars 2.

The domains include typical defensive registrations like Dreamzoosucks.com and wwwzyngabingo.com, but among the list of names are hints of other games for its newly created Zynga Casino franchise such as zyngacraps.com, zyngadice.com, zyngakeno.com, zyngapaigowpoker.com and zyngaroulette.com.

The names also point to which devices and platforms the new games may be available on such as ZyngaBingoGoogleplus and Dreamzooipad.com.

It’s unknown whether Zynga owns the matching names to each new game like Castleville.com, which The Domains wrote about yesterday.  As Mike Berkens noted in the article, the domain was registered to someone in Shangha China using Tucows.com until August 8th, when it went under privacy at Godaddy.com.  The name has now transferred name servers from domaincontrol.com to cotdns.net as of today, signalling a website may be unveiled shortly, as well as the owner.

Over the last year Zynga has improved its domain buying methods in order to keep its unreleased games a secret, including using a generic Yahoo! email address when registering names.

Here’s the full list of domains Zynga registered through the brand protection company MarkMonitor.
