Marksmen's sales division, NameQuiver

Marksmen, the IP and brand protection company, who made headlines in June after co-brokering the sale of for $2.6 million, appears to have just acquired a related domain for one of its clients.

Whois records for the short four-letter domain name,, switched from YummyNames (by Tucows) to Marksmen this week.

Being that Marksmen’s sales division, NameQuiver, just co-brokered to an undisclosed buyer, the name could have been acquired for the same client to use as an URL shortening service.

I’ve contacted Marksmen for further information and will update this post when I can.
