Apple registers 50 web domains following WWDC introductions

updated 04:20 pm EDT, Thu June 9, 2011

Registrations cover minor interface elements

Apple has registered 50 new domain names in the aftermath of its WWDC keynote, according to DotWeekly. All of them are related to products revealed this week, including iCloud, iOS 5 and OS X Lion. Like some other high-profile companies, Apple casts a wide net when registering domains in order to prevent rivals and scam artists from drawing page views.

The new addresses in Apple's possession range from obvious choices to ones concentrating on seemingly minute aspects of its products. The company now owns itunesmatching.com and itunesinthecloud.com, for instance, but also airplaymirroring.com, macgestures.com, osxresume.com and pcfreeipad.com. The biggest related domain purchases came before WWDC in the form of icloud.com and icloud.org. The deal may have cost Apple as much as $4.5 million.
