Disney snags dozens of new DVC-related websites

Disney recently registered a slew of new Internet domain names with relevance to their Disney Vacation Club business unit.  

Disney Vacation Club

Internet domain names are the plain text addresses used to reach a website.  Disney.com, DisneyVacationClub.com, DVCNews.com are all unique Internet domains.  

Registering a domain name also happens to be a relatively cheap venture, costing just a few dollars per year for each unique address.  As such, it's not uncommon for large companies to register dozens or hundreds of addresses.  While they may not actively use all of the addresses, registering it secures ownership and helps companies protect their intellectual property.  After all, Disney may not want anyone else publishing a website at the address DisneyVacationClubCopperCreek.com, which is why they scooped it up for themselves.

Following is a list of some of the recent addresses claimed by Disney:

aulanidvc.net
aulaniresortvillas.com
aulaniresortvillas.net
aulanivillas.com
aulanivillas.net
boulderridgeresortdvc.net

disneyvacationclubhiltonhead.net
disneyvacationclubincentives.com
disneyvacationclubincentives.net
disneyvacationclubjambo.com
disneyvacationclubjambo.net
disneyvacationclubkidani.com
disneyvacationclubkidani net

A random sampling suggests that none of these domains are currently in active use.  Many may never be used, or they could simply redirect to the main Disney Vacation Club marketing website.  But as long as Disney continues to renew the domain registration, these websites--and many more--are reserved for any future use.

I know very little about domain names, do you have to pay a service to determine if a domain is in use?

You have to pay to have a domain name but it's really, really, cheap.
