So the rumors were true. Facebook has finally announced acquiring Instachecker.com via MarkMonitor, the Internet brand-protection company. However, according to a report by Fusible, the URL cannot be considered a website yet.
The report from Fusible states that Instachecker.com was registered in May 2012 for the first time. Since the domain’s previous owner used privacy service Whois, the details of the price at which the social network purchased the URL cannot be found.
Fusible hint the reason for Facebook purchasing the domain is an attempt to protect Instagram, Facebook’s photo-sharing application. Here, the point to be noted is that Instacheker.net, Instacheker.org, and other similar URLs are still up for grabs in the market.
