Until recently, iCloud.com was a domain name and a
storage-as-a-cloud service owned by Linkoping, Sweden-based
desktop-as-a-service company, Xcerion. Xcerion’s iCloud service
has just been rebranded to CloudMe, and the company acquired the
CloudMe.com domain on April 5, 2011.
My source, who is familiar with the company, says that Xcerion has
sold the domain to Apple for about $4.5 million. Xcerion hasn’t
responded to my queries as yet. At the time of writing, the Whois
database showed Xcerion as the owner of iCloud.
