Conan O'Brien and FOX - Tangled Webs

1/19/2010 7:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conan O'Brien has not united online with FOX ... at least according to FOX.

Conan O'Brien and FOX - Tangled Webs

Even though CONANONFOX.COM was registered under the name Twentieth Century Fox last week, FOX now says it had nothing to do with either the domain name or the corresponding Twitter account.

In fact, the registered owner has now been changed. According to register.com, which lists website registrations, the owner now shows up as Domains By Proxy, Inc.

For the record, Domains by Proxy, Inc., is a generic company designed to shield the identity of the real owner. And -- get this -- now when you go to CONANONFOX.COM, it links to FOXSHOP.COM. So who is the real owner?

Stay tuned ...

EVERY MOM told US to follow your dream & never never give it up....Someone who dreamed "all his life" to be a Tonigt show host & they told him yes, you will be it. then they told him don't even dream to be one eventhough you can be.
and actually, he did have abilities to do so & totally proved it continuously even 'till now. Now, they want to paid off his broken dlife time dream for just 40 millions? everyone knows even 60millions is cheap deal for Life time dream buy off. Do you sell your soul for just 40millions? Do you sell your mother's life for 40 millions then? That's not right at all. It is totally jerk & we should smash those who are mean money spirited dictatorship EXECS who scammed all the money from us & too many talents in pasts . Let REAL-STARWARS REALLY BEGIN!!

Domains By Proxy is a private registration service, a middle man so people can't see who owns it without a court order or something... All they did was turn on the private registration feature and now the real identity is hidden to the rest of us.

Domains by proxy just means that someone set it to private registration. It does not mean the owner changed.

Domains By Proxy is a service that allows you to shield an owner from the public WHOIS services, that list site contacts. It is very VERY possible that Fox still owns the site but just doesn't want anyone to be able to confirm it. WHOIS.NET still shows that the registrant for that site is Intellectual Property Department (TCFFC).

ConanOnFox.com now takes you to FoxShop.com rather than the Twitter page, so it seems like Fox DOES INDEED own it.

Plus I don't think someone could register the domain with Fox's info like that. Seems like Fox is denying it for some reason or doesn't know they really own it.

I'm guessing Fox doesn't use GoDaddy. Someone probably put phony registrant information that they copied from another Fox-owned domain.

It's fake. When you go to the address now, it redirects to the Fox Shop, WITH an affiliate ID, meaning the person who registered it is just profiting off of the Fox affiliate program.

I wish this was real, but it clearly isn't.
