Tucows. Darth Vader. Elves Project. Need I Say More?


Thirty-five years after the release of the first Star Wars film, the domain name has found its rightful home with George Lucas' Lucasfilm Ltd. That is thanks to one gallant, sci-fi geek at Tucows Inc.

"Star Wars had a profound impact on me as a child," said Tucows Domain Portfolio Vice President Bill Sweetman, wearing a long brown robe and cheerfully tapping the Darth Vader bobblehead on his desk. "The moment I spotted in a list of deleting domain names, I knew Tucows had to find a way to get this iconic domain name into the right hands. I knew I was its only hope," Sweetman added.

Tucows quickly donated the domain name to Lucasfilm. In exchange, Lucasfilm agreed to make a donation to the Tucows Elves Project, an annual charitable effort organized by Tucows staff to provides toys to the children of lower-income families in the Parkdale neighborhood adjacent to the Tucows Toronto office.

"We're thrilled to be the new owners of and we are even more excited about supporting such a worthy cause. We regret having to refuse Bill's request that we deliver the children's toys in the Millennium Falcon. It was heartbreaking having to explain to him that it's not real."
- Miles Perkins, Spokesperson for Lucasfilm
