Initially this site is owned by Echo Bay Technology Group, Omidyar consulting firm. Omidyar had tried to register a domain name EchoBay.com but that name is owned by another person, so he cut short name ebay.com. eBay is based in San Jose, California, Meg Whitman has become president and CEO of eBay since March of 1998.
