The Difference between Brand Names and Domain Names

The Difference between Brand Names and Domain Names

There seems to be a lot of confusion online around the difference between a brand name and a domain name. Recently there has been many new marketplaces started offering brandable domain names, but we are doing it a little different. To be one of the first to submit names you can

But what exactly is a brandable domain name and why is it not enough to create a brand?

What makes a Name into a Brand?

Basically a name is just that, a name. A name doesn’t become a brand until someone puts a voice behind it. That can be a company, an group of people, an individual, etc. When a name stands for something and develops values, characteristics, a purpose, and starts to behave and act in a certain way it becomes a brand. Can a generic domain become a brand? Yes. All names can become a brand. Take for example. Generic domain and one of the largest brands on the planet. However it is far cheaper and cost effective if you are starting a small business to find a short unique name that is made up like That way if your entire business changes or your company moves into a different market, you add services, etc. you don’t have to change your name. is an example of a brandable domain name. So what makes a good brandable domain name?

Qualities of a Good Brandable Domain Name

1. It’s unique
2. It allows the company to expand
3. It’s easy to say, spell, and remember

Why a .com domain extension is the best for Brand Names

The .com extension is the default domain name extension for brand names and there is good reason why. The best way to explain it is that if your brand name was socially, your matching domain name in customers minds would automatically be and not Yes, the customer is always right does apply in this case. So why isn’t a matching brand name and why wouldn’t customers think of it first?

.com domains have an advantage over .whatever names

1.Default for Word of Mouth Marketing 
2. Big Brands use .com
3. Reputation and Trust

Word of Mouth Marketing

Word of Mouth marketing is very important not only offline, but online as well. In the previous example of, internet users would end up going to because the period is removed from the extension when it’s entered into online editors and when there is no extension on a domain name customers assume it’s a .com. Most customers are not tech savvy and don’t care to be. They’ll simply copy and paste your name into Google and / or just add .com to the end. Now if you don’t own the .com and a competitor does, that’s just bad news for your business because you’ll be fighting for ranking forever. However, companies that have a unique .com domain will enjoy far less competition.

.com is the default for everything

Spellcheck programs built into operating systems and online web editors automatically remove the period in new TLD extensions like .ly so your brand name becomes swiftly instead of On the other hand these same spellcheck programs not only recognize .com but automatically create a link to the website.

The iphone and ipad have a .com button. If you click it you can choose from a dropdown list of other top level extension like .net and .org, but the fact that .com is the default and only takes one click says a lot about .coms value.

Big Brands use .com

Bitly started out with their domain name as, but soon changed it to Now the version is redirected to the .com version.

Uber was very smart in their purchase and bought for 2% of the company and was valued at the time for $1 million dollars. Then they also bought for $36,000. They currently don’t own

Twitch is a large video gaming community and they actually own It is very likely that they will by from it’s current owner which is currently enjoying a big boost of traffic to his website from people looking for

Buying a .com is about Reputation and Trust

That’s great and all, but I know what you’re thinking: “What about all the new tech startups that use other domain extensions?” Well, each extensions comes with a level of trust. The more an extension is used in a particular industry the more it is recognized to belong to that industry. Tech startups use a lot of .ly and .io extensions. Small businesses were supposed to use .biz but it never caught on. Why? Because those small businesses didn’t want to look small, they wanted to use .com because it’s already associated with big business, authority, trust, and instant recognition. The fact is that .com has more trust than a .whatever extension because it has been around longer and been used more. It’s the same reason that hyphen domains are less trustworthy no matter the extension because they have been heavily used by scammers and spammers.

It’s not all about the web traffic you will be loosing, it’s about brand reputation. Every large brand knows that in todays world it only takes 1 customer to have a bad experience to put a tarnish on your brand. If you don’t own the .com extension and a scammer / spammer does own it, they could ruin your brand in a matter of seconds. Then all it takes is that customer that got scammed to vent their story on social media. You didn’t create the scam, your company is not scamming people, but your brand is now ruined and you’ll have to start over and sometimes re-brand. Suing the scammer is not always enough to regain the trust of your customers. Look at all the security breaches with big brands like Target and spoof emails that try to pretend to be Facebook, PayPal, and more. These are real threats to not only the consumers but to the trust they put in the brands they are entrusting with their money, information, and sometimes entire online life.

Which is why a lot of new companies prefer to get a made up name like in the .com extension over choosing a more recognizable name in a less recognized extension like

If you want to dominate a market, you will eventually buy the .com version of your domain name. It shows that you have arrived, that your brand cares about it’s reputation, that you have enough resources to invest in a .com domain name and that you’re company is established, competitive, and is not going anywhere.
