When creating a startup, choosing a name is a critical first step. While the frustrations of the process will undoubtedly be memorable, nothing beats that moment of overwhelming joy when a selection is finally made.
But getting to that point of happiness requires a fair bit of determination. Coming up with a name that will represent your business may challenge you; your creativity can drop to an all-time low. To help find that perfect name and domain, Dock Name is there for you.
The service helps startups find a domain name by describing their business/product in a simple, concise manner. Based on these descriptions, Dock Name then acquires proposals from people who possess suitable domains for their needs. Because a domain should be well represented in a brand name, using Dock Name can check off two items on a startup’s list: outfitting the company with a domain, and potentially providing a name. As such, Dock Name could be a great way to build a creative list of suitable options.
After possible domain proposals are made, the crowd is called upon once again to vote up suggestions, but the final decision is left to the original startup looking for options. However, there is no obligation to buy any domain. Dock Name doesn’t handle the negotiations between a requester and the seller; it just connects them.
With 100,000 domains registered every day, it can seem like that perfect domain name has already taken. This sour feeling can be doubly disappointing for a brand that will live as a web application. With very few decent aftermarket options for selling existing domains, Dock Name provides a unique opportunity for sellers and those looking for a domain and a name that fit their needs.
