Why We Love Brandable Domain Names

(Update – “A day without learning is a day wasted” as the old adage goes.

Since we’ve started this site some years ago we’ve learned a lot and one of the biggest things we’ve learned is that the term “Brandable Domain Name” tends to be a very Domain Name Industry insider thing and means absolutely nothing to anyone trying to start a business.

If you’re starting a Garden Shop, Tire Store, Advertising Agency or even an IT Tech Company, you have no idea what a “brandable” is and nor should you.  We’re the experts in our field and you on yours (We can’t tell the difference between and azalea and a rhododendron!).

So, going forward, after speaking with some of your clients we feel we’ve settled on a happy middle ground; brandable domain names are now being called “Multiple Industry Domain Names” or “Multi-Industry Domains.”

These are still the same great domain names that will… work across multiple industries, are fresh and exciting and can really make a splash. We’re sorry for all the confustion and we hope this helps everyone looking for a eye-catching domain name for their new business!


The Get Domainer Team loves brandable domain names and we think that if you’re going to get a domain name, a brandable domain name is quite possibly the way to go.  But what is it about the brandable domain names that we love so much, what exactly is a “brandable” domain and why would a brandable domain name work for you?

The idea behind a brandable domain name is that it doesn’t mean anything.  Some of the brandable domain names may have partial words while some of them may have some roots in Greek or Latin origins or even have some meaning in other languages but, as they stand they have no really meaning in the English language.   They are in all purposes meaningless.

Now you might be asking yourself, “why would I get a domain name that is meaningless when I want people to know what I’m doing.”  Our question to you would be, “If you were able to find that perfect domain name, what are you doing here?”  The fact remains that most domain names that are descriptive and short, those “perfect domain names” are either already taken or if you can find them and they’re for sale they’re extremely expensive.

The beauty of the brandable domain name is that are some still available and they are ready to for you to make something out of them.  The Get Domainer team likes to refer to brandable domain names to sand in a sandbox.  The domain names are just waiting for you to mold them into sandcastles, fish, stars, cars or whatever and make them as big and beautiful as you like.  What was “yahoo” before it was “Yahoo” or “google” before “Google” the list goes on and on.

Another bonus of getting a brandable domain name is that when it comes time to TradeMark the name, if you’re developing this domain name into a company, business or product is that there is less chance that you’ll find a similar name within you Classification of Goods and Services as established by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO.Gov).  Getting a brandable domain will make your life easier when that time comes.

    That’s pretty interesting. I never thought of that but, i bet it would come in handy when you go to trademark a name that the name is not like anything else in your field.

    Cool post.

      Thanks for the comment. Yes, one of the nice things about the brandable domain names is that there is often less of an issue when looking to trademark your name. Generally speaking, people in an industry have similar names. They are all clustered together which makes it difficult to get a trademark that is around the same area, it also makes it difficult to stand out. A brandable domain name like the ones on this site a clearly differentiated from the rest of the pack.

      Thanks again for your comment.

    It’s a cool thought but it’s going to take some time for people know what you do by the name if there is no meaning behind it. You’re going to have to spend a lot of time educating the public about your product if they don’t know what you do.

    The point about having less trouble trademarking the name has got to be helpful though. It would stand out as well, i guess.

      Thanks for your comment Larry.

      Your point that it will take time for people to understand what your business is when you use a brandable domain name is and accurate one. We feel that in conjecture with a good logo, perhaps with a tagline describing your business you’ll bring awareness to your business and products. It will take time to realize what you are. You should blog and use your logo to bring awareness but we feel that the positives far outweigh the negatives.

      Because it is a different domain name your company or product will stand out in the crowd and as we said in the past, when the time comes to Trademark the name you will probably have less of a hard time getting approved within your Classification.

      We find these bradable domain names are a great get for anyone looking to start a business.

      Thanks for your comment.

    I heard someone say that brandable domain names are like pulling letters out of a bag almost like a game of scrabble but I don’t think so. You just can’t have a bunch of letters together, they need to fit and flow nicely.

    I love “brandables” as well, thanks for the post.

      Wow thanks, we could not have said it better ourselves. It’s true there are a lot of people that developing a brandable domain name is like pulling letters out of a scrabble bag but if it were only so easy! As we point out in our other post, that many brandable domain names have roots or are “rooted” with words in either Greek or Latin.

      As you so wisely pointed out, pulling out letters does not mean that word or domain will not have a good flow or cadence to them. All of the domain names that a company should get, should be easy on the tongue, easy to say and easy to remember and that is the wonderful world of brandable domain names.

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment!
