Startups Love Venture

Whatsmyip logo

I remember back in the early 00's when talking to friends about potential domain names that's been taken for years but never really used; parked domains with ridiculous prices making it impossible to acquire them. Whatsmyip.com was one of those dream names. Thanks Venture for making it possible for me to acquire my dream domain!

Having a one-word domain adds huge credibility to our brand and trust to our customers. Velour.com helps reinforce our brand identify and makes us more discoverable. Working with Venture is easy and efficient.

Awning logo

Being a real estate startup, we understand that location is everything. That is why we chose to work with Venture! They were easy to work with, amenable to our needs, and we were able to pay for our domain over time instead of eating into our runway from a one time purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Venture?

Venture is a perpetual rights leasing platform for domain names. Our mission is to help the next generation of startups create amazing brands.

Why are some contracts so highly expensive?

Premium brandable domains, like prime real estate, can be worth up to millions of dollars, and its value is reflected in its contract.

Can I buy the domain instead?

Venture.com is a digital lease-only platform because we want to protect the domain ecology of the web. However, you may contact the Domain Owner via Whois to inquire if a sale is possible.

Can I cancel anytime?

Yes. It’s free to cancel your contract at any time for any reason. You will not be reimbursed for the payment period you cancel. For more details please read our refund policy.

How do I change name servers?

Submit your name servers when you apply or via your account. Once the Domain Owner has transferred the domain to Venture, it may take 24-72 hours to update.

Can I lose the domain?

Venture's model has been designed with your brand's longterm success in mind. It guarantees you exclusive rights to lease the domain indefinitely. The Owner cannot cancel for convenience. Therefore, it is contingent upon your end of the agreement being kept by paying on time and not infringing on any trademark with the domain.

What happens if the domain owners sells the domain?

The new domain owner will be required to agree to your existing lease agreement terms and conditions. This means you will continue with your exclusive rights to use the domain.

What happens if I want to sell my business?

You will be able to transfer/assign your perpetual rights lease to the new owner of the business built on the domain. We have already executed a number of these assignments.

What is the compensation payment?

The Compensation Payment is a form of assurance to the Owner for the loss of the domain name. This would only apply to you if you conduct illegal activities such as blatant trademark infringement. It is calculated based on 250 multiplied by the Original Monthly Fee, or then-current Monthly Fee, whichever is greater.

How can I list my domain names?

Listings are by invitation only.
