Why Startups Love Venture
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!
As an early stage business in a market where trust is paramount, choosing a high-quality .com domain-name from Venture.com gave us the legitimacy we needed to prove out our business model, acquire our first customers and ultimately build a brand that we can be proud of well into the future.
I'm very happy with Venture's service. It's a gift from God! Wasn't sure how to showcase my products, but now I have one of the best domains for my product category. Having a category defining domain name really does give us the edge. For me, it makes sense to get the exclusive right to a top-notch domain rather than registering a sub-par one. FunnyTshirts.com is so easy to remember and doesn't need an explanation.”
As a Mobile Gaming startup company we have to ensure that we’re allocating our capital to things that really matter. Our investment in acquiring the rights to use PlayGame.com via Venture.com is by far the best decision to date.
Not only was the Venture team super helpful and knowledgeable in the domain name industry, but they gave us a peace of mind and ease to transact, so that we can focus on more important things: Making great games for the world.
Finally having the 'PlayGame.com' logo on our marketing arsenal is a game changer. Although our Touchten brand had been established for some time, people didn’t necessarily connect the name to what we do. Now with Playgame.com, no one will ever question that. And that’s amazing…
Our brand 'Yuso' matters a lot to us. In addition to our home country domain, we defensively bought other extensions. As a start-up, the .com domain remained elusive until Venture.com provided us the opportunity to lease it with their innovative model.
Premium domains are so hard to come by these days and they're not cheap. As a small business owner, Venture has provided me the opportunity to lease a highly brandable domain at an affordable price. I'm grateful for Venture's professional service and their pool of top level domains.
As both an entrepreneur and investor who appreciates the true value of a good domain when launching a new business, I have spent more than 20 years waiting for someone to elegantly create a domain leasing platform like this. I can’t remember how many times I have tried to convince an individual domain owner to lease their domain, but it was almost always too complicated to set up a low stress long term lease for both sides. Venture.com has executed this domain leasing service with perfection and solved one of the greatest problems between entrepreneurs and domain owners. Finally, visionary cash sensitive startup entrepreneurs can give their new business a world class brand from day 1 to maximize their chance of success. And finally, long term domain investors can safely and simply realize the true value of their domain investments.
Having a one-word domain ('velour.com') adds credibility to our brand and trust to our customers. Velour.com helps reinforce our brand identity and makes us more discoverable. Working with Venture is easy and efficient.
I have been a fan of Venture.com’s model for quite some time, having bought domains in the 6-figures, I understand the value of a memorable domain that can become a brand. Securing a high-quality domain name from venture.com has accelerated the authority and traction of my business.
Venture is the only domain platform that I’ve worked with that was able to create a win-win partnership. They have followed through on their commitments and been great to work with.
When we found out the domain was for lease and not purchase I was actually quite hesitant, as the business model seemed ripe to take advantage of new companies (eg. lease for a low rate on a monthly basis until the company makes it big, then crank up the price). But it turned out that pricing is locked in upfront. Furthermore, it was actually quite simple to transfer my lease to a new business, which was another concern. Overall, I was happy to lease, which ended in a smooth transfer.
I have leased several very high profile domain names through Venture.com and have been exceedingly pleased with their service. Leasing through Venture.com provides the domain security I need to build brands, while also freeing up funds to build businesses rather than sinking money into a domain purchase. In addition, I must say that their team is extremely attentive, professional, and detail-oriented. I would highly recommend Venture.com to anyone looking for an exceptional domain name.
Venture.com is the ideal way to explore new projects for a startup. If you’re early stage they have flexible pricing options, and you’re not locked into long term leases. That makes it the ideal partner for a startup exploring new ideas.
