BQDN Rebrands as

Earlier this morning, domain broker James Booth announced that his brokerage is rebranding. His company, formerly known as BQDN, has been rebranded as

I think is a great domain name, and I also think will serve the company well as a brand. Not only is the domain name meaningful as a brokerage brand, but it also helps to illustrate the story that powerful one word .com domain names can serve as brands. I am sure James’ rationale was similar to mine when I launched as a .com marketplace to sell my own domain names.

Personally, I think is a more memorable brand name than the one that has been used. That said, I think James Booth has built his own personal brand over the past few years, so the overall branding of is probably more important for the end user buyers and domain name sellers rather than his domain industry colleagues.

    • I can understand your thought. The DN probably means “domain name”; I’m not sure what BQ means.

      This case reminds me of a website called GGRG. The GG probably is the abbreviation of the CEO’s name; I’m not sure what RG means.
