During the early days of the pandemic in 2020, Zoom became a household brand name. People were able to communicate across the world via the Zoom platform. One notable thing about Zoom was the company used a ccTLD domain name – Zoom.us – for its website.
Smartly, in 2018, Zoom was able to acquire its brand match Zoom.com domain name. The acquisition price for Zoom.com was reportedly $2 million, as recorded by Namebio. Andrew Rosener sold Zoom.com to the platform. This turned out to be a prescient acquisition given the hockey stick-like growth seen by Zoom as quarantines spread across the world and working from home became the norm.
