Namecheap has acquired some exceptional descriptive domain names. I wrote about the company’s $150,000 acquisition of Cluster.com as well as Wolf.com for $550,000. Namecheap also acquired Poke.com and IZ.com last year. One acquisition I did not write about but noticed in May is Relate.com.
This morning, Namecheap announced a small business-focused suite of tools the company branded Relate by Namecheap. In coordination with this launch, Relate.com forwards to the landing page with these tools on Namecheap’s website. The company did not need to have Relate.com for this suite of tools, but it’s nice to see a valuable generic domain name like this being used.
I reached out to Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall to see if he is able to share the acquisition price of Relate.com. If he is willing and able, I will update the article with the acquisition price. Update: Richard told me the price was $95,000 and the domain name was acquired in February of 2021.
