"Do you know how many companies have “Sumo” in their name? It’s a lot. You wouldn’t believe how many times someone has come up to me and said, “Oh, are you also like (completely unrelated to us) sumo?”. Ultimately, $1.5 million is a lot to spend on a domain. But Sumo is a brand we will have forever. I’ve come around on the importance of branding because it shows our customers, future employees and competition that we’re serious and here to stay."
Noah Kagan, Co-founder of Sumo.com, brand upgrade from Sumome.com for $1.5 million
Aaron Patzer, founder of Mint (the idea was an abbreviation of « Money Intelligence ») purchased the domain mymint.com for about $3,000 of his own money prior to raising any venture funding as he couldn’t afford Mint.com. Later on the owner of the domain didn't want to sell and couldn't be convinced by any sum. Eventually he settled for 3% of the company to acquire the domain. At the closing sale of Mint.com, that was worth $8.1 million.

"Other people can sell pillows, but no one can come in and be pillows.com. Brand is key. Having a one-word category killer name as our brand has been everything for us. I would call it more of a capital purchase. We easily got our return for what we paid for the name very quickly."

“ At the end of the day, to me, a domain name is essentially a huge part of your brand. There’s the level of professionalism that comes across when you have a strong domain name, because it implies that you are very, very serious about your business and so I’m a big believer in a solid domain. "
Sol Orwell, bought www.examine.com for $40k
