The name of your startup is critically important to its success, and in this email I am going to help you land an amazing name.Think of Google, Yahoo, EBAY, Mahalo, Meetup, Yammer and Mint -- are all six letters or under, generally easy to spell and certainly unique. This is not a coincidence.
Landing a short dotcom domain name in 2010 isn’t easy, but it’s certainly not impossible. I know this because I was able to buy Mahalo.com for $11,000, aday.com for $30,000, 20.com for $70,000, ThisWeekIn.com for $15,000 and Kokua.com for $7,000.
