10 solid brandable domains for cloud startups, all .COMs, all under $5k

cloud startups

I was recently talking to a friend who runs a startup that helps companies save money on cloud hosting, they’re in the market for a new domain and she said to me – “ugh, everyone has registered all the good cloud domains and now they’re all $10,000+”

I told her she was wrong, then showed her BrandBucket and I think her head almost exploded. Their budget is in the $2,500 – $5,000 range and they were about to give up, that’s definitely not the case any more.

Since I know she’s not alone I thought I’d highlight some of the cloud-related brandable domains on BrandBucket, and don’t worry, there’s enough good options on there that if someone buys one she’s not going to be without a good domain. All of these domains pass both the radio and billboard test which are two important tests in my book. If you don’t know what these are, here ya go:

Radio test – can you tell someone your domain (i.e. if someone hear your name on the radio or from a friend) can they remember it and spell it correctly. One example of a domain that doesn’t pass the radio test is CloudPhame.com. Think about it…most people would go to CloudFame.com, radio test failed!

Billboard test – someone’s driving down the highway, they see a billboard with your domain on it, can they easily remember it so when they finally park they can get to your site?

If your domain doesn’t pass these two tests you’ll find yourself potentially losing customers. Okay, enough from me, now onto the domains!

CloudState.com – $4,995

HonestCloud.com – $4,995

CloudCog.com – $3,490

MuscleCloud.com – $4,995

CloudSiren.com – $3,955

BrewCloud.com – $3,495

CloudResponse.com – $3,495

PickCloud.com – $2,335

CloudAbbey.com – $3,225

FierceCloud.com – $2,895

Oh and in case you’re not familiar with BrandBucket, any domain that you buy from them comes with a logo, hence the name brand bucket, you’re getting the complete brand which makes it easy to get started right away.

What’s your favorite name on the list?

    Surely available names can be found as good as those. They are very ordinary sounding names. Musclecloud.com? Fiercecloud.com?

    How about AffordableCloud.com for $1,699 only?

    It’s actually more related to your friend’s startup than any other domain of your list.

    FierceCloud is a good name??? You’re kidding right? Go ask 10 people how to spell “fierce” and 5 won’t be correct – These names are terrible – as bad as some of mine. . Besides if a company takes a “cloud” name then they are stuck to that space.

    Yeah cloud domains def aren’t all registered. Brandroot.com also has tons of cloud-style business names.
