The Domain Lend.com is For Sale

Lend.com Domain Name

The domain name is such an important part of a company’s branding strategy. Many entrepreneurs choose company names based purely on the availability of the .com domain. Now, here is a chance to have probably the most sought after domain in our industry: Lend.com.

The owner of this domain name has contacted me asking if I know anyone interested in buying it. They are entertaining offers of $2 million or more. Clearly, this is not going to be appealing to many of the scrappy startups in our industry but as this industry goes more mainstream some deeper pockets are coming in. Maybe Goldman Sachs should buy it.

If you are interested all the information is at Lend.com.

This name has been on the block for a while. Highly doubt they get that much for it.

Great name…but for who? Lend.com isn’t a great name to use to market to a borrower. So it would have to be used on the other side of the equation. For a platform it could make sense.

Peter – You may want to consider adding a section on your website allowing p2p URL for-sale ads to be posted. May I suggest the name “Peters List”.

Yep. They contacted us. Hefty price. Low yield for us.

As mentioned, likely good for a bigger platform but they have borrower issues and thus of limited value.

Going along with Peter’s List – the list could include lending platforms and how much they have transacted and returns to investors perhaps??
