The .VC Domain

Vc So, I recently came across a website that was from St. Vincent -- and I noticed that it had a .VC domain extension.  And I learned that you can indeed register a .VC domain name.  So, I'm now the proud owner of firstround.vc and redeye.vc.   (I sent an email to the NVCA two months ago, suggesting that they cut a deal with the .VC registrar so every venture firm gets their own domain -- but I didn't hear back.  They're probably too busy trying to keep my tax bill low ;-)

Now if there was only a .startup domain extension, everyone would clearly know what side you're on ;-)

How about:
.st – São Tomé and Príncipe

Though I quite like the idea of being www.newco.um

Here is business pitch...

Buy all those domain names with .vc (e.g. sequoia) with .vc and then sell them for few hundred thousand dollars...

Possible Response from Josh:
Might be late, after reading my post they might have did that.

:) anyways, my joy of pitching to you.

Josh, thanks for the business to NamesBeyond (www.namesbeyond.com) for .VC domain name registrations - we think this is a terrific name for VCs. Would love to chat about connecting with the NVCA and provision .VCs to the industry ... Uma Murali, CEO/NamesBeyond, uma@namesbeyond.com

Josh - you mentioned a .startup domain extension. We actually own startup.vc and the domain is currently for sale or lease. We have a few others if you're interested (technology.vc, internet.vc, etc.).

Its interesting reading what the VC community discuss about the online communities. I think this recent move from FB shows that the original developers are still involved.

I am the owner of pitch.vc I have been approached several times to sell the domain.
Any interested in buying this domain please email me with an offer. francis.romeo@gmail.com
