Over the past year we have seen digital innovation take center stage as we continue to transform into a digital-first economy. One of the popular domain extensions leading that digital race is .cloud. Is .cloud for startups? Yes. It is for household names? Yes. Is it for nephologists!? Obviously, yes!
Check out these 7 modern businesses using a .cloud domain name to highlight their innovation.
powercloud is the energy industry’s leading platform for simplified processing and billing services. Say goodbye to inflexible and outdated IT and hello a new energy standard you won’t soon forget.
By combining the strong keyword such as “power” with the domain .cloud, the brand successfully created a pretty unforgettable domain name — one that sounds like a modern-day superhero and packs an energizing punch! POWERCLOUD! BLAM!
A global leader in cloud solutions with an exceptional focus on innovation, blue.cloud helps enterprises migrate to the cloud. They offer the full sweep of services to simplify, modernize, and digitalize businesses.
As far as domain names go, blue.cloud is short, memorable, and comes with a satisfying visual (a sweet little blue cloud drifting by simplifying all your operations). Plus, the color blue in the tech world has come to be associated with trust and intelligence. Think of all the leading tech brands you know well, there’s a good chance blue is at least part of their logo (and if not, just think of another so my point still stands). I could lead you down a lengthy road of reasons why brands often opt for blue, but I’ll leave that for another post.
All to say — blue.cloud is a noteworthy domain that hits all the industry marks with just two compelling words.
ScreenCloud provides digital signage for smart organizations. Makes sense right? Digital screens. ScreenCloud. We love to see it. Insider knowledge: screen.cloud was the first ever .cloud domain to go live back in 2015 as part of the .Cloud Registry’s pre-launch campaign.
Watching this early stage startup transform into a sustainable and global business shows just how far the right domain name can take you. They weren’t afraid to select a new top-level domain over a more traditional domain choice, and for them, it definitely paid off!
Alchemy is an enterprise SaaS company that develops software to help modernize the specialty chemicals industry. As a company that powers the digital lab of the future, a modern domain name was a must.
Here’s another example of combining a powerful keyword with a tech-forward domain extension like .cloud to create a highly memorable domain name. As a company that accelerates digital transformation in the chemicals industry and is built on modern technology such as AI, Alchemy.cloud is equal parts magical and modern. Cue the bubbling beaker.
ReportingCloud enables developers to create documents with simple HTTP requests. We love to see .cloud leveraged for the developer audience.
ReportingCloud is the brainchild of Text Control, a leading vendor of word processing and reporting components for Windows, web and mobile development technologies. As a SaaS product specializing in reporting and templates, it makes perfect sense to brand their product Reporting.cloud. Simple, straightforward, and highly effective — that’s what the best domain names are all about!
This one is for all our internet-lingo-savvy folks (and Reddit aficionados). We had to include one objectively fun domain name into the lineup, and tldr.cloud was our top pick.
For those unfamiliar with the acronym, “tl;dr” (with or without the semicolon) is internet speak for “too long; didn’t read,” used to signal a summary of the original lengthy post.
Tldr.cloud has morphed this Reddit-born concept into a browser extension that offers concise summaries of the day’s top news. Now that’s one domain name that just makes perfect sense.
tl;dr: Cool name for a cool site.
Here’s another promising personal app that‘s currently in beta. Golf.cloud is your all-inclusive clubhouse for everything golf — including stats, analytics, coaching and news. That’s all we know for now! But we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes on this one. Did someone say, “Fore”!?
