Xiong Mao has a long domain. Here are some upgrade options.
Would you like to have a dancing Panda deliver a birthday cake to your child at home?
Xiong Mao (熊猫=Panda) is a birthday cake specialist founded in 2018. You can order a birthday cake online and then have it delivered to your home within 3 hours. The dispatcher arrives in a panda costume and dances in front of your child and guests. The partygoers can also take a video to share with their friends, which is powerful word-of-mouth marketing. Xiong Mao has amassed 8 million customers and raised about $5 million Series A funding.
The startup’s corporate domain is XiongMaoDanGao.com, which is 4-pin and a quite long at 14 characters. Recall that in my Top 100 internet companies research, “98% of the domains are 10 characters or fewer (with the median being 6 characters) excluding the extension”. So, there is an opportunity for a domain upgrade.
When I visited the startup’s website, I looked at its logo, pictures, the About information, and other pages. I found the following brands used.
Xiong Mao (熊猫=Panda)
This is most likely the real brand of the startup. So, the upgrade may be XiongMao.com or even XM.com. Should the startup decide to use “Panda” as its English brand, Panda.com would be a good choice too.
Xiong Mao Dan Gao (熊猫蛋糕=Panda cakes)
This brand is the longer version with the suffix Dan Gao (“cakes”) added, so the domain upgrade could be XMDG.com.
Xiong Mao Bu Zou Dan Gao (熊猫不走蛋糕=Panda staying with you cakes)
This brand is the longest version, and the corresponding domains for upgrade can be XMBZ.com or even XMBZDG.com (which may be too long).
So, by studying the website of the startup, I was able to identify the following domains as possible upgrades: XiongMao.com, XM.com, Panda.com, XMDG.com, XMBZ.com, and XMBZDG.com. The startup needs to consolidate the three brands and check whether the suggested domains are still available for acquisition.
