About NameBounce

Welcome to NameBounce's about page! Our goal here is to tell you about NameBounce, our story, and our future.

First, let's dive into who we are! NameBounce is a forward-thinking business naming startup. Our goal is to use technology to make it easy for anyone to find a memorable business name.

We officially launched in 2019. Since then, we've served users in over 200 different countries, ranging from the Solomon Islands to the United States. We help new entrepreneurs find YouTube names, restaurant names, blog names, and more. We've appeared in Business.com, Syracuse University's LaunchPad, B2C, Product Hunt, SCORE, SmartBlogger, Startup Stash, and more.

We're a new company, but we're growing. We're working hard to spread the word about our platform and offer more products.  We offer products for every budget, ranging from the valuable free tier of our name generator, to a premium naming course that mimics the process followed by top agencies.

One of our core values is to give back. The current economic situation is difficult. Many people have lost their livelihoods and are struggling to figure out what's next. To help out, we want to make it a little easier for people to find work that they love.  And we want to help them be successful in that work.

To do this, we try to balance making money with keeping the costs down for all of our users. Nowadays, premium domain names cost $2,000 or more.  Most new businesses can't afford that.  So we designed our products and services to uncover similar-quality business names and domain names at a fraction of the cost.

Due to naming frustration, many people get sidetracked starting their businesses. We want to flip that problem on its head. Instead, we want naming to be the catalyst that pushes them forward with their business.

We hope that in some small way, our products can give you hope too!

My Story

Hi, I’m Axel! I’m the founder of NameBounce.

Since I was a kid, I loved technology and creating things. From the age of three onward, I was on a computer. I had a desire to create, even though I didn’t realize it for some time.

Now, I can see how that desire came out, even through video games like FIFA Soccer. I only enjoyed playing the “career” or “manager” modes. I liked building a team over many years, as opposed to playing single games.

Fast-forward a decade. By then, I was working in commercial real estate investments. I loved making my job easier by creating simple tools through automated spreadsheets.

One day, out of curiosity, I picked up a book on domain names.

Maybe it was due to the countless hours I spent on the internet growing up, but I got hooked on domain names. I knew I had to find a way to do something with them.

A few years ago, I wanted to start my own business. As I brainstormed ideas, I realized that I loved unlocking what made businesses work. I also loved helping other people start their own businesses.

Eventually, I combined all of these passions. The next step after deciding on a business idea is naming. I loved domain names and simple technology. From all of that, I had the idea to start a business that focused on technology-based naming.

And that's how NameBounce was born!

The Future of NameBounce

As I mentioned previously, starting a business can be challenging. Many people want to start a business but don't see it as a viable option.

However, the societal landscape has started to change. A four-year college degree can cost a quarter of a million dollars. Even after investing in college, 53% of college graduates end up unemployed or working in a job that doesn’t require a college degree.

While the cost of college increases by the day, the cost of launching a business decreases by the day. Thanks to the internet, anyone can start a business for as little as a few hundred dollars. Affiliate marketing, blogging, and creating digital products can be fantastic business models that require little up-front investment.

We believe that starting a business shouldn't be complicated or risky. Our long-term vision is to help you start a business knowing that you will be successful.

This is a daunting task. Nobody has figured this out and marketed it on a wide scale. There's a reason that the thought of losing a job is scary.

Nonetheless, we believe it's possible. It will take some time, but we're going to keep building towards that goal.

The first product we launched was our business name generator. Next, we realized that many people needed a more comprehensive naming solution. That's where our premium naming products on NameBounce+ are coming in.

Over time, we'll keep building more and more products with that endgame in mind (likely through a separate brand).  We'll offer some of them for free and offer others at a reasonable price. Either way, we're ready to help you!
