BrandBucket launches revamped website

Leading brandable domain name marketplace BrandBucket has launched a redesigned version of their marketplace earlier today.  The new homepage design and improved search interface gives the site a bit of a face lift, and better guides potential customers to find the name they want. Ultimately, the point is to increase sales. The new site also is significantly faster, easier to navigate and shines the light on a larger variety of names on the homepage with categories for featured names, premium names (names with a price tag above $5,000) and recently added names.

I thought it would be fun to look at how to site has evolved over the years from the initial WordPress page with a handful of domains with logos that BrandBucket founder Margot Bushnaq and her husband used for picking domain names for their own ventures almost a decade ago to the popular marketplace it has grown into today with almost 25000 listed business names:

BrandBucket throughout the years: 2007 till today.

  1. I really like the direction they are heading. They looked pretty unprofessional with the previous sites.

    Unfortunately, I see a lot of low quality names there too. They accept a lot more and with such a high inventory the quality goes down. Also the sales are much lower.

    We are all here to make money, maybe that’s the normal course of action.

  2. Since Namerific upgraded their site, I quickly saw rooms for improvement on BB’s site and here it came! Used to hate that cloud that used to be on the front page. Now with too many inferior names at BB, I don’t feel like adding my names there anymore. Will be acquiring premium dropping brandables and going the EFTY way! 😉

  3. Thanks for write-up, Doron! It’s really cool to see all the iterations of the site.

    @Keith – I also need to give a shout out to our design and development team. They did a great job!
