#PissBarf: Jeff Bezos of #Amazon and the importance of great #domain names

Great domain names are important for the success of your business and Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, knew that well in 1994.

Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in his garage on July 5, 1994. Bezos initially named his new company Cadabra but later changed the name to Amazon after the Amazon river and in part because the name begins with the letter A, the first letter of the alphabet. Bezos took in a $300,000 loan from his parents and invested it in Amazon.

The domain Amazon.com was registered on October 31, 1994. It was a free registration at the time!

What if Jeff Bezos had gone with Cadabra.com—would he had the same type of success?

One Giant Hand, illustrators of a fun comic, explores the alternate reality of Amazon.com being … PissBarf.com. 😀


Even funnier: someone registered the domain PissBarf.com following the release of this comic, apparently.

It surely wasn’t Jeff Bezos.
