What better way is there to begin describing what FlipAnIcon
actually means and how this name came about.FlipAnIcon
originated on two definitions namely: “domain flipping” & “icon”.
The definition of "domain flipping" is: “The process of purchasing a domain name with the intent of quickly selling it at a significantly higher cost.”
This is similar to house flipping, where a home is purchased and fixed up in order to sell for a quick profit. Unlike house flipping, however, there is essentially nothing to be done with the domain name in order to increase its value. For that reason you will read on most of the FlipAnIcon landing pages that “premium domain names appreciate in value over time”.
This is no understatement and while it greatly depends on the domain name itself and one’s perception or business model and use case, in essence this is true.
Which brings us to the next definition; “icon”
Why icon you may wonder because normally you would not associate an icon with a domain name.
Maybe not at first glance and again it comes down to perception. What could be considered an icon for one person could be the opposite for someone else. But the fact is that you could make it become an icon and even your iconic brand!
The first definition of icon is; “A very famous person or thing considered as representing a set of beliefs or a way of life.”
The second definition that is also commonly known is; “A small picture or symbol on a computer screen that you point to and click or tab on to give the computer an instruction.”
Or even better;
“a sign (such as a word or graphic symbol) whose form suggests its meaning”
While the first definition is what FlipAnIcon
primarily refers to namely; A very potentially famous domain name considered as representing a set of beliefs, a way of life or a new business.
You can see how the other two definitions closely relate to a digital asset and how the domain name is the “sign” (word). If you add a logo you would have your (graphic symbol) that will suggest its meaning.
Now that you understand the meaning of flipanicon
I recommend that you take another look at the available domain names either in our marketplace
or on the individual landing pages you have seen and maybe you can find and decide which icon to make your own.
And don’t forget to take a closer look at our logo
where you will see two forward slashes // that every domain name on the internet consists of.
For a domain there can only be one of each and for each one it's reach is global.
We look forward to providing you with your iconic domain!
