When pursuing an unproven business idea, most people would be more likely to hand register a $9 domain name around which to build a business, rather than spend their savings for a down payment on a home. But Rebekah Campbell, who was called “the woman who bought a domain name instead of a house” by The Sydney Morning Herald, is not most people.
Campbell spent $28,000 to buy the single-word, premium domain name Posse.com for her fledgling business idea and expressed no regret over the decision. That’s understandable: After purchasing the domain name, Campbell was able to raise more than $3 million in multiple rounds to fund her startup.
