Tango.me Raises $280M And No, They Don’t Own The .COM

Tango.me Raises $280M And No, They Don’t Own The .COM

Interesting that Tango.com directs to a Facebook page of a company that sells a drink called Tango. A nice generic domain like that should have its own website. I don’t know if .com isn’t always the right answer, I’m sure if Tango.com had been available this app company wouldn’t be using Tango.me. These startups are using other extensions not because it’s the right anwer, but because they don’t have a choice at this stage of the game, with premium .com’s hard to acquire. Maybe with the $280 million funding they’ll go after the .com. Like another said with an app-based company the domain might not be as critical. If Tango.me was a startup that sold a product on a website (ie: dependent on website sales), they would be losing traffic without owning the .com of their name.
