Unstoppable Domains, San Francisco, the USA, was founded by Matthew Gould and Braden Pezeshki in 2018. “For too long, companies have controlled people’s digital identities, and Unstoppable Domains is putting that power back into the hands of people. As the digital economy becomes a larger part of our lives, it’s time for people to own their identity on the internet,” Matthew Gould, founder, and chief executive of Unstoppable Domains. As of now, the startup, which sells domains with certain TLDs has helped people register over 2.5 million domains.
