After 15 Years, FastMail Finally Acquires Their .Com – With Rob Mueller

FastMail started in 1999 and today serves hundreds of thousands of customers. They launched on FastMail.fm because it was what was available and memorable, and proving the business model was more important than trying to acquire the .com domain name.

In this interview, founder and director Rob Mueller recounts the impact of not owning fastmail.com for 15 years, how the negotiations started and progressed, how much they paid, and lessons learned for other startup entrepreneurs.
