NEW YORK and BELLEVUE, Wash., August 15, 2023 – Identity Digital Inc., a leader in connecting the online world with domain names and related technologies, made the 2023 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for the third year in a row. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to receive this recognition again, and we sincerely appreciate Inc.’s consideration as well as the endorsements from our customers and partners,” says Akram J. Atallah, CEO of Identity Digital. “Our mission is to enable people and businesses worldwide to create domain names that uniquely represent their identities using both sides of the dot. The continued adoption of new domains, a testament to our mission, propels our ongoing growth.”
Identity Digital offers a range of new web addresses such as .lgbt, .live, .social, .games, .digital, and .watch. These domains empower businesses to craft memorable names that enhance their search engine optimization (SEO) strategies and build robust online brands. For instance, consider Bliss, an innovative mobile banking app, which has adopted the domain bliss.lgbt. By skillfully utilizing “both sides of the dot,” Bliss showcases its dedication to serving transgender individuals, effectively driving website traffic and optimizing SEO strategies to underscore their specialized expertise.
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
