The.com is a new low-code website building platform that allows web creators to collaborate and track components called blocks while breaking down website building into a flexible and dynamic format. This week, the platform officially launched after receiving $4.4 million in seed funding. According to Tech Crunch:

The idea for The.com comes from co-founders and brothers, Jeff and Clarke McKinnon. The founders have a background in web development and design, having run their own web development agency in Boulder from 2012 to 2019, before founding The.com. During that time, they experienced first-hand the frustrations that come with traditional web development, Clarke said.

“We were waiting for someone else to come up with the perfect platform that met all of our needs. It just didn’t happen,” Clarke told TechCrunch. “So we started building it ourselves.”

The.com was backed by a Pryor Cashman team led by attorney Ryan Klarberg with support from the firm’s partner and co-chair of the firm’s digital media group, Robert deBrauwere, and partner from the intellectual property group, Kamilah Holder.
