59 newly funded startups and their domain names: Better.com, MapAnything.com, H-u-m-a-n.com

Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been spending the past week visiting friends and family in the Netherlands but the first thing my wife and I did on the first morning of this new year was cross the border into Belgium where we currently stay in the beautiful medieval town of Ghent. Next up is a brief visit to Amsterdam and Helsinki and then I have a couple of days back home in Hong Kong before packing my suitcase again for NamesCon in Las Vegas. Lots of stuff to look forward to except for the jet lag 🙂

Funding activity in startup land was a bit lower due to the holiday but nonetheless we still saw 59 companies raise a cool $214,885,340 in capital. Almost 78% of these startups chose a .Com for their address on the web. The ccTLD and .Co share the 2nd place with both taking 8.5% of the the pie.

The price for ultra-premium domain goes to mortgage lender Better Mortgage that uses the Better.com web address. Another name + domain combo I quite liked is from US based software company MapAnything, that was previously called CloudBilt. Price for worst domain name goes to Human Inc, a group of Pacific Northwest designers that are using the h-u-m-a-n.com domain name.
