82 newly funded startups and their domain names: Upgrade.com, FastFox.com, WordPlay.com

Funding activity was down again this week as we saw 82 startup companies raise $308,293,780 in funding. More than 63% of these startup companies launched with a .com address with the ccTLD coming in as a strong second with a 25% piece of the pie. We have not one, single startup that chose to go to market with one of the new domain name extension this month but we do see two companies making use from the sTLD’s .Coop and .Aero

Some domains I like this week include those of San Fransisco-based Upgrade which is a lending company that offers a credit monitoring through its platform for free. The company recently raised a whopping $60M Series A funding round and owns the ultra-premium Upgrade.com domain name. Then we have India-based home rental startups FastFox. Their website at the matching FastFox.com domain allows home seekers to check pictures and in-depth information about 1000s of real time available properties, schedule house visits and finalize with the landlord.  Last up we have WordPlay, a Pennsylvania-based developer of educational game apps using the matching WorldPlay.com domain name.
