49 newly funded startups and their domain names: SafeGraph.com, MortgageHippo.com, Pangara.com

Funding activity was up down significantly from last week as we only saw 49 startup companies raise $98,984,510 in funding. Just over 61% of these startup companies launched with a .com address with the ccTLD claiming the second spot with 12%. The .Co extension is alive and well, making up more than 10% of this week’s list. We only have one single new extension this week which is a .Digital. We are more than 3.5 years into the new gTLD program and it’s safe to say that appetite among startups for the new extensions is pretty much non-existing.

Back to the list which is rather disappointing once again as I struggle to select three domains that are half decent.  The best names are often two-keyword brandables in .com such as SafeGraph.com and MortgageHippo.com or invented names that are short, memorable and easy to pronounce such as Pangara.com. A .co or .io domain can definitely work but only if it’s really short or a nice one-word such as Task.io or Bark.co. If you are going to name your company EngageRocket you better pay up for the .com because going with a two-keyword .co domain, ie EngageRocket.co really is a big mistake in my opinion.

  1. HI doron it would be good if you can add domain name as hyperlink instead of text, that way we can directly navigate to website instead of copy pasting in browser. Irrespective of it i appreciate your efforts in compiling this list, i regularly watch out this.
