101 newly funded startups and their domain names: TenFour.com, ClearCover.com, Ryte.com

A whopping $896,602,930 was raised by 101 start-up companies in the last week. Of these, Shenzhen based transport and logistics  YH Global, led the funding rounds by raising RMB1.2 billion (US$182 million) in Series A funding. Approximately  76% of this week’s startups chose a .com domain name, with 23% of them choosing to use a ccTLD. As for the new gTLD’s; we have a .global (Good2Go.global), a .live (Carson.Live), and a .life (odoc.life)

Honestly, I would have loved to see some great liquid domains and/or some one-word .com domains on this week’s list, but I understand that these are quite expensive for new startups.  After searching arduously through the list for domains to highlight in the title, the first name I went with was TenFour.com. The domain sold on SnapNames for $11,250 back in 2006, and Ten Four is an IT infrastructure company headquartered in New Jersey. ClearCover.com also stood out to me because of the alliteration. Clearcover is an insurance tech company out of Chicago, who claims to have a new approach to doing car insurance. Lastly, we have Ryte.com, a domain name first registered in 1999, and may have been sold on Afternic sometime in 2016. The company, Ryte, previously known as OnPage.org,  is a digital monitoring and optimization company.

    1. {at)domains,

      That’s true, but part of the problem is that many startups aren’t even aware of domain aftermarkets.

      Morgan Linton wrote an important post on Feb 10 called “Not all startup founders know that domain marketplaces exist”. He wrote:

      “I recently sent an email around asking startup founders to name the domain name marketplaces they know. The top response was ‘What’s a domain marketplace?’ “

      So there’s the challenge for domain investors. A lot of people simply have never heard of Sedo, Efty or Uniregistry Market.

      Morgan visited HK recently and met up with Doron from Efty, but I haven’t seen any reports about whether this was discussed.

      Marketing brandables is different to EMDs, perusing a portfolio like BrandBucket seems to be very successful. Customers often don’t know what they want until they see it.

      ——-

      Thanks for the lists Candace!

      1. You’re welcome Dave.

        And you are so right. Many startup founders have no clue about the domain aftermarket. That could be both a good and a bad thing. Good for keeping wholesale costs down for domainers, but bad for selling domains for good profit on domain marketplaces.
