72 newly funded startups and their domain names: Fluidly.com, Klue.com, Moodle.com

$750,525,140 was raised by 72 start-up companies last week. Vxchnge, a company that operates a network of data centers throughout the US, led the funding rounds with $200 million in Venture funding. As always, most of the startups (68% of them) chose to launch with a .com domain name, with 29% of them choosing a ccTLD. This week, we have two new gTLDs, a .games (teatime.games), and a .tech (Jala.tech)

Yet another week of struggling to find category-killer domain names to highlight in our title. However, we must carry on with a few other domain names that work well. The -ly suffix was extremely popular among startups for a few years. Although that phase is coming to an end, we have Fluidly on this weeks list. The domain works since fluidly is a dictionary adverb denoting the idea of something that is not rigid. And truly, this idea is related to the company’s goals of managing and rethinking the way businesses manage their cash flow.  Next up, we have Klue, a company that seeks to provide intelligence information (give a clue) about a business’ competitors. Klue.com was first registered in 1999, and is a great brandable domain name, as Klue is quite the popular misspelling of Clue. Next, we’ll honorably mention the open source learning platform, Moodle. As a former teacher, I’m relatively certain I used Moodle a couple of years ago for course management. Back then, I was told that ‘Moodle’ was a misspelling of ‘Doodle’; however, ‘MOODLE’ is apparently a tech-term for “Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment.”
