Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 21.

We’re back with a big list of 61 startup companies that raised a combined 284+ million dollars in funding last week.  Most interesting is Wifi Master Key, the company behind a Chinese app that lets users crowd source login credentials for China’s wifi hotspots that just raised $50 million and acquired the ultra premium domain name Wifi.com a few weeks back.  The company currently uses LianWifi.com in China and I expect them to use the Wifi.com domain to serve the US market in the near future. More than 73 percent of startups that raised funding last week launched with a .Com  address with the second place being for the ccTLDs with almost 15 percent. There’s a few startups that named themselves after dictionary words such as Cove, Control, Gather and Clutter (Elliot Silver at DomainInvesting.com wrote about this particular one) but none of them owns the matching .Com domain.

Here’s this weeks list:
