103 newly funded startups and their domain names: Privacy.com, Uptake.com, Modsy.com

I’ve been writing this series for almost a year now and we never had a list that exceeded 100 newly funded startups before. There seems to be no slow down in VC funding this last quarter, especially not with all the recent venture money flowing into Indian tech, food, transportation and pharma startups at the moment. With 77 startup using a .Com for their domain name it is once again clear who’s the undisputed king of TLDs. The ccTLDs come in second a usual with about 12% of the pie.

There’s a few startups this week with stellar domain names like secure online card payment provider Privacy which uses the ultra premium Privacy.com domain name.  The domain name was first registered in 1996 and was most recently in use by a company named Brierley+Partners which was acquired earlier this year.

Another great name + domain combo is from Chicago based data analytics software provider Uptake that announced a cool $45M round of financing and is using the Uptake.com domain name. The domain name was purchased for just $10,000 back in 2011 at Sedo.  Others I like on this list are Modsy (Modsy.com) which allows you see and shop design possibilities in the context of your own home as well as Toronto-based homeware design company Umbra (Umbra.com).
