90 newly funded startups and their domain names: Babyshop.com, Notarize.com, Onevoice.world

The Chinese New Year had little to no effect on the funding frenzy that’s going on in startup land. It was business as usual with 90 new startup companies from all over the world raking in a cool $405,435,860 in cash last week.  Companies need websites and websites need a domain name so we look at what’s hot and what’s not. With 74% .Com remains the top dog, followed by the ccTLDs who account for 10% of this weeks list.

Then there’s Engineered Propulsion Systems, a company that created a lightweight diesel engine for airplanes and is using a .aero domain name. This extension is not a new gTLD but a so called sponsored TLD (sTLD) for the aviation industry that just never really got of the ground (pun intended).  We also have one company using a new gTLD this week with onevoice, a knowledge platform and community site for people battling rare deceases located at onevoice.world.

Some name + domain name combos I like on this weeks list include Swedish e-tailer of childrens clothing Babyshop.com, a domain name that was purchased for $85,000 on Sedo back in 2009. The company also acquired a long list of ccTLDs such as Babyshop.cn and Babyshop.es over the years. Another startup that caught my eye is US based remote electronic notary service Notarize which uses the premium matching .com. Last but not least I also like Danish startup Shopbox that offers a all-in-one solution for small businesses to simplify business processes. The Shopbox.com domain was purchased in 2008 for  just $3,000 at Afternic according to Namebio.
