92 newly funded startups and their domain names: TransferGalaxy.com, TextNinja.com, Senic.com

I skipped last week’s post on newly funded startups and their domains so I’m bringing you up to speed with an extra post today that includes 92 startup companies that received their first round of funding two weeks ago. A total of $564,031,220 was raised with French web hosting and cloud services provider OVH being the top dog with a whopping €250m in venture capital raised. The company isn’t exactly a startup since it was founded back in 1999 but since it had never raised outside capital before it makes it’s way into the list anyway. The company uses the exact match 3-letter OVH.com. More than 70% of the companies on this list also chose a .com address for their presence on the web with the ccTLDs taking slightly more than 16% of the pie. There’s one startup that is using a new gTLD which is Allegra, a fintech & insurtech company operating in Latin American and the Caribbean markets that uses Allegra.global.

There are no exceptional domains on this weeks list but some I like are from Sweden-based online mobile money transfer service TransferGalaxy , Chicago-based TextNinja which is a company on a mission to prevent distracted driving and then there’s Senic, a hardware startup from Germany that turns objects like dials and surfaces like tables into natural user interfaces. All three of them use the matching .com

Here’s the list:

  1. Except the names you’ve mentioned, the rest are simply appalling.
    It serves to shows to us, domainers, how disconnected the startups are from the cannons of naming and branding.

  2. Thanks for the list Doron.
    I usually post your Newly Funded Startups and Their Domain Names on my @dntoday and @brandyeah Twitter accounts.
    Keep up the good work.

    Good luck at DOMAINfest Asia.
