51 newly funded startups and their domain names: FastJet.com, MyDevices.com, Colibo.com

I want to thank everyone that reached out to me offering their help with compiling the weekly list. I have found somebody that will work with me on this moving forward so I am happy to share we can continue publishing this series.  Last week we saw 51 startups kick off the year with a combined $426,856,970 in funding. More than 78% of these companies launched with a .com domain name for their website followed by the ccTLDs with more than 15% of the list. There is not a single startup so far this year that went with a new domain extension.

Some domain names I like on this week’s list include those of Africa’s first pan-continental airline, Fastjet which uses the matching Fastjet.com domain name which was picked up for $1,650 on SnapNames back in 2005. Although it;s a little bit descriptive I also like California-based myDevices,  an online platform that provides its users with personalized IoT solutions from the matching myDevices.com domain name. Last up we have Danish social intranet startup Colibo. The company just raised its first major venture funding. It was me who hand-registered the Colibo.com domain name in 2014 and sold it to them via BrandBucket.com a year later for $2,095

  1. Congrats on the Colibo sale in the past Doron. I don’t know what I like to enjoy more, seeing my past sold domains becoming a major player in a niche or seeing work trucks all over the area plus some TV of web sites I built from the ground up.

  2. 90-95% of the names in the list are hard to remember or spelled out, don’t know who advices them on branding !!
    MobiDent is actually an on-demand dental care startup, who would have thought 🙂
