81 Newly Funded Companies and their Domain Names: HotelEngine.com, Gambling.com, Stoke.world

Back in January 2015, shortly after starting this blog, I decided it would be a good idea to publish a weekly list of recently funded startups and their domain names. You can find the very first list I published here and together with the help of Candace Cook we published almost 160 lists, covering and analyzing more than 10,000 startups and their domain names.

The series became a weekly favorite for many readers but it took many hours for us to research and compile the list and then publish it so we stopped publishing the list 4 years later, in January 2018.

Thanks to some recent updates to Crunchbase’s Pro subscription I am now able to export a list of data in minutes compared to hours it used to take to do this manually which means I am bringing this weekly series back to the blog.

Here’s this weeks list:

  1. Some truly awful domains in there. It would seem start-ups may not be as interested in their online addresses as once was the case?

    Best brand there IMO, based on domain alone, is HotelEngine.com.

  2. Thanks for the list.

    Glad to see the uses of TLDs becoming more diversified. In my opinion, that’s also inevitable. When good names of a TLD are used up, people then go for a different TLD. So that’s not surprising. In fact, that’s reasonable and predictable.
