Brandable Domain Name Sales Week 30 – 2021 (July 26th through August 1st)

The brandable domain names that sold last week, how much they sold for, and where they sold, week thirty. Quick rules recap for how I determine this list: No numeric domains No obvious keywords or category-defining domains (CryptoMarketplace.com is a KW, CoinBase.com is a brand). TLDs/ccTLDs: .com, OR .co, .io, .org if they are strong …

245 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names Including Articulate.com

Surprised to see a .team on this list–hopefully they can take that seed investment and upgrade that domain! I’m seeing a lot of names like SkyFish.ai raising 8 figures in funding… do you think they’ll eventually rebrand to Sky.ai or Fish.ai? Or will they go for SkyFish.com? I guess that’s the $500,000 question… Funding Breakdown: …

Brandable Domain Name Sales Week 26 – 2021 (June 29th through July 5th)

It’s back! The brandable domain names that sold last week, how much they sold for, and where they sold. Really impressed by some of the non-.com names on this list. Quick rules recap for how I determine this list: No numeric domains No obvious keywords or category-defining domains (CryptoMarketplace.com is a KW, CoinBase.com is a …

213 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names Including Carmax.com, Klarna.com, and OneFootball.com

Another week, another $25.2 million dollar average funding deal size across 200+ companies. Most of them were .com related, with .IO, .AI, and .CO bringing up the rest of the TLDs worth mentioning. Also, a domain hack! See if you can spot it. The more-than-2-TLDs breakdown in this week’s list: .com – 135 .io – …

Brandable Domain Name Sales Week 23 – 2021 (June 8th through June 14th)

I admit it, I’m a big fan of .org. A single one-word .org makes an amazing brand. I will die on that hill and take you all down with me. However, I cannot understand why Invisible.org went for $12k+ on Park.io. It’s not a keyword with obvious ecommerce potential. So you rank first for “Invisible”…now …

132 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names Including GoFlink.com, Intrinsic.us, and RTR.ai

Another week, another just mind boggling amount of money invested into companies with some really terrible domain names (because many of them with “get” or “my” or “go” modifiers can’t get their .com because A WHOLE EXISTING COMPANY is built on it. Seems like a questionable move, but what do *I* know? Average amount of …

Brandable Domain Name Sales Week 22 – 2021 (June 1st through June 7th)

This week’s list contains some outliers, as it will once every month, due to the .ai expired auction concluding. If you’ve read last week’s recently funded companies post or the top unicorns and their domains post, you’ll see that .ai has a ton of momentum, and that a lot of successful companies are building businesses …

187 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names Including PerchHQ.com, Anthropic.com, and Faculty.ai

Some thoughts: Anthropic (of or relating to humans) is an AI company that raised $124m. Kind of an obscure dictionary word, so I love it as a brand. HelloResolve.com just raised $60m, but they don’t have Resolve.com, which currently, er… resolves to a “coming soon” page for a physician job search. I have to imagine …
