67 newly funded startups and their domain names: Muso.com, Pray.com, FashionTrade.com


The summer is causing things to slow down a bit in venture capital land as we only saw $255,651,880 in capital raised by 7867 new startups companies. Over 76% of these companies launched with a .com domain name with the ccTLDs being a very distant second with a share of almost 9%.  After an absence of three weeks, the new domain name extensions made a bit of a comeback this week with three entries on the list including a .Horse domain name!

Despite a rather small list there definitely are a few companies who launched with a great domain name. First, there’s MUSO, A UK-based software company that provides anti-piracy solutions for enterprises. The matching Muso.com was acquired for just $7,915 from Afternic in 2008. Next up we have a California-based startup with the ultra premium domain name Pray.com, the private social networking company describes itself as “a website and mobile app that helps people live with purpose and connect with faith”. Since there isn’t any public sales data on the Pray.com domain name sale I did a bit of research and found this interesting Q&A in which one of the founders of the company shares how they were able to get their hands on such a valuable domain name. He says the sales price was comparable to that of Bible.com but I am unaware of any public sales data on that domain name either. Last up there is Dutch retail startup FashionTrade which is an online fashion marketplace operating at FashionTrade.com where brands and retailers can connect and do their wholesale business online.
