What MassChallenge’s first Texas class reveals about domain name usage.
Startup accelerator MassChallenge has announced the inaugural class of 84 startups for its Texas accelerator. The companies are in a number of industries, so I thought it would be interesting to see what types of domains the companies are using.
67 of the companies in the announcement are linked to websites. Here’s the breakdown of domains they use:
84% of the companies use .com domain names.
Let’s look at some of the companies that don’t use a .com:
FastVisa.us – the .us domain makes sense because the company helps people with U.S. immigration.
NextPlay.ai – an enterprise Artificial Intelligence startup.
Open.media – the company’s name is Open Media. OpenMedia.com has been registered since 1995.
