    I'm launching a browser based cloud application that lets organisations responsible for grant funding / commissioning better manage the process. It allows funders to easily keep track of multiple budgets, applications, payments and performance of services - with attractive dashboards and a streamlined user interface.

    The service will be predominantly aimed at public sector agencies which will predominantly be funding charities / social enterprises. The audience is potentially global, although initially targeting UK based funders.

    In terms of a domain name, I wanted something short, non-region specific and memorable.

    I had intended to use "ufund" in the io extension

    My main concern with this is that .io isn't particularly known outside of tech circles, and whilst this is a tech solution, the audience might not be familiar with it.

    I then recently acquired "sums" in the org extension

    This has a good ring to it in my mind, as ultimately the software is all about managing various sums of money and performing various calculations etc. It's also short and memorable.

    The software is free to use, although full functionality requires a paid subscription.

    What do people think?

    I would be grateful if responses could refrain from writing the URLs in full.

    I think sums is much, much better. Also, neither the .com or .net are being used.

    I would go for a .org domain, but not "sums" as it can be confusing.

    Sounds like a good project for a .org by the description. Also factor in the keyword "Sums" is better than "youfund".....um, um, I meant "ufund."

    Best success to you!

    Thanks for feedback. I'm glad people are supportive of the sums domain, as I liked it too.

    The .org sounds perfect for the project.

    By the way, if you are envisaging it as a big project, why not use epically.com? )

    In order with significant distance between each level.
    1- Sums in O
    2- uFund in O
    3- Sums in I
    4- ufund in I
    110% go with Su__ .or_

    (People .. please remember OP asked not to write the domain completely)

    I would go for .io for the following two reasons:
    • You are launching a tech solution and .io is well-known among tech community.
    • .org is more suited to non-profit organizations. I don't see many tech companies using .org domain names.
    Good luck!
