Upstart

Monica Kirchner and Kirsten Hansen are seated in the lap of luxury, co-founders of a company that presides over not one single app or website but the whole lot of high-end domain names that end in ” .luxury.”

People can purchase new Web addresses via registrars such as GoDaddy, Network Solutions and Name.com. Many already allow interested buyers to preregister for new addresses.
