Go Daddy and Google popular among Y Combinator companies.

YcombinatorWhere do Y Combinator’s startups register their domains and host email? Here’s a handy chart generated in August using domain-profiler.

Go Daddy dominates the domain registration business for Y Combinator startups, according to the chart. Go Daddy also has a large share of the SSL market. On the email side, most of the startups are fans of Google.

When it comes to web hosting, a good number rely on Amazon’s backbone, and SoftLayer and Slicehost also have a good share of the business.

Another thing you might notice by looking at the list is that many of Y Combinator’s startups are customers of Bad Web Site Naming, Inc. From webmynd.com to wundrbar.com to bountii.com, perhaps Y Combinator needs to offer some more advice on name selection.
