If you’ve got an idea for a new website, there’s no time like the present. Start a search, lock down the domain you’ve got in mind, and start building. And here’s a little extra incentive to help you get started: From now through Nov. 4, you can use the promo code GOFISH at checkout and the registrations (and renewal!) price for .COM and .NET domains will be just $9.25.Read More
When you’re approached by a fantastic group of women who want you to share in their love of craft beer, you make the most of the opportunity. What we didn’t realize is how much fun Colorado’s Barley’s Angels would be. After some beverages we hatched (brewed?) a plan to infiltrate the Great American Beer Festival at the Denver Convention Center. To say that the GABF is big is an understatement. This year it hosted over 49,000 people and offered nearly 4000 beers. How would we break through the teeming masses and get the word out about Colorado’s premiere group of femme ferments and our brand new .BEER domain name?
We’d listen. That’s right, a trick not completely unknown but is on the verge of extinction.
Our first question was pretty basic.
It was...Read More
We dare you to watch this and not like New Yorkers. Go ahead. Who doesn’t need a heartwarming three minutes of Sinatra-inspired humanity?
Yes, there was some concern about stuffing a naive guy from Colorado in a cab in Queens and have him ambush people with a camera. From his boss’s boss it was relayed that he “just might get himself killed.” Well, there wasn’t any death. Only love. Love for New York City and for the opportunity to get their very own .NYC domain name. Here’s what we got from the video above: New Yorkers are fond of their city and .NYC is the 212 of New Domains.Read More
The brand new domain name .REVIEWS is here, and it’s making it easier than ever for people to discover the Yelp or TripAdvisor reviews that are posted about your business.
We’ll use a restaurant across the street from the Name.com office, Cherry Cricket, as an example. Below are the current URLs to find reviews for Cherry Cricket:
Those are pretty long URLs! Instead of having those long URLs, Cherry Cricket could hop onto Name.com and snag the domain name CherryCricket.reviews, and then use URL forwarding to redirect the domain to either their Yelp reviews page or TripAdvisor reviews page.
Or, Cherry Cricket could ...Read More
We had a great time at the Legal Tech Startup Weekend last weekend… list a seriously good time! It’s always fun to buckle down for 54 hours and turn an idea into a company. The Seattle Startup Weekend that we went to this past weekend was focused on legal related products, which brought some of the following ideas to life:Read More
There are a lot of geeks here at name.com, which probably has us a bit extra pumped up about our newest giveaway. This giveaway is for the brilliantly geeky premium domain name code.ninja! You’re psyched, we’re psyched, we’re high fiving each other all of the place, and it’s awesome.Read More
.DESI is about to explode the Internet with mind-blowing epic-ness by providing a new cultural digital community for the large number of Web users who call the Indian Sub-Continent home (or “home,” if they’re away from home). That’s right. This New Domain will explode the Internet with connectedness. Like an exploding magnet that both explodes out and draws in at the same time.Read More
If you’re in one of the Five Boroughs, the day has finally come. Starting today you can register your very own .NYC domain name, whether it’s for personal use, a business, or an organization. It’s your opportunity to show the online world that you’re a proud New Yorker.

Name.com’s Jared Ewy will be there too, helping people register .NYC domain names and promoting all sorts of .NYC goodness.Read More
This will be the 10th Ignite Denver that Name.com has been a part of. Why? Because it’s the perfect blend of brains, beer, and another word that starts with b and means “packed theater of community goodness and hilarity and free stuff.” It’s that good. That’s why we’d like you to join us at the Oriental Theater this Thursday, October 9th. The doors open at 6 and the show is at 7. We’ll even give you a free t-shirt. All you need to do is get your ticket at IgniteDenver.org.
It’s the kind of mind-blowing debauchery that comes with all the fun and none of the guilt.
So what the heck is Ignite Denver? It’s people from all over the area who have 5 minutes on stage to share their passion for … well, anything. It doesn’t matter...Read More
We’re a fan of hackathons, so when the opportunity to support a domain name focused hackathon at Galvanize’s gSchool was presented to us, it was a natural fit. The way that this hackathon works is that all the teams are told a single domain name at the beginning of the event to build something for and then have two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. Which ever team builds the most creative idea for the domain wins. It’s a pretty simple concept that definitely seems like it could birth some goofy, fun, and cool ideas.Read More
