We asked 3 mommy bloggers for tips on how to be awesome online

If you’ve been keeping up with the Name.com Twitter feed, you may have noticed a whole lot of excitement going on at our office at the end of last week. We invited three Denver-based mommy bloggers to hang out with us for the day and shoot an upcoming video—and it was a blast!

Emily Vanek, editor in chief of ColoradoMoms.com; Sarah Vickers, the founder of MooseandTater.com; and Daria Drago, the project manager turned blogger behind MominManagement.com joined us for a day full of filming, pampering, and chatting about how to find internet success. 

The promo code for October is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth

Are you psyched for fall? We sure are! Bring on the crisp weather, colorful leaves, and snuggly sweaters.

And if that doesn’t sell you on October, I’ve got one word for you: Halloween. Who doesn’t love dressing up in fun costumes and having strangers practically throw candy at you?

We want you to get just as excited over October as we are, which is why we’re offering a very delicious promo code to help you save on some of your favorite domains—all month long!

How to get the domain name you want (even if it’s unavailable)

You’ve come up with a brilliant idea for a new product or website: You’ve already brainstormed a killer website name, wordsmithed a clever slogan, and even designed the graphics to go along with it … only to find out that the domain name you planned on registering is already taken.

Unfortunately, cases like these are not uncommon. Generic domains have a high level of occupancy, so many of the best names are already being used or are sold at Premium prices for thousands of dollars.

Despite all the doom and gloom, stories like these can have happy endings. Rather than having to make your selection from a limited pool of generic domains, you can now choose from hundreds of unique domain options that will define your brand and differentiate your online presence. By thinking outside the box, you can create a web address that is memorable and relevant to what you do.

Why you should be using complementary domains

If you haven’t already heard the news, here it is again: The internet is expanding at an insane pace. Website owners have more opportunities than ever to create a striking online presence that will attract the interest of internet surfers.

But the simple days of one-site, one-URL are slowly caving away to the more evolved practice of branded navigation, which simplifies the way users find specific information about your site or company. All you need is one key tool: complementary domains.
