It’s .co’s third birthday, so we’re giving away a bunch of .co’s… and we’ve got an awesome .co promo!

It’s .co’s third birthday, so we decided to launch a contest! Woohoo!! The contest we’re launching is extremely easy to enter. All you have to do to enter the contest is put your e-mail in the form on our Facebook page and then tell us what your favorite flavor of ice cream is. Three winners will be selected on Sunday night at midnight!

Oh yeah, and .co prices are now just $7.99 instead of the regular $12.99. That’s a pretty sweet offer!! But the offer is only valid until Sunday night.

Transfer your domains to name.com, we’ll hook it up!

The past couple weeks have been really good to us: Roughly 5k of our loyal customers voted us #2 in a recent poll by Lifehacker.com for ‘Best Domain Registrar’ and with GoDaddy’s recent outage woke a lot of people up to other options on the web for domain registrations- name.com being the best of course:) So in that vein, we’re going to keep the transfer ball rolling with two awesome promotions:

New Customers: Use the promo code, “NEWBIE” to receive $6.99 COM/NET transfers. Limit 10 transfers per customer.***Jumping for domain name discounts

Not a new customer? Looking to transfer more than 10 domains? We’d love you to! Use the promotional code, “SWITCHEROOto receive unlimited $7.99 COM/NET transfers (That’s $7.99 per name).

You guys are smart. So are we. It all works out. When we recently gave away 500 free transfers we had some smartie pants come in and abuse the system (we don’t mind as much when it’s insanely creative, smart ways of doing so) so we’ve put some restrictions in place for this one:

***’Newbie’ will only work with new accounts. If you’ve created an account on or after September 10th that qualifies as “new.” You’ve go to be logged in to use the code so we can do some backend ninja magic to cross check you.

Update: GoDaddy was down – we’re giving away 500 free transfers!

Thank you! We hit 500 fairly fast and made a whole bunch of new friends. You’ll like it here, we promise.

Earlier today we offered you $6.99 com/net transfers in from GoDaddy as well as 50% off any of our hosting plans. Behind the scenes our ninjas have been working on an even better promo:

BEGINNING AT 10AM MT on September 11, 2012…

WE’RE GIVING AWAY 500 FREE COM/NET TRANSFERS!

The gory details: 1 transfer per account, the free transfers are only valid if they’re coming from GoDaddy (otherwise just use GROUPHUG for that sweet $6.99 com/net transfer deal.) Offer valid on a first come, first served basis so act fast! Transfers come with a year extension to your current registration, so that’s awesome. It’s automagic so just give it a try!

START YOUR TRANSFER NOW

If you miss the boat you can fall back on the promo code, ‘GROUPHUG’ for $6.99 com/net domains and 50% off any of our hosting plans (good through the end of the day, 11:59 p.m., September 11, 2012.)

Also, we’d like to thank Mashable for listing the GoDaddy alternatives from good to better!

And thank you for all the great Tweets and support!

 

 

 

 

You can now live stream GoPro videos via Periscope (and it could get you a free .LIVE domain)

GoPro and Periscope have partnered up to allow users to live stream epic events. Earlier this year, Periscope announced to iPhone users that they could now connect their devices to WiFi-enabled GoPros to share their adventures with followers as they happen.

We think that’s awesome—so awesome that we’re giving away free .LIVE domains to anyone who Tweets a GoPro live stream to us at @namedotcom!

.LIVE and .STUDIO are here

The long awaited day has finally arrived: .LIVE and .STUDIO are now available for general registration! Individuals, business owners, and more can create memorable primary and secondary URLs with these two distinctive domains. After months of waiting, and a whole lot of anticipation, we cannot wait to see all of the unique and interesting web addresses our customers will come up with using .LIVE and .STUDIO.
