We can’t take credit for all of the happiness you’re about to witness. There was beer—free beer. OK, we did the free part, but the beer was beer and we simply provided the fiscal inspiration to set it free. “Was it worth it?” the bean counters at the head office will ask?

The DSW trifecta: Laughs, beer, tech jobs
We go nuts during Denver Startup Week for two reasons: One, because our company was born and raised in Denver, and two because there’s free beer. We wouldn’t bother you if there weren’t free beer. Here’s what Name.com will be contributing to Startup week on Sept. 27 and 28.
The upcoming total solar eclipse shows how far technology has come
Who’s excited for the total solar eclipse? You know, the one that’s supposed to stretch from the western coast to the eastern coast of the U.S.? The last time an eclipse spread across a nation is was 1918 and it’s safe to say that technology has changed just a little bit since then.
The solar phenomenon will take place on Aug. 21, 2017—and you better not blink because the eclipse will only last for about two minutes. If you do blink and somehow miss the eclipse entirely, you won’t see it happen again until Aug. 12, 2045 which is, like, really far away.

But what’s friendship without some friendly competition?

Help us make the Name.com Blog better by taking this 3-minute survey
As we approach last few months of 2016 (a scary thought, I know), we’re taking some time to reflect on our year so far and start thinking about how we can do even better in 2017.
