Here’s what you might not know about the Internet: that fame thing—online fame—it’s real. It’s as real as 10,000 screaming teenage girls, and we got to hear them, a lot, at VidCon 2016.
Unbounce CTA recap: pub crawls, juice, and panels galore
We spent two beautiful days in Vancouver early last week at the Unbounce CTA Conference, which was jam packed with influential speakers and interesting topics. Marketers from all over the world swarmed the Name.com booth first thing Monday morning to take advantage of the free domains, swag, and wealth of knowledge we offered about New Domains. Our Project Refresh completely rejuvenated attendees’ mindsight on how to use New Domains to their advantages.

SXSW recap: Tattoos, impromptu a capella, and domain artistry
What a week!
We’re still winding down from an amazing SXSW experience that was filled with musical talents, free tattoos, Jackalopes, and, of course, domain magic. Here are some of the highlights of our trip.
Meet us at SXSW 2016
It’s that time of year again: The time when tens of thousands of people descend on the city of Austin and it becomes the epicenter of all things music, film, and tech for a glorious 10 days. And thus, three of Name.com’s finest are packing up our bags, stocking up on Bearglecorn stickers, and heading down to Austin ourselves. There, we’ll hand out free domains, take part in one of the biggest hackathons in the business, and hopefully get a chance to chat with some of our Name.com customers.
We’ll be a South by Southwest Music Festival from Monday Mar. 14 until Thursday Mar. 17, and we’d love for you to come say hello!
