Build your personal brand with a .ME domain


We all have that one friend that has a million connections. They’re always active, working simultaneously on several projects, going from one event to another, and can connect effortlessly with ten people at the party at the same time. Have you ever wondered how they make it?

Google Apps for Work users can now request Google Inbox invites


google-inbox-for-work

Google Inbox is a new email product for Gmail that completely changes the whole email experience on both mobile and web. It’s currently an invite-only service, but Google just made it easier to get an invite. If you have a Google Apps for Work account, you can now request an invite for your entire company.

Google is intentionally rolling out the service quickly, with a focus on early adopters and now company admins. The Google Apps for Work account admin will need to send an invite request to inboxforwork@google.com, and then they’re on their way to being an Inbox tester. Google has said that invites will start being sent on in March.

Announcing some important updates to our Two-Step Verification feature


We recommend Two-Step Verification to everyone, as it’s the most fool-proof way of keeping the domains in your Name.com account secure – and it’s totally free. It’s especially important for people who have hundreds or even thousands of domains in their accounts, as they’re more likely to be targeted by bad dudes trying to hijack domains.

The basics of our Two-Step Verification process are still the same—create a unique credential for your account, and then use a smartphone app to generate unique login codes—and it remains a totally free feature for all Name.com customers. However, if you were previously using Namesafe we’ve made some changes that will require you to update your verification credentials by March 5, 2015 to keep your account secure.

The February 2015 name.com promo code is a particularly tasty one


Coming up with a new promo code every month is always a struggle for us because we always have so many good ideas. Luckily, one of those ideas ends up being a great one and that’s the one that gets used. This month, we think we’ve hit peak awesomeness for the name.com promo code. That’s because the February 2015 name.com promo code is… LASAGNA!!!

Why is the name.com promo code lasagna you ask? We’ll tell you why! For no reason at all! Sure, we could have piggybacked off Valentine’s Day or the Superb Owl for our promo code, but we thought that would be lame and uncreative. Lasagna is exactly the opposite of lame and uncreative… it’s tasty and filled with layers of yummy goodness, kind of like an awesome website.
