This year is the inaugural Portland Startup Week, and name.com is heading to Portland to shower attendees in swag like t-shirts, free domain names, good coffee, and more! We’re getting involved with Portland Startup Week because we always have a blast at Denver Startup Week, and think Startup Week events are a great way to spread the name.com love while giving back to the startup community.Read More
Sure, there are companies and organizations that are perpetually doing good. For charities, foundations, and many non-profit organizations, that’s their purpose—to do good. For them, .GIVES domain names are obviously perfect.
But .GIVES is not only for the Crème de la crème of human goodness. It’s also for those companies selling siding or that have a room full of telemarketers struggling to make friends over the phone. No matter the main focus of your company or industry, you can improve its perception by being a bigger and better part of the community. Companies with .GIVES domains make it easy (and obvious) to show that they care about making positive change in the community.Read More
One of the many reasons that our customers are the best in the world is that they contact us whenever something doesn’t seem right. That’s how we found out that a bunch of weasels (or perhaps a lone weasel) were sending fake Name.com emails to phish personal information. Not cool.Read More
This post is meant to give you recommendations on how to prevent a potential domain hijack before it happens, because once a domain transfers to another registrar it can be difficult to re-acquire, especially if the transfer was in compliance with ICANN policy. If the registrar is not willing to transfer the domain back into your control then your options for recovery become very limited.Read More

In what could be the most comprehensive Web Address ever, we talk to three people about getting the most out of 2015. You have new goals and resolutions, and we think you’ll find information to help you with any endeavor you choose. We bring in Jon Liu, our intrepid icon of our user interface, to explain how you can get more out of Name.com. With our new, more responsive site you can buy and manage your domains wherever you go. And then there’s URL Forwarding. It’s the easiest way to get the most out of your web properties.Read More
URL forwarding is an incredible tool. You can use it to easily shorten cumbersome URLs for your existing sites. Why send someone to mysite12345.tumblr.com when they could go to yourname.rocks instead? Another great use is to brand your social media channels. While speaking at an event recently, I set up angeladaniels.ninja to forward to my LinkedIn profile. This was so much easier to put into my presentation than the full LinkedIn URL or a username that is easily forgettable. With URL forwarding, it was easy to connect with new professional contacts using a memorable domain name that made me stand out from the crowd.Read More
It’s a New Year, so it’s the time of the year for New Year’s Resolutions. Yeah we know, it’s a cliche. But it’s as good a time as any to try something new or accomplish a task you’ve been putting off. Learn a new skill! Visit a new place! Or maybe … start that website that you’ve been thinking about.
