Social media is one of the most important ways to reach an audience nowadays. Whether you are promoting a business service or your latest blog post, a solid social media strategy is an excellent way to increase your content’s exposure.
But maintaining five-plus social accounts, responding to questions and comments, and tracking the performance of your posts all the while can be tricky without the right tools. Rather than scrambling to monitor your accounts individually, there are a number of social media tools that can simplify your life.
So you’ve bought a New Domain that you love and you’re ready to get a website started. What’s the first thing you do? Choose a platform for creating and maintaining your website!

If you own or even work for a small to medium-sized business, you know how difficult it can be to distinguish yourself online.

The way we search for and apply to jobs has changed dramatically over the past few decades. And while it’s not quite time to toss the traditional cover letter and resume, it is time to change the way you present yourself to employers.

So instead of waiting for a potential employer to stumble across disastrous photos of Spring Break ’08, why not create a standout website with a memorable New Domain?

For the past couple of years there’s been a persistent bug on Name.com. It wasn’t a big bad bug that caused the website to break or put any users at risk. It was more of a small annoying UI bug that certainly caused frowny faces, sad pandas, and feelings of frustration for our users.

At Boulder Startup Week, Ryan Angilly explained how he raised money for his company Ramen using AngelList. Angilly explains some useful investor terms, how he got the ball rolling on his investment round, and how he successfully used AngelList to fuel the growth of his business. If you’re considering (or just curious) with how to raise money on AngelList, you’ll really enjoy Angilly’s talk on how he accomplished his fundraising goals using AngelList.
