With the abundance of news about compromised cyber security and hacking schemes, it’s natural to want to take extra precautions to keep your online information safe.
Two-Step Verification keeps your account extra secure by requiring a time-sensitive code in addition to a traditional login. As opposed to solely relying on a username and password, which can be guessed or figured out by an experienced crook, Two-Step Verification adds an extra layer of security.
Better yet, getting Two-Step Verification set up for your Name.com account is a simple task that can be done in a matter of minutes. Let’s walk through the steps.
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.
It’s not very often that a tutorial comes along that tells you exactly how to raise money to build your dreams, but Ryan Angilly does just that with his story of Ramen and the Angel List. Ramen is Ramen.is, Angilly’s company that he was able to fund through AngelList.co. His presentation was a hit at Boulder Startup Week and we feel is an informative step-by-step to startup success.
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.

There’s a lot going on with video right now. For one, it’s taken over the Internet. Just last Saturday Periscope turned the Pay-Per-View “Fight of the Century” into a free-for-all for anyone with a smart phone. Barely a year ago the Ice Bucket Challenge morphed everyone’s backyard into a set piece for fund raisers dousing themselves in cold water and, in turn, catapulted Facebook past YouTube in video views. Twitter offers video now, as does its offspring Vine, and we probably shouldn’t dismiss Snapchat and Facebook’s Instagram beast. Trying to tackle this trend is where your .VIDEO comes in.
Squarespace makes it easy for anyone to build a website. Yet when it comes time to actually connect your Squarespace site to your domain name it can get pretty confusing—it’s like they’re asking you to calculate the surface area of a cube (brace yourself, more geometry jokes and puns are coming). All of the numbers and letters you are presented with can certainly be intimidating. We’ve come up with a solution: Name.com has created an easy DNS template that will help you add those needed records with a few clicks.
Choosing the right products and services for your websites can be confusing. What’s WordPress? Do I need hosting? What if I don’t know how to code? How do I get my own email address?
These are pretty common questions for someone building a website for the first time, so we’ve taken a stab at simplifying the process. Creating a website for your business or an online portfolio for your job search is super important, and it shouldn’t be super hard. We’ve built a tool that will help you choose exactly what you need based on the type of website you have in mind.
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.
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.
