Easy interface
Plain and simple. Good stuff :)
Your website gives the impression that creating and managing domains will be easy, simple, and efficient. That is exactly the experience I’ve had since I’ve become a customer. After dealing with 1 and 1’s horrendously complex (and slow!) site to mange domains, name.com is amazing. I don’t want to spend hours doing something that should take minutes.
Price and good multi-search facility. Also not trying to shove lots of other stuff at me with each logon/purchase...

From the Inside Out: Building a Company Vision and Mission (part III)


As many of you have been following we’ve begun the process of creating a company vision. Last time we left off we were ready to dive into our BHAG (big hairy audacious goal). I promised you guys that we would open the doors and be completely transparent during this process so I’m going to be totally honest: coming up with a company vision is a long and difficult road!

big hairy audacious goal

Almost there.

The latest:

We’re at the stage where we have selected our MARS group and divided the whole company into 3 groups from which each of the 6 MARS members will be soliciting feedback. Members of customer support will be interviewing Developers, Developers are interviewing Operations and Marketing, and Operations and Marketing are interviewing Customer Support (or some sort of mix along those lines).

Shedding Some Light During the Blackout (SOPA & PIPA)


Isn’t it Ironic
“Ironic” is a term that gets overused and even misused a lot, but I think we’ve got a solid case of Irony here: the freedom and innovation inspired by the openness of the Internet is the very thing that clobbered the bill that would have stifled the freedom and innovation of the Internet.

It’s true, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has been shelved. SOPA was authored with hopes to curb online piracy by preventing the likes of Google and Yahoo from sending users to sites distributing stolen materials. It would also allow for litigation if copyright was being infringed. It’s a concept backed by the likes of cable giant Comcast as well as the Motion Picture Association of America...

Affiliate Getting Started, Series 1: Choosing An Affiliate Network


by Caroline, Name.com Domain Concierge

We’re assuming you already know what an Affiliate is and have a desire to start making money by promoting services/products in your niche on your blog. A quick way for locating Advertisers in your niche is through an Affiliate Network. Affiliate Networks act as intermediaries between you the Affiliate and the Advertiser. Affiliate Networks allow you to compare various offers from Advertisers and you can choose which offers to participate in and promote via your blog.

Soo’85How the heck do you choose an Affiliate Network? We thought http://www.imediaconnection.com/content/4388.asp had a few great suggestions for you to consider when selecting a network...

Name.com Community Evangelist Loses Bet, feels awkward


Because Tim Tebow couldn’t hit the broadside of the sun during a supernova, and the Denver Bronco defense gave Tom Brady enough time to make footballs out of a live pig, I am wearing this jersey. Long, painful story short, I lost a bet with Name.com customer Mike Maddaloni, the owner of pro-Patroits website, GoPats.com.

 

For those of you not into into American football (kind of the direction I’m heading these days), Name.com is located in the town of the Denver Broncos. The Patriots beat the Broncos by a lot of points (I had to turn it off in the fourth quarter.) I’m wearing the jersey of Brady, the quarterback of the New England Patriots. It feels very, very wrong.

Name.com Experiences A Tim Tebow Miracle


Or maybe Beeracle?

The Denver Broncos quarterback is surrounded by miracle and mystery. We’re glad he could share…but hoping we didn’t tap him of his mojo right before the New England Patriots game.

hello world


We are about to do three things that should make you happy:

1- Make the site much, much easier to use. We’re systematically going through the site page by page, click by click, and making it simpler. You deserve that.

2- Give our current customers lots of new friends, so they can look back and say that all the new guys are just “jumping on the bandwagon” and that “we were customers of Name.com before everyone knew about them.” Hey, it’s cool to be first. We’re going to help make sure the whole world knows how cool you are.

3- Help you. We work hard to make sure we have what you need, but this year we’re taking it to the next level...

GoDaddy, SOPA, Promo Codes, and some Transfer Tips


Now you know how powerful you are. GoDaddy has changed their position on SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). They were for it, and now, after you transferred your domains and voiced your opinion, they’re against it.

Danny Luksa put together this simple and probably Not-Safe-For-Work illustration of what went down.

Illustrations and jokes aside, what’s important here is that a flawed piece of legislation has lost a major backer. So we’re not going to kick GoDaddy while they’re down. We’re moving forward (with your help, thank you) with our effort to get politicians to back away from this giant, stinking pustule of freedom-pinching poo. Our new promo code is ‘STOPSOPA’.

For those of you determined to transfer, now through the end of the year use the promo code, “STOPSOPA” for 10% off transfer ins

Getting on our SOPA Box (and saving you money)


So it’s a little freaky to stand on a SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) box and proclaim one thing or another. However, there are two things we know:

1) No one likes piracy, but even more so

2) People love their FREEDOM!

Oh, and there’s a third thing:

3) How to Transfer from GoDaddy.

Now through the end of the year use the promo code, “NODADDY” for 10% off transfer ins (COM, NET, ORG, TV, INFO, IN, US, CO, ME & TEL) and also receive 40% off any of our hosting plans!

That’s what we know. You may think we don’t know counting, but we do. We know we can count on you to make the right decision. OK, that was cheesy. We also know BS and call it when we see it.

Name.com’s official stance: Name...
