Unbounce CTA recap: pub crawls, juice, and panels galore

We spent two beautiful days in Vancouver early last week at the Unbounce CTA Conference, which was jam packed with influential speakers and interesting topics. Marketers from all over the world swarmed the Name.com booth first thing Monday morning to take advantage of the free domains, swag, and wealth of knowledge we offered about New Domains. Our Project Refresh completely rejuvenated attendees’ mindsight on how to use New Domains to their advantages.

Rightside’s own DJ STATN to perform at NamesCon

By day, Statton Hammock is the VP, Business & Legal Affairs at Rightside and our go-to expert on all things business, legal, and registry operations policy. But in his free time, Statton has a very different hobby—mixing tracks and DJing at events as his alter ego, DJ STATN.

We’re very excited to announce that DJ STATN will be keeping the NamesCon crowds pumped up while performing at the conference’s Sunday Night Cocktail Party!

5 of our favorite startups using New Domains at Web Summit

We made the long trek from Denver to Dublin for Web Summit recently and it was a fantastic time that was definitely worth the journey. We learned lesson after lesson in Dublin and saw opportunity after opportunity for not only the tech industry as a whole, but also for New Domains in particular.

On the New Domain front, we saw dozens of startups using New Domains as their primary URL for business websites. This is a stark contrast to the behavior and feelings regarding New Domains that we encountered in the past at similar events. Just a year ago we were hearing skepticism from the startup community regarding New Domains, but we’re now seeing both personal adoption and adoption from up-and-coming businesses.

To highlight some of the great usage of New Domains that we saw at Web Summit, we created a list of some of our favorites (in no particular order):

We went to Web Summit and this is what happened

Web Summit: It’s a place where CEOs, startups, leaders, and innovators come together to network, drink beer, and discuss all things technology.

We headed to Dublin last week for this renowned event and had a blast interacting with attendees from all walks of life. But where there is work, there must be play, and there was certainly plenty of both. While it’s impossible to sum up the entirety of our trip in a single post, there were a few highlights of our Web Summit experience.
