Contests

Name.com Customer Rakes in Cash from .COM


There should be a business version of “stop and smell the roses” that goes something like “pause right now and talk to your customers.” Whenever we do we learn a lot, and Adam is no exception. We were excited enough to hear that a namer had won the Verisign .COM domain contest–well, he’s a semifinalist, but he has a check for five grand on the way–yet we were blown away that this is a guy behind the Singing Dogs because, for reals, he plays the saxophone and his dogs sing along. No, really, check out the video above.

We’re a bit giddy about the dogs, but we should tell you something about the contest. Verisign, the digital deities behind such Internet behemoths as .COM and .NET, challenged domain shoppers to get the best possible .COM domains...

The first rule of .CLUB: Talk about .CLUB (and win an iPad)


win-ipad-header

Just so we’re clear, you’re not about materialism or consumerism or any kind of ‘ism’ that would steal from you as a person, right? Yes? Good. You’re bigger than that. You are a luminary of thought and enlightenment who transcends the throngs clamoring for yet another gadget in their already cluttered life. Because of this, you deserve at least one new toy.

Oh, and the second rule of .CLUB? Talk about .CLUB. And people seem to be following the rules. The word has gotten out and .CLUB is now the #1 New Domain registered on name.com. In honor of this awesome milestone, we’ve got a new contest where everything you’ve ever known about contests is totally out of whack.

It is simply known as THE BIG BET


name.com-vs-eNomDenver vs Seattle.

Name.com vs eNom.

Fun loving versus … whatever eNom is.

I know what you’re thinking: “Is this really even a competition?” You might also be thinking, “What in the heck is an eNom?” Good questions. eNom is a domain registrar, kind of like name.com, and we’re both members of the Rightside family. We’re of course located in Denver, and they’re headquartered in the Seattle area.

Given that there’s a fairly significant Denver vs. Seattle football contest on the horizon, we thought we’d take advantage of this fortunate coincidence and place a little bet on the game.

We’ve got a new contest … so now even Seattle fans can win


We don’t want to get too cocky, so here in Denver, we’re doing our best to share our Big Game joy with the entire world. So we created a contest that gives you a great chance to save some money on domains. There are two ways to enter:

Option 1: Use a promo code

When you register a new .COM or .NET domain name between now and kickoff, let us know which team will win by entering either DENVER or Seattle as the promo code during checkout. If the team you pick wins, then we’ll send you a sweet deal for a new $5 COM/NET domain.

Option 2: Put on your dancing shoes

If you’re not into purchasing anything, then you can get your special $5 domain promo code by sending us a video of you doing a celebratory touchdown dance (that somehow expresses your affection for name.com) to biggame@name.com...
