Giveaway: Win a pair of Beats Studio headphones!
We’re pretty excited about the upcoming launch of .STUDIO, which will reach general availability as of Wednesday Oct. 28, 2015. To get you as pumped up about .STUDIO as we are, we’re offering you the chance to win a pretty sweet prize in our upcoming giveaway.
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.
Verisign, the registry that operates .COM domain names, is currently accepting entries for a big .COM contest, and the grand prize is $30k. So do you want $30k? What a silly question! Who wouldn’t?! Excitement! Exclamation points!!!
We’re giving away an iPad Mini with our friends from .DESI. .DESI is the brand new domain name extension derived from Sanskrit and refers to the culture, people, and products originating from the Indian sub-continent (India, Pakastan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka).
Entering to win the iPad Mini is extremely easy. To enter, all you have to do is use the widget below and select to do just one, a few, or all of the giveaway entry methods. The methods of entry include: Tweeting about the giveaway, liking .DESI on Facebook, following .DESI on Twitter, liking name.com on Facebook, following name.com on Twitter, joining the mailing list, search for and tell us the .DESI domain name that you found.
One person will win a black iPad Mini 16GB.
There are a lot of geeks here at name.com, which probably has us a bit extra pumped up about our newest giveaway. This giveaway is for the brilliantly geeky premium domain name code.ninja! You’re psyched, we’re psyched, we’re high fiving each other all of the place, and it’s awesome.
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.
When we last left off, we were explaining how you can get a free .BIKE domain name. It all starts…and finishes…with Adam Jensen, name.com support legend and rapidly ascending road bike racer. Every weekend he races, and every weekend he gets closer and closer to victory. And here’s the deal: when he wins a race, the first 20 people to contact jared at name dot com (upon our announcement of the victory on YouTube and this blog) win a .BIKE domain for their website.*
In less than two weeks, the much anticipated .NINJA becomes available! Yes, that’s right, you’ll be able to get yourname.ninja! That’s pretty sweet and we’re beyond excited about this. Why is everyone at name.com so thrilled about this you ask? We’re obviously excited because ninjas are awesome. We can prove the awesomeness of ninjas by sharing three of the best ninja facts we know:
- When ninjas eat a cheeseburger, it turns into a salad in their stomach.
- Ninjas carry crickets in their pocket.
- Ninjas are really good at telling time.
Denver 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.
