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.

In less than two weeks, the much anticipated .NINJA becomes available! Yes, that’s right, you’ll be able to get! That’s pretty sweet and we’re beyond excited about this. Why is everyone at 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:

It is simply known as THE BIG BET vs Seattle. 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, and we’re both members of the Rightside family.

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 to We’d love to see you dance. We love that we’re in the big dance. It’s happiness all around and we’re happy to have you be a part of it. And now a video that shares much the same information, but gets downright magical at about :32.
