Many years ago the World Wide Web made a promise. It told people that they could build their own website and it would look sleek and pretty. Many websites were made, but many people were disappointed. Many websites have been abandoned, fading away as low-price, low-quality promises on the lonely outskirts of the Internet.

But today, we are here to fulfill that promise. Today … we introduce Name.com’s website builder.

The story of Name.com + Scroll Kit.


This is Pat, a.k.a “Fro” one of our ninja developers. He peruses the Interwebs like a BOSS, catching every viral video and trend weeks before hitting the masses. One day his online adventures lead him to a hackernews article about Scrollkit.com. Immediately intrigued about the product created by the dynamic designer + coder duo, he started playing around. Naturally wanting to be a part of something so hot, he kicked an email out to share with the team. It didn’t take long for the positive feedback to roll in. Bill (CEO, founder, Chief) caught word and reached out to former Denverite, and Founder of ScrollKit.com, Cody Brown. The meeting of the minds went well and here we are a week or two later, offering Scroll Kit to you!

It’s majorly badass so jump in and get your hands dirty...

SEO Series Part 2: Why Link Structure is So Important!


(If you’ve just shown up, click here for Part I of the SEO How-to Series. And welcome)

Links = Votes!

Links as votes is a helpful analogy to remember. Basically, if Page A links to Page B, then Page A is casting a vote that Page B is relevant to the keywords used in the link text or anchor text connecting the 2 pages (example: in the link to Name.com at the end of this sentence the “link text” or “anchor text” is domain name). In addition, votes can be stronger or weaker depending on factors like overall trust of the link, PageRank of the page it came from, and even how significant the relationship between Page A and Page B is.

In other words, the more votes that Page B gets, the higher the likelihood it will rank higher for keywords...

Name.com Daily Tut: Installing and Using Apple iTunes Match


It used to be difficult to pick which person at Name.com was the biggest Apple Fanboy/girl. Then along came Michael and, it’s clear, none of us can compete. He has every gadget and he knows everything about every gadget. That’s a big step, going from wannabe Fanboy/girl to the real deal Fanboy/girl, as many people use only about five percent of their Apple product’s potential. Michael uses it until he’s in sync, as if he embodies its technology. It’s weird, especially when he needs something and uses your face as a touchscreen. But we get many uses from Michael (I’ve heard his computer say his name like that car in Knight Rider) including incredible web design and these useful Apple tutorials.

As you can see it works!
