We marry domain names and trends…

Imagine if your car’s wheels were something you completely overlooked and you had no concept of how they worked. It would seem like you shouldn’t even be driving. Well that’s the case with domain names: they turn the Internet into a functioning and ubiquitous convenience, but we feel they just don’t get the credit they deserve. So with this little program we showcase how domains can work in our culture, throwing a spotlight on their incredible usability.

So today, you’ll hear about available domain names for Madonna’s poor choice of performance accessories, as well as how you can use domains to share all the latest news on Google’s tumbling stock price. We also bring to you a domain name for the incredible story of an autistic girl and her dream of singing with pop star Katy Perry.

Rated PG for Pricey Google.

Red Bull Stratos, Bad Lip Reading of Debate, and Staff Fall Shows Suggestions on trenD

We marry trends and domains…

Jim Lehrer, the long-time frontman for PBS NewsHour, is not (as far as we know) known for comedy. But when some YouTubers who apparently have a lot of time and creativity do a lip reading to the first presidential debate, you just might lose yourself in laughter with Lehrer. We cover that important news, as well as the ridiculous free fall that was Felix Baumgartner jumping from 128,000 feet above the earth. He traveled at speeds of up to 833 miles per hour, and somehow is still alive. We celebrate his feat, and then bring up an important question beget by it.

Finally, we ask some Namers their favorite Fall TV shows. These people don’t have much free time, so if they recommend something, you know it’s got to be good.

Rated R for Really damn crazy dude leaping from space.

Lohan endorses Romney, Completely Wrong, Armstrong Doping Scandal, iPad Mini | trenD

Marrying domains and trends…

This week the Tour de Lance comes to a screeching halt as his legacy is tainted by the latest doping scandal. Are we too desensitized to care? Meh. But maybe he can share some of his performance enhancing secrets with President Obama in the next debate? And that brings us to the campaign trail, where Lindsay Lohan has endorsed Mitt Romney. No word if the Romney camp is clamoring for a photo op. Finally, we are taken into the nethers of the Internet, where according to Google, organic search results, not Googlebombing, are responsible for the “Completely Wrong” fiasco.

O’Reilly vs Stewart, Hulk Hogan tape, Mila Kunis sexy & Lady GaGa on trenD

We marry domain names and trends…

This week we get yet another sex tape, and like all the others, they steal from the overall goodness of the universe. If Hulk Hogan thinks he got away with faking it all those years in the ring, well there’s a pretty good chance his partner did the same to him in his far-far-from-romantic video romp. In other news, Hogan’s ex-wife Linda got a DUI, but no one’s sure if it’s because of the news of the sex tape, her recent breakup with her fiance, or if it’s just what happens when you drink and drive. We do have a positive story though. Mila Kunis, the young actress made famous by That 70s Show, has been named Esquire Magazine’s sexiest woman of the year, and Bill O’ Reilly and John Stewart offer a raucous debate that wouldn’t even put Obama to sleep.

Presidential Debate, Jenifer Livingston, Big Bird, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on trenD

Marrying domain names and trends…

This week we celebrate the toughness of a news anchor in Wisconsin. A viewer called her out as being a poor role model because of her weight; she struck back with a 4-minute on-air clip that has gone viral. From there we encounter more contention, this time something like fingernails on sheet metal as American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj quarrel over…well…we’re not sure. But Mariah says Nicki wants to shoot her. Barbara Walters has been brought in to help.

And finally, the presidential debate was a monster success, at least as far as TV viewers. Over 70 million people tuned in to see the entire free world whittled down to a giant yellow bird. We loved it.

Sync Domain Expiration Dates: Harmonize Your Domain Name Renewal

So Nick in dev made the exciting announcement about how you can now sync your domain name expiration dates. But before I pushed it live to the blog, I wanted to make sure he’d included everything…

Renew your domains all on the same date

That about sums up the name.com experience: Ultimate User Enjoyment. Nick explains:

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, and Legend (you know who you are),

We’re rolling out a new tool that will allow users to sync the expiration dates for their various domains. As of right now, this option is only available for .com and .net domains (sorry Henrik, you can’t sync your .se domains just yet).

On the page, the user will be able to select the new expire date, then select the domains that they want to have that new expiration date. Then, they must hit “Apply” for those sync products to be added to the cart. It will not allow the sync date to be before the current expiration date, or further out than 10 years (70 dog years) from the date of the sync, not the date of the current expiration date. The pricing is $1.15 per sync month, and if the sync is longer than a year, the users domain will be sync’d to the correct date of the year current, and then renewed until the desired expiration date is achieve. I really hope this makes sense and doesn’t come across a Jared-esque rant.

Please, let me know if you have any questions.

Please do let us know if you have any questions. You can hit us on Twitter or Facebook, or engage with our legendary customer support.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Aldean, Justin Bieber & Breast Cancer Awareness Month on trenD

Before we do anything, it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we should mention Breasts of Colorado, a very cool local project that is a lot of fun, and would be a great fundraiser for your community.

And now…to marry trends and domain names…

This week we made our HR department very nervous by discussing breasts a lot and loudly, but it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, and if you’re like most of us, you’ve been affected directly or indirectly by the savage beast that is cancer. Our big question is: “Do other cancers get near this much attention?” Of course not. These are breasts we’re talking about. We also discuss some other boobs, including Arnold Swarzenegger and country music star, Jason Aldean. Both of these guys have had to come out and apologize for extramarital affairs. What do we think about their activities? Well, we shouldn’t judge, but Justin Bieber offers a fitting tribute.

Romney vs Obama, NFL Replacement Referees, Apple Maps, Miley Cyrus Twitter on trenD

It’s always scary sauntering into politics in polarized times, but dang it, it’s our Democratic responsibility to be involved and to cherish the freedoms given to us by incredibly brave and pioneering men and women. That, and we’ve decided Mitt Romney needs some help. Obama dominates the Internet. You search Romney, and all you get is negative stuff. You search Obama and rainbows shoot out of Samuel Jackson. So we do that, and we talk about something even more important to America: The NFL has its real referees back!

Emmy 2012, Gangnam Style Parody, 47% Mitt Romney on trenD

Here we go…marrying trends and domains!

Today we come off a night of the Emmys and Sunday Night Football. It was hard not to pay more attention to the latter, even though the Emmys are supposed to be the big draw. However, there were some pleasant surprises, like Aaron Paul winning for his role in Breaking Bad; Jon Cryer finally getting some love for Two and a Half Men, and Claire Danes’ show, Homeland, raking in the statuettes. We then take on the 47%, which is pretty easy because they’re all lazy and don’t matter. From there, it’s yet another parody of Gangnam Style. This one could mean war.

Rated 53% for everyone else.
