We just got a big shipment of Name.com t-shirts and we’re itching to give them away!

This means that to get the most entries into this contest, you simply need to register for the name.com Website Builder, give it a spin, and tell us what you thought of the signup process. However, you can also enter this giveaway by:
The New Domain .DANCE is finally in general availability (GA)! That means that anyone who wants a .DANCE domain name can now get a .DANCE domain name. If you need a great website for your dance studio, or you’re a choreographer, or you’re anyone with rhythm and/or talent who needs some help getting your name out there, then find the .DANCE that is right for your business.
Also, in honor of this momentous occasion, we decided it would be a great idea to get you as pumped up about about this New Domain as we are.
We’re proud to join a growing crowd of tech companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter in supporting and restoring Net Neutrality.
What is Net Neutrality? To us, it’s what we’ve always assumed the Internet to be: a portal to an equal opportunity to be shared, enlightened and even paid. As Reuters reported, a collective of companies have asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to “take the necessary steps to ensure that the Internet remains an open platform for speech and commerce,” and we have a limited window to influence the FCC before they likely vote on new rules on May 15.
Every now and then we shut down the Name.com office for a few hours and gather everyone together for some wholesome team-building exercises (in other words, we act goofy and have some beers). Last Friday was one of those days, as we divided into teams for a scavenger hunt that took us (err … most of us) all over Denver.
In an effort to show their appreciation for each and every person who buys a domain name with name.com, the Denver-based domain registrar is offering a groundbreaking promotion where every new domain name comes with a free puppy.
Steve Banfield, general manager of name.com, says that he’s never been a part of something so important and exciting. “To see the look on the customer’s face when they think they’re just getting a new .COM and they end up with an excitable Labradoodle … it just makes you realize the impact a domain can have on a person’s life,” said Banfield, who’s fresh off a nationwide tour discussing the new program.
