Did you know there are easter eggs hidden on Name.com? No, not literal ones. We’re talking about the cool, sneaky feature kind of easter egg that you can find in movies, video games, or in this case, a website.
We actually have several of these little surprises hidden in various places on the Name.com website. Some you can find just by clicking around the site while others need a specific action for it to be revealed. In case you haven’t encountered any quite yet, we’ll point out four of them for you to check out!
We helped host Hack the Dot Seattle during Seattle Startup Week, and, as usual, the event was seriously fantastic. Forty-five coding school students, developers, designers, and Seattle startup community members gathered at Galvanize in Pioneer Square to unleash an epic amount of nerdiness on a .TECH domain name while devouring pizza and drinking great local beers.
We’re pretty much a bunch of self-admitted nerds over here at Name.com, but that doesn’t mean that we’re completely hopeless when it comes to sports. So in honor of football season, we’re doing our best to embrace our inner athlete.
When it all comes down to it the web is pretty friggin’ sweet. Even though we may be more biased than some folks (after all, none of us would have jobs if the internet wasn’t a thing), we think that most of you agree. After all, the internet offers a wealth of information, endless shopping opportunities, and enough funny cat videos to sustain you for days on end.
In the dark of the night lurks a Name.com vigilante who fearlessly tackles the nasty bugs that customers may come across while browsing the site—Batman!
No seriously, we have a designated Name.com Batman. Our super talented dev crew takes turns donning the cloak for a few weeks at a time so they can focus on tackling any issues our customers may encounter while doing their domain and web service shopping.
We spent the day with three of Colorado’s top Mom Bloggers (don’t say ‘Mommy’) to share with them the magic of domain names and ended up learning some things ourselves.
First off, those mimosas can really add up. (MOMosas?) You might want to bring your own champagne. Secondly, the things you can do with a domain name are far more satisfying than a visit to a boutique salon. Listen, my fingernails are fabulous and my pores have never felt more, um, porous, but the long-term effects of having an amazing web presence for 10 bucks will free up some cash for even more beauty. Throughout this video I’m talking about a few of the most awesome and FREE benefits to owning the right domain … something that’s easier to get than ever before now that there are more domain names.
Remember last month when we participated in an all-company Hackathon and came up with tons of awesome product, service, and process improvement ideas? Five of those lucky teams were selected to compete at the Rightside office in a final, winner-takes-all round—and one of them came from Name.com!
We’ve got another Name.com hackathon under our belts! Last week we took a break from our typical workweek to focus on innovative projects of our choice over a three-day span. Employees in every department had the opportunity to collaborate on a project to make Name.com better.
The theme of this year’s hackathon was Back to Basics. Employees were challenged to look at our products, services, and processes with fresh eyes and come up with solutions and ideas for a better business. After throwing around some project ideas on Wednesday morning, the Name.com crew chose the top five ideas and spent the remainder of the week turning those concepts into a reality.
It’s not unlike wearing a suit to a meeting, but this meeting takes place in an amazing fantasy world and the people you’re trying to impress are in the millions.
Cosplay Day is on a Saturday, August 29, but we feel you should do a rehearsal Friday at work. If your boss is against it, remind him or her that a happy employee gets more work done…so you can imagine how awesome it would be to have a heroic comic book legend doing your collating.
The rules of cosplay in general are pretty basic. They’re summed up pretty well in this slightly edited meme:
