Batman, whiteboard art, and your daily dose of Name.com culture

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.

Blog like a mother | Using domain magic to get noticed online

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.

We’re celebrating another successful hackathon

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.

Rules and reasons for an extended Cosplay Day

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:

5 internet famous dogs we want to meet

As you probably know by now, Namers really like dogs. If you weren’t already clued in by the Pets section of our About Us page or our sexy pug video, here it is again: We really like dogs. In fact, we like them so much that we have a list of super cool, internet famous dogs that we wish would come visit us here in Denver. So in no particular order, here are five famous pooches we’re dying to meet. (Seriously. Please come see us.)

Denver Gives Week |The gift that keeps on giving

At Name.com we love seeing people happy. Even if you’re mad, we pride ourselves on turning that angry funk face upside down (pretty sure the frown version of that phrase is trademarked). With Denver Gives Week we got the chance to help with the world’s supply of happy by supporting hundreds of global nonprofits. They converged upon Denver to find out how they can help even more. The Denver Gives logo pretty much says it all.
