A scholarly spin on #HacktheDot
While watching our lovely news programs, have you ever taken a second to think, “Hmmm, what has happened to our news?” Or, “Are the Kardashians really that important?” Well, next month’s hackathon will leave you feeling empowered with ideas on how to create sustainable journalism without the sensationalism.
For any of you that haven’t been #blessed with attending our noteworthy #HacktheDots, this will be the ultimate first-timer.
Office kitchen justice is best served cold
If you haven’t already figured it out, we take our dish washing etiquette very seriously at the Name.com office. Because if you don’t, you invoke the wrath of our office manager, Kristen. When one of our employees was caught red handed committing a heinous dish washing offense, shenanigans ensued.
We won Radix’s Frame a TLD contest and earned a day at the theme park
A couple months ago, we entered Radix’s Frame a TLD contest, held in honor of the registry’s second anniversary. We have participated in Radix’s contests in the past, and were even lucky enough to win the contest before. This year, we took our submission to the next level and our efforts paid off—we won once again!
The Name office transmogrified into Hogwarts for a day, and it was magical
Our office manager, Kristen, really likes Harry Potter. I mean, she really likes Harry Potter. So in celebration of Harry’s 36th birthday and just in time for the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Kristen threw us an epic Harry Potter party.
We’re hiring: Seeking amazing Customer Support reps
Name.com is looking for some awesome folks in the Denver area to join our Customer Support team. To show you how cool it is to work at the Name office, we created our own MTV Cribs-style video to give you a first-hand look at what it means to be part of our team.
Is the man behind Bottoms Rupp NOT actually the worst?
If you keep up with our Bottoms Rupp emails, you may have noticed one very peculiar detail: Every week there seems to be a new scathing comment about John Rupp tucked away in the header.
Our new office addition is the best thing that’s ever happened to us
We are so excited to say that we have a new addition to the Name.com team. We admired him from afar for many months, seeing all of the ways he was bringing happiness and inspiration to so many. After some extensive discussion, we decided he was a worthwhile investment for our team and brought him into the inner circle of Name.com.
Congrats to PIR’s #CashForGood winners, Hope for Limpopo

We’re wrapping up Health Week at Name.com
So we hate to say it, but here at the Name.com office health is not always our forte. Our kitchen is regularly stocked with M&Ms, potato chips, and sodas, and we end Fridays by drinking a beer or two from the kegerator. But our Office Manager Kristen challenged us to take one week to step up our exercise game, learn about living a healthy life, and choose carrots over cookies.
