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.

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.
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:
Ahh, how the time flies. It seems just yesterday that .NINJA was a newborn. Now it’s one year old. It’s grown so big! It’s taken its first steps! It’s eating solid food! It’s sleeping through the night … sometimes!
To celebrate, .NINJA domain names will be just $0.99 during Thursday’s Bottoms Rupp Happy Hour (May 28, 2015). The promo code will be announced at 3 p.m. MST, so bookmark the Bottoms Rupp page and check back for the code to join in on the savings.

Buying gifts doesn’t have to be painful. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to get dressed. So pull up a chair or fall into a beanbag and be informed and entertained by our Geek Gift Guide.
We went to GABF and asked this important question:
That same week we ended up in a taxi cab in NYC:
And then came home to Sparkly prattling about Potter:
But that was hardly as annoying as my attempt to show we don’t upsell:
Yet that was countered by Craig Walker from the Denver Post sharing tips on how you too can win a Pulitzer prize in photography:
And all the brilliance of name.com winning the Rigthside Hackathon…
Oh…and we’re helping Rightside recruit by showcasing their one simple trick for a better workplace:
Internationally as well…
When you’re approached by a fantastic group of women who want you to share in their love of craft beer, you make the most of the opportunity. What we didn’t realize is how much fun Colorado’s Barley’s Angels would be. After some beverages we hatched (brewed?) a plan to infiltrate the Great American Beer Festival at the Denver Convention Center. To say that the GABF is big is an understatement. This year it hosted over 49,000 people and offered nearly 4000 beers. How would we break through the teeming masses and get the word out about Colorado’s premiere group of femme ferments and our brand new .BEER domain name?
We’d listen. That’s right, a trick not completely unknown but is on the verge of extinction.
Here’s how you get a television show: You send your resume to a network and then they go bonkers and immediately draw up a contract. Or at least that’s how it happened for Sara Bendrick, who in one year went from landscaper to the host of I Hate My Yard on the DIY network. Truth is, she’s a landscaper before anything else, yet now she has to add the title of Internet Marketer. Don’t we all? No matter what we’re doing or creating, we have to be able to hustle. It’s the truth in an information saturated media landscape. It’s also why she joins us on The Web Address. We’re going to talk to Bendrick and her hired help (and name.com customer) Ashley “Networking Queen” Kingsley about what they plan to do to grow the popularity of her show. The DIY network has left it up to her (apparently they really live up to the Do-It-Yourself name) and we’re going to follow the show’s online growth.
