SXSW in 30 seconds


SXSW-38

We were at SXSW Interactive last week and, yes, we’ll admit we’re still recovering. The festival has grown so much that it’s a little overwhelming to try and keep up, but we managed to find our fair share of great panels, parties, and people. Here’s a little video we threw together with the footage we got when we actually remembered to use our camera. :)

Domain registrations close in on 200 million, what this means for the consumer


Verisign has recently reported that TLD registrations are closing in on the 200 million mark. There’s no denying it — this number is huge. It can also be intimidating for the average consumer to hear this. With 200 million domain names registered there can’t possibly be any good ones left. Wrong.

Just about every day we spend listening on Twitter we hear people say how surprised they are at how many good domain names are still available. You just have to start being creative. If you’re not necessarily the creative type, there are tools out there to help you. Take our Domain Suggestion Tool for example.
