They are as rare as a triple rainbow. They are as coveted as having Chuck Norris as your best friend. They are $0.99 .COM/.NET domain names, and they are coming to Name.com. Let’s do this in the kind of large font that screams urgency and excitement:
At the end of the day, what you’re really looking for in a domain is a great price and a memorable combination of words, right? You want something short and sweet, and you want good deal.
Well, you’re in luck. Right now .CO domain names are $7.99 through July 21.
It’s a truly great time to grab a .CO domain, and here’s a list of the totally-legitimate-and-not-at-all-contrived reasons:
- The current price is $7.99. They’re usually $12.99. You save $5 bucks per year off the regular price. Saving money is cool, right?
- We like to say that .CO domains are available, but what we really mean is that .CO domains are not taken. .CO is only three years old (happy birthday!), so you have a better chance of getting your first choice than you would with some other TLDs. And even though .CO is the new kid on the block, you get the same treatment from search engines as you would with other common extensions like .COM and .NET.
- .CO is two letters. That’s even shorter than .COM. I know I’m stating the obvious here, but there truly is no substitute for simplicity. A year from now their will be extensions like .ENGINEER and .CONSULTING and .ARCHITECT, and that’s awesome, but not as awesome as a two-letter, single-syllable extension that will be incredibly easy to remember (or better yet, impossible to forget!).
- There are some really cool .CO-specific benefits, especially if you’re a startup: promotional opportunities on go.co, invitations to tech events, discounts on cool services and resources, and more. You can find more about those perks at go.co.
Convinced yet? Join us in wishing .CO a happy 3rd birthday and start your .CO search now!
This is the best deal in the business. And when we say “business” we mean all businesses everywhere ever, because every entity out for success could use a quality domain for the least amount of money. Now hang onto yourself because I’m about to pull out the big font…
For a limited time get your brand new .TV domain for $10.99 per year for up to 10 years!*
If you’re not familiar with the domain industry, you might be like, “Heavens to Betsy, that’s over a hundred bucks!” But .TV annual renewals are ugly. You’re getting ten years for less than what three years of .TV typically costs anywhere else. Really. If you find a lower price, I’ll shave your name in my back.
But more about why this is important: .TV domains are coveted and memorable, they represent the video culture that is exploding on the Internet, and excellent availability means you can get the domain name you want.
Hold on…big font…
Don’t miss the greatest deal on the web!
*If the domain name is priced at $10.99. If it is priced at a premium rate (higher than 10.99) then you cannot register it for multiple years.
There’s a lot going on here. And in a good way, not in the “my mother was just arrested and my dog has scabies and I think this is a goiter” way that some of your more prolific Facebook friends seem to overshare in the most depressing way.
For you, WE HAVE DEALS ON DOMAIN NAMES. Let’s begin with the two biggest extensions: COM and NET. You can knock off money for both registration and renewal with promo code NEWUI.
Which brings me to another good thing: the promo code for COM/NET is NEWUI because we’re about to roll out our new account management UI (User Interface)! See this video about how awesome it is (if for anything to read the hilarious, off-color comment below it.)
AND, FINALLY, SOME MORE DISCOUNTED DOMAINS:
Do they call it Black Friday because it’s truly dark? It’s that time of year you loathe to go out, when people are trampled for TVs and tickle dolls. We’d like to remind you that we’re not going to judge anyone for getting a deal on a flat screen, but we’d also like to say that you don’t need to do anything but hang out at home and be yourself. You don’t need to die for a tickle doll.
This Cyber Monday…YOU DON’T EVEN NEED TO GET DRESSED.
To make that point, neither did we. Because, yes, we’re a company, but we’re not your typical place of business. We’re people. Flesh and blood and, well, flesh. No cover ups or tricky fees. Just happy humans…who know what you want from a customer experience because we know what we want from a customer experience: Deals, customer support, and people we know and trust.

OK, you don’t need someone shouting any more hype at you. Besides, it’s getting chilly in here.
*Offer expires midnight mst 11/28/12 and excludes .AG, .SC, .JOBS & .INFO registrations.
We’re running a special on domain name transfers right now (for a limited time only) that rivals free pizza and beer. OK, nothing is that good, but that’s one reason why you want to be with name.com: we’re open and honest. However, $6.99 COM/NET transfers for new accounts and $7.99 for existing Namers is really dang good, and we need your help in getting the word out. If we can recognize your effort in helping others bring their domain names to a better place, you could end up with a one-of-a-kind, suitable-for-framing CERTIFICATE OF AWESOMENESS.
But we’d like to help you help us. Sometimes it can be hard to work a conversation about domains into common situations, so we’re offering some talking points.
1. Any domain transfer comes with 1 year extension to registration. So, yes, if you have five months at your current registrar, you’ll have 17 months once you transfer.
2. Our customer support is amazing.
3. Name.com domains come with free email, free url forwarding, free social url forwarding and a free PageZen website.
4. The right domain name is the most effective yet least expensive marketing tool ever.
5. Name customers can come by the office for beer and crackers.
Here are some sample scenarios for bringing up domain names with friends, family and acquaintances:
Watching Sports with Friends
Option 1: “You think this is good, you should see Name.com’s COM/NET transfer special!
Option 2: “You’re wife is hot! Just kidding, did you know that Name.com has an attractive transfer special?”
Option 1: “Cheer up pal, at least you can transfer your COM/NET domain names to Name.com for just $6.99!”
Option 2: “Your choice of teams in pretty awful, but you can make up for it with the right domain registrar.”
Option 1: “I love what you’ve done with your hair! Are you celebrating transferring your domain names to Name.com?
(and that one could really be used for anything: “I love that belt buckle,” “You smell great,” “You must be working out…”)
Option 2: “I think we should go back to my place. And transfer domain names to your new Name.com account for only $6.99.”
Option 1: “I’m sorry dad, but that’s who I am and you’re just going to have to live with it. But I did just transfer my domains to Name.com for just $6.99.”
Option 2: “I don’t have the money I owe you, but I did just transfer my domains to Name.com for just $6.99.”
(and you can see how this could be used in so many situations)
Whole Foods: “Sweet Lord Baby that’s expensive! At least I did the cheapest domain name renewal ever by transferring my domain names to name.com”
Option 2: “Get me five more pounds of pudding. I saved transferring my domain names to name.com.”
Waiting in lobby, at a bus stop or riding in an elevator:
Option 1: “The weather sure has been crazy lately. At least you can count on Name.com’s super cheap transfer special for sunshine.”
Option 2: “The weather has just been fantastic! Of course I’m always warm with all these name.com domain transfer savings.”
Option 1: “That was as good as being able to transfer my COM/NET domain names to name.com.”
Option 2: “I’ll make it up to you by transferring your COM/NETs to name.com for only $6.99.”
