Your TV is Next in Google’s Quest for World Domination

This fall Google hopes to solve the disjointed relationship between the web and TV with Google TV. Using both Android and Chrome, Google TV is basically a search engine for your TV — integrating with your cable box and indexing however many hundreds of channels you have with whatever is available on the web. It lets you watch what you want when you want.

While this will no doubt have an impact on TV, some are also wondering what this means in the world of domains. For .TV it’s probably not too bad a thing. The idea of a one stop shop for your video content is essentially what the .TV extension is made for, and Google is taking the concept mainstream. This can only help drive awareness for the already popular extension and we think you’ll start to see it crop up in a lot more places.

As big believers in .TV we hope that with the best prices and best support you’ll think of Name.com when you go to register your .TV, and our new pricing should definitely help in that regard! Starting today we are now offering one year .TV registrations for the low price of $10.99! But wait..it gets better. If you register a .TV for two or more years, you get it for the super low price of just $9.99/year. Still want more? For the month of June you can use the code SHOWTIME for $29.99 .TV renewals!

This brings the pricing for .TV registrations within a couple bucks of .COM and breaks down the $10, $20, and even (at some registrars) $30 price difference that may have prevented you from jumping on the .TV bandwagon. With that barrier gone, now’s your chance to join the fun!

WE

To show our appreciation, we have a little something for you — starting right now, May 28 at 12:00AM MST (0700 UTC), we are running a special one day promotion on .COM, .NET, and .ME registrations. When you use the code WE<3YOU at checkout you can get .COM and .NET registrations for only $7.49 and .ME registrations for the super low price of $5.49! This promotion will expire in exactly 24 hours, so you’ll have to act quickly to take advantage of these great prices.

Cheers and we hope you have a great weekend!

This Week is National Small Business Week!

For all the entrepreneurs out there, National Small Business Week is upon us! A tradition that has been around since the ’60s, National Small Business Week is an event that honors the 27 million small businesses in the United States and some of the top entrepreneurs in the country. This year it falls on the week of May 23-29, and while the main event is held in Washington D.C., there are a number of other cities that celebrate this week with their own events, Denver being one of those cities.

The Denver Metro Small Business Development Center has posted a schedule (pdf) of the events they have lined up next week. There are some interesting sessions ranging from the effects of healthcare reform on your business to the future of technology and marketing. We’re looking forward to meeting and networking with some of our fellow Denver businesses!

Now it’s no secret that we love small business at Name.com, so in honor of Small Business Week we’ve decided to put together some discounts for our small business customers. Until May 30th, if you purchase a hosting plan, and/or any SSL certificates and use the promo code SMALLBIZWEEK, you will get 25% off off either of those items!

Cheers and happy Small Business Week!

.TEL at Macworld!

.TEL booth at Macworld

Heard of .TEL? It’s pretty darn cool. It’s a low cost TLD that acts as a digital business card — a single point of contact that allows people to access all of your contact information on an easy to manage website. The best part is no hosting costs are required, everything is included in the cost of the domain, which Name.com happens to sell for just $9.99 $8.99!

Our friends from .TEL, Justin and Henri, were at Macworld to show off their two impressive (and open source!) iPhone apps that allow you to manage your .TEL domains and all of your .TEL contacts easily and quickly directly from your phone. My.TEL (app store link) is the domain management tool and Superbook (app store link) is the contact management tool. It’s pretty awesome to see how fast Superbook loads this information (even using the less than stellar 3G network in San Francisco), which is due to their clever use of DNS to transmit the data.

Check out this video to see just how fast the apps are and how easy it is to manage your sites.

.TEL demo at Macworld from Name.com on Vimeo.

Here at Name.com we’re big fans of .TEL and we take pride in the fact that we are the leading .TEL registrar. In addition to having the best prices, we offer extra management tools for your .TEL domain that you can’t find at any other registrar. Since .TEL can act also as a directory, Name.com allows you to add new accounts to your domain without giving them access to your main account, and that’s just one of the cool things you can do.

To take advantage of the $8.99 price, use the code MACWORLD when you checkout. We’ll be running that promo until the end of the month, so check it out and be sure to TEL us what you think. 😉
