The Name.com Website Builder is Here


Remember when…

Many years ago the World Wide Web made a promise. It told people that they could build their own website and it would look sleek and pretty. Many websites were made, but many people were disappointed. Many websites have been abandoned, fading away as low-price, low-quality promises on the lonely outskirts of the Internet.

But today, we are here to fulfill that promise. Today … we introduce Name.com’s website builder.

Curb election spending with a .DEMOCRAT


Right now, during the intensity (insanity?) of a midterm election, .DEMOCRAT domain names are only $24.99.

The easy sell here is that with $7 billion spent during the 2012 Presidential cycle, then what’s $24.99 for a .DEMOCRAT domain?  But the truth is that only a very small percentage of candidates have even a thousand bucks—let alone a BILLION—to spend on their campaigns, so before you drop a single dime, make sure you’ve got the right domain and the right website.

You don’t even have to get on a bike to win a with a bicycling team. We’re following road bike racer Adam Jensen to victory. And here’s the exciting part: when he wins, you win. Jensen is not only a customer support legend here at name.com, but he’s also a road bike racer (skinny tires, lycra). Every weekend he rides in some of the most arduous races in the country. We’ll follow up with him every Monday to find out how he fared. He hasn’t won yet, but he’s been close.

The Name.com Scavenger Hunt and the triumph of the Thunder Dragons


Every now and then we shut down the Name.com office for a few hours and gather everyone together for some wholesome team-building exercises (in other words, we act goofy and have some beers). Last Friday was one of those days, as we divided into teams for a scavenger hunt that took us (err … most of us) all over Denver.

The rules

  • Teams were chosen randomly and given a sheet of clues. The clues directed us to treasure balls (vending machine capsules) hidden throughout the city.
  • First team to return with all treasure balls wins
  • No driving allowed. Bikes, walking, taxis, public transit … all fair game.
  • Additional prizes were awarded for best team picture, most awkward New Domain sales pitch, and most team spirit.

The hunt

Nic Steinbach (the Artist Formerly Known As New TLD Nic) and Ashley Forker (not a great go-kart driver) planned the scavenger hunt with a dozen destinations, mostly in the LoDo/LoHi area and around our Cherry Creek office. We had to collect a treasure ball at each destination, sometimes from a friendly bartender (Denver Beer Company, The Fainting Goat, Milwaukee Street Tavern …) who awaited us with an open bar tab.

Video tutorial: How to verify your contact information


As of Jan. 1, the contact information for domain name registrations has to be verified (it’s a new ICANN requirement). The verification process is extremely simple: when you register a domain, you can choose to receive a verification code either over the phone or via email. You’ll then use that code at Name.com to complete the verification.

It’s a one-time verification, so you won’t have to do it again unless you change your contact info. Here’s a video tutorial that details the verification process:
