It’s the world’s most popular sport. Its signature event is taking place in Brazil right now. It’s a word that’s recognized all over the world, regardless of language. And on top of all that, it’s the Name.com promo code for July 2014: FUTBOL. Use it at checkout and .COM and .NET registrations and renewals will be just $10.25.
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.
Are you thinking about a .PUB domain name for your pub or restaurant? If so you’ve got until July 9, 2014 to take an advantage of an awesome opportunity on .PUB domains.
The .PUB registry has decided that there will be no premium-priced .PUB domain names.* So even if you’re after a premium-quality .PUB—think of domains like cityname.pub,theme.pub, or lastnames.pub—you can secure it for the price of a Pre-Registration ($34.99) or Priority Pre-Registration ($199.99.)
If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Twitter, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve recently gone ninja crazy, because .NINJA has just been released.

We’re really pumped to see what awesome creations everybody ends up putting on their .NINJA domains!
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. He’s had some seconds and thirds and occasionally some really awesome wrecks, so whatever happens, at least it’ll be fun to follow.
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.

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:
New Domains are now available for immediate registration and use, creating some awesome opportunities for getting a new blog or website online. But what if you already have an established web presence? You don’t want to lose the people who are familiar with your current domain name, but you may also want to take advantage of a New Domain. We’ll show you how to have your cake and eat it too.
