Register a domain and get a free puppy


In an effort to show their appreciation for each and every person who buys a domain name with name.com, the Denver-based domain registrar is offering a groundbreaking promotion where every new domain name comes with a free puppy.

Steve Banfield, general manager of name.com, says that he’s never been a part of something so important and exciting. “To see the look on the customer’s face when they think they’re just getting a new .COM and they end up with an excitable Labradoodle … it just makes you realize the impact a domain can have on a person’s life,” said Banfield, who’s fresh off a nationwide tour discussing the new program.

The cornerstone of the company’s latest promotion is the use of 3-D printing. The exciting new technology has made printing new pets a breeze. According to Shannon Brown, the company’s product manager, all they need is a photo and a good home. “We’ve printed iguanas, cats, and some woodland creatures, but the puppies are by far the most popular,” Brown said while relaxing after a day of managing a web developing team and house training a freshly-printed platypus.
