See what’s happening behind the scenes at name.com!

Hi everyone! After being on board with Name.com for just three weeks, I can honestly say that I work with an awesome group of people. The energy, creativity, and enthusiasm that I see from our team on a daily basis is inspiring. That being said, I can’t help but share a little bit of the awesomeness with you.

Now you can keep up with the shenanigans going on behind the scenes here at Name.com by following some of our company accounts:

And there will probably even be a few more to come (yes, we love social media!).

If silliness, beer, and ping pong aren’t your cup of tea — you can always follow our official company account on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook to keep up with the latest official news. Either way, don’t be a stranger. 🙂

Need a .ME for your ego?

.ME is about you! Yes you. If you have a personal website or blog and it needs that extra personal touch, then a .ME domain is a great choice!

Right now Name.com is offering .ME domains at the special rate of $9.95 for 1 year registrations. It’s a domain with a huge amount of potential and if you’re creative and original with the name that you choose, it can work wonders for your personal sites.

You can search for your very own .ME domain here and if you’d like to know a little bit more about the domain itself, you can check out our handy extension page here.

We’re hiring!

Hi folks! Name.com is looking to hire two customer support representatives to join our awesome support team.

With an office in beautiful Denver, CO, Name.com offers a fun work environment, great perks, and a chance to be a part of a very special team of people. You can find more details in our job listing here, we look forward to hearing from you!

Name has a Community Manager!

Hi, my name is Lesley and I’m happy to announce that I’m the new Community Manager here at Name.com! When you talk to us on Twitter, Facebook, or some random forum — that will most likely be me, nice to meet you. 🙂

Just a little about myself: I come to Name after acting as the community manager for Brightkite.com, a location-based social network. I was a film major, I’m an avid cyclist, I love baseball, and I’m a huge nerd. I’m also here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us, or even myself personally, if you have any questions or feedback.

I’m very excited to be working for a company like Name and you’ll be hearing a lot from me. I look forward to talking with you!
