We’re starting the month off right with a sale you’ll love. This Thursday Nov. 5, 2015 from 3-5 p.m. MST, register the .COM or .NET domain of your choice for just $0.99 during the Bottoms Rupp Happy Hour! But hold your horses—before you can take advantage of this deal you have to do one thing.
The November promo code is some serious comfort food
It’s starting to get pretty chilly here in Denver, which means it is the perfect time to indulge in delicious, calorie-filled foods in the name of staying warm. That’s why this month’s promo code is the tastiest of cheesy, breadcrumby, artery-clogging goodness.
Video | It’s football season at Name.com
We’re pretty much a bunch of self-admitted nerds over here at Name.com, but that doesn’t mean that we’re completely hopeless when it comes to sports. So in honor of football season, we’re doing our best to embrace our inner athlete.
.LIVE and .STUDIO are here
The long awaited day has finally arrived: .LIVE and .STUDIO are now available for general registration! Individuals, business owners, and more can create memorable primary and secondary URLs with these two distinctive domains. After months of waiting, and a whole lot of anticipation, we cannot wait to see all of the unique and interesting web addresses our customers will come up with using .LIVE and .STUDIO.
Video | The web is awesome because…
When it all comes down to it the web is pretty friggin’ sweet. Even though we may be more biased than some folks (after all, none of us would have jobs if the internet wasn’t a thing), we think that most of you agree. After all, the internet offers a wealth of information, endless shopping opportunities, and enough funny cat videos to sustain you for days on end.
Introducing one-click setup for your live streaming needs
With the release of .LIVE just one day away, now is a good time to consider how live streaming as we know it may change as the internet continues to evolve. People want access to events, information, and experiences as they happen, and live streaming is one of the most dynamic ways to do so.
We’re big fans of third-party services that allow businesses and individuals to live stream to their audience, but we also think there’s an opportunity to optimize your brand at the same time. That’s why we’re excited to introduce Periscope and Twitch to Name.com Apps, allowing you to connect custom domain names to streaming profiles with just the click of a button.
Bottoms Rupp: $4.99 .FORSALE, .SALE, & .MARKET
What do you sell? Cars? Real estate? Portraits of Michael Jackson made entirely of noodles?
No matter what it is you sell, this week’s Bottoms Rupp Happy Hour is going to get you a great deal on the domains that are just for online sellers.
In the dark of the night lurks a Name.com vigilante who fearlessly tackles the nasty bugs that customers may come across while browsing the site—Batman!
No seriously, we have a designated Name.com Batman. Our super talented dev crew takes turns donning the cloak for a few weeks at a time so they can focus on tackling any issues our customers may encounter while doing their domain and web service shopping.
EU customers: Here’s how to add a VAT ID to your Name.com account
If you live in a country that’s a member of the European Union, you’re likely already familiar with Value Added Tax, or VAT. We began collecting the required tax from our customers located in the EU back in September for business-to-consumer transactions.
But if you are a business-to-business company, we have good news: You may be exempt from VAT! All you have to do is submit your VAT ID from within your Name.com account.
We’re heading to Seattle Startup Week next week (come find us!)
We’re sponsoring Seattle Startup Week next week, and are beyond excited to participate in a week of startup glory with our favorite Seattle-area tech friends. You may be wondering why exactly we decided to sponsor Seattle Startup Week when Name.com is based in Denver. The short answer: Seattle is awesome! The long answer: We wanted to support this Startup Week because of the amazing talent and ambition that the builders and entrepreneurs of Seattle have. The level of excitement and high caliber of ideas that come out of the Seattle area made supporting Seattle Startup Week an easy choice. As an added bonus, our parent company, Rightside, is based in Kirkland, so this is a simple way for us to spread the word about Rightside while promoting Name.com in a fun way.
