And now to Ignite Denver


Ignite denver tickets

and tacos and fun.

This will be the 10th Ignite Denver that Name.com has been a part of. Why? Because it’s the perfect blend of brains, beer, and another word that starts with b and means “packed theater of community goodness and hilarity and free stuff.” It’s that good. That’s why we’d like you to join us at the Oriental Theater this Thursday, October 9th. The doors open at 6 and the show is at 7. We’ll even give you a free t-shirt. All you need to do is get your ticket at IgniteDenver.org.

It’s the kind of mind-blowing debauchery that comes with all the fun and none of the guilt.

So what the heck is Ignite Denver? It’s people from all over the area who have 5 minutes on stage to share their passion for … well, anything. It doesn’t matter...

Galvanize gSchool Domain Hackathon on October 3rd


gSchool-Header

We’re a fan of hackathons, so when the opportunity to support a domain name focused hackathon at Galvanize’s gSchool was presented to us, it was a natural fit. The way that this hackathon works is that all the teams are told a single domain name at the beginning of the event to build something for and then have two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. Which ever team builds the most creative idea for the domain wins. It’s a pretty simple concept that definitely seems like it could birth some goofy, fun, and cool ideas.

Speed up Your Website | The Web Address Ep. 6


We were perusing Entrepreneur Magazine (you may recall our appearance in the prestigious publication) and we came across a Boulder company sharing some dire news: If you’re a small or medium business and your website isn’t loading fast enough, then you’re going to have a hard time competing. The Amazons and Ebays of the world have entire teams dedicated to optimizing their websites. What they don’t have, however, is one Mr. Robert Shires. He’s part of the brilliant team behind Lagrange Systems, a company dedicated to turning your eCommerce up to the speed of mind-blowing astonishment. Shires isn’t only technically savvy, but also hilarious, so you get necessary information about improving your website speed (aka Application Delivery) without drowning in tech talk. And, as you’ll see, we’ve taken measures to make sure he stays away from mind-numbing buzzwords.

Name.com Promo Code for October 2014: It’s all about you…


hackathon-header
Every month we brainstorm what our latest promo code should be. This time of year there are plenty of sports activities with football, baseball and now hockey starting up. A lesser domain registrar might settle for “tackle” or some such as their magical discount word, but we feel the big sports get enough attention as it is. That’s why we’re going bigger and better than usual mainstream fare and we’re coming up with a promo code that really matters. We’re bringing in the most important person in this exchange and that is YOU. That’s right, this month’s promo code is “YOU.” There’s plenty of reason to celebrate you. You’re bombarded with ads and promises, your told your hair needs more body and your smile more shine. To heck with those marketing fiends...

We’re having a hackathon on Thursday and Friday!


hackathon-header

We’re having a hackathon on Thursday and Friday, which is going to be a spectacular display of geek meets wizardry. That’s right, we’re making some magical stuff! The only real rules for the hackathon are:

  1. Can’t work on work.
  2. Must create something New TLD related.

So, what is a hackathon?

If you’re not sure what a hackathon is, it’s essentially a codefest. This means that it’s an event where we rapidly develop and prototype ideas that are unrelated to our everyday work duties and drive our business forward. In this case, we’ll be making products or features that promote New TLD adoption and usage. Once the prototypes of the ideas are built, they’ll be voted on internally, and then a few products or Name.com features will be given the resources to keep living on.

It’s no joke. You can get a .BEER.


On April 1, 2011 we told the world that .BEER was here. It was a joke of course, but excitement ensued. People were so thrilled that they overlooked April Fool’s Day and the inquiries poured in as to how they could get a .BEER. Well … that was then.

With the new .attorney and .lawyer domains names being released, we thought we’d find a fun way to get involved with the legal tech community. That’s why when we stumbled upon the Seattle Legal Tech Startup Weekend, we knew we had to be a part of the event because there’s nothing more fun than geeking and building awesome (legal tech) companies in just 54 hours.
