You’ve probably heard of a URL before—but if someone asked you what it is and what it does, would you still know the answer? If not, read this quick explanation of the purpose of a URL.
New Domains aren’t so new anymore, and they’re becoming a big part of the internet
When ICANN first revealed the list of New Domain applications in June 2012, the idea of straying beyond the few domain names available on the internet at that time was hard to comprehend. Years later, there are more than 1,000 domain extensions that are available for registration. Even so, the majority of the population still has very little knowledge that there are options like .NINJA, .LAWYER, or .ROCKS available for their website.
But “very little” knowledge about New Domain names is a significant step from “no knowledge at all,” and frankly, an enormous leap for those who are in the domain industry. In fact, as little as two years ago most people still had no idea what a domain name was.
It’s hard to come up with promo codes and not fall into cliche mode. This time of year “the leaves are falling and so are our prices” is a popular one. “Harvest great domains deals” is another. I mean you want to keep it familiar but without using Rocktober for the millionth time. We think we’ve found a compromise with PUMPKIN as the promo code and the cute, catchy phrase, “Carve out your space on the web.” And you’re probably like…”WHO THE @%@% CARES, JUST GIVE ME A DEAL!” And that we will. Lots of them. We have discounted .US domain names and .EU addresses and .ME domains and .ORG deals…and now promo code PUMPKIN gets you COM/NET registration AND renewal at $10.25 each.
So don’t be afraid this Halloween season, buy a freakin’ domain name.
Oh, you know those places that get you in for cheap and then kill you on the renewal…that’s not us. We’re all treats and no tricks…despite the frightening amount of cliches you might have to endure.
