What is Your Bearglecorn III High Score?

0

Warning: If you don’t want to get sucked into a really addictive Pacman-like computer video game, do not play Bearglecorn III.

In celebration of the launch of the .Games domain name extension, Name.com created a fun video game called Bearglecorn III. If you were wondering where they got the name from, Bearglecorn is Name.com’s mascot who is part bear, part-eagle, and part-unicorn (that must have been some party).

Anyway, Bearglecorn III is a fun game, and Name.com is offering prizes for the top three high scorers through October 5, 2016. See the website and the contest terms and conditions for all the details.

Again, this is the type of game you could get sucked into very easily! I have played for at least an hour so far and my high score is just over 17,000 (not in the top 10).

Kudos to Name.com for coming up with a fun way to promote the .Games extension.

Check Out the Name.com “Crib”

I want to share a funny video that was shared by Name.com. If you’re looking for a job in the domain space and are considering working at Name.com, the Name.com “crib” video might help seal the deal.

If you are in the Denver area or want to move there, here are some of the Name.com job opportunities that are available right now. First, you should watch the video:

Name.com Introduces Referral Program and Curated Search

I want to share an update from Name.com that will likely be of interest to their customers.

The company is bringing back its referral program that provides financial incentives for customers to get people they know to use Name.com products and services. I don’t have many names registered with Name.com, but the company offers a wide array of products that are easy to use. They have also been helpful to me on at least two occasions when I bought names registered there. It’s always nice to be able to refer friends to use a company that you like to use (as opposed to simply doing it for financial reasons).

Name.com also introduced a new “curated search” functionality that “simplifies the process of creating a personal website.” I have not tried it out, so I can’t really comment on it, but you can read more in the update below. They also wrote a blog post about the new functionality.

Here are the updates that Name.com’s  Allison Chowdhury shared with me:

Name.com Running #LoveWins Promo

0

Name.com is celebrating the US Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling with a special domain name promotion. The company is offering discounts on .LGBT and .Wedding domain names. The promo code the company set for this campaign is LoveWins, which is the popular hashtag that is trending on Twitter and Facebook right now.

Name.com Domain Name Discounts During “Bottom’s Rupp”

0

I wasn’t aware of this until yesterday, but Name.com has a weekly promotion for two hours every Thursday afternoon. From 3-5pm MST on Thursdays, Name.com runs a promo called “Bottom’s Rupp” (John Rupp is an account manager at the company). At this time each week, the company offers a variety of discounts and special offers on domain names and other services offered by the company.

The special promotions and discounts change each week. Many of the promotions are focused on new gTLD domain names. The company published a blog post about Bottom’s Rupp on the Name.com blog earlier this week. Name.com will provide a special promo code that is valid during the two hour Bottom’s Rupp event each week.

Known for its fun videos, Name.com created a

Google Apps for Work Offered by Name.com

I don’t know about you, but I use Google for just about everything with my business, including email, document sharing, storage, and more. I use different accounts for the different websites and businesses that I manage. Google Apps are relatively inexpensive, and they are fairly easy for me to use.

Name.com just announced that they are offering Google Apps for Work to its registrants. This allows for seamless integration with domain names that are registered at Name.com. The news was announced in a blog post yesterday, which also offered a free three week trial of the services.

Here’s what Name.com had to say in its blog post:

“Want to manage your domains at Name.com AND create custom email addresses AND have a Gmail inbox AND be able to collaborate in Google Drive with your coworkers?

We know that sounds like a lot of awesomeness to handle all at once. But it’s a real thing. Name.com is now offering the full Google Apps for Work suite. It’s your domain, combined with all of the awesome cloud-based apps—Gmail, Hangouts, Docs, Sheets, etc.—that Google provides. You can even try it for free for 21 days.”

I understand that Name.com is now the first
