Donuts Running BestName.Business Contest

Donuts is running a brand naming contest for entities that are using a new gTLD domain name extension. The winner of the BestName.Business contest will receive a $5,000 advertising budget courtesy of the registry. The contest is being run by Name.Kitchen, which is a name creation website operated by Donuts.

The winner gets a $5,000 advertising budget to help spread their name, so each vote really counts.

Voting in the contest is open to the general public, and people are allowed to vote up to 3 times per day. The voting started yesterday, and it is open until February 28, 2016. Visitors are encouraged to watch a video about each company and “Heart the business with the best not-com name.” Each heart counts as a vote, and the brand with the most votes at the end of the month will receive the prize.
