Name.com is a domain name registrar, web hosting company and a Seattle Startup Week sponsor. To get to know them a little better, we asked them a few questions.
What makes you excited about Seattle Startup Week?
We are excited to support Seattle Startup Week because we love the whole Startup Week movement. We’ve supported Boulder and Portland this year too, but see a particular energy in Seattle’s startup scene that’s infectious; and we want to be a part of it.
What are you hoping to get out of the week of events?
We are hoping to spread the word that new alternatives to .com domains are now available. Domain name extensions like .ninja, .social, .news, and 1,300 others are becoming available. We love these names because they inspire people to come up with new ideas and discover new possibilities on the Internet.
What do you love about being part of the Seattle startup culture?
Our favorite part of the Seattle startup scene is the drive that people have. There’s a unique sense of “anything is possible” in the Seattle area.
If Name.com was a food, what would it be and why?
We would probably be lasagne. That’s because we are simple on the outside, but super complex on the inside.
