UPDATE: Thanks to all who entered but this contest is now closed. Here’s a funny story that happened with one of our entrants to cheer you up!
In celebration of .COM’s big 30th birthday, Verisign (the registry responsible for .COM), is giving away $35,000. And you could totally win it.
Here’s how it works:
To enter the contest, all you have to do is register a really great new .COM domain name and submit the entry form below. The .COM domain you choose should be all the things that make for a “great” domain name – original, memorable, and keyword-rich (but, we don’t have to tell you that).
Each month until March 31st, 2015, the five best domain names will be chosen by a panel of judges and the public’s vote. The five monthly winners will get a cool $5,000, plus the opportunity to submit a video explaining why their .COM domain is truly the best for the chance to win the grand prize of $30,000!
So far, Verisign has announced a pretty stellar list of celebrity judges and top industry influencers, including naming expert, Steve Manning, the “Queen of QVC,” Lori Greiner, and The Apprentice entrepreneur, Bill Rancic. You can also get a hand from the public vote by sharing your entry on your social networks.
The Fine Print:
The Verisign #InternetOfficial Contest is open to U.S. residents only, 18 years or older.
