.CO Internet @dotco.

 So you’re at a Startup Weekend and you’ve got yourself a hot idea and an amazing team that’s ready to roll. Now, if you could just find the perfect name for your startup…

It may sound simple, but the reality is that finding a great name is notoriously hard to do – especially when you’re in a huge time crunch and your budget is, let’s just say, less than modest.

When you and your Startup Weekend team only have 54 hours to develop and launch your new business, you need to find the best possible name, and the associated domain name, quickly and easily, so you can get down to business fast!

Lucky for you, there’s a brand new tool created just for Startup Weekend that will make the naming process a snap!  When the time comes for you and your team to name your company, the place to start is NameYour.co.  Powered by the incredible DomainsBot technology, NameYour.co will take multiple keywords or terms that you are considering and suggest a host of available web addresses with various different prefixes, suffixes and adjectives – and in various domain extensions (although we all know that .CO is the best domain for startups… and not just because you get one free as a Startup Weekend participant!).  It will even search to see if the corresponding Twitter handle and unique Facebook URL are available for the web addresses it suggests.

Every big idea deserves to come to life on a great domain name.  Even if you’re not participating in a Startup Weekend, if you’ve got a big idea, go to NameYour.co – and give it a whirl!  If you like it, please share it with your friends and followers too – they’ll thank you. I promise!
