This is pretty cool. Verisign is giving away $100,000 in cash prizes in the next three months for contestants that:
* Register the most descriptive, memorable and original .COM domain name(s)
* Submit your newly registered .COM name(s) HERE with a description of why it’s so awesome
* Promote the new domain on your social networks
A panel of judges and the public’s votes will determine the five best domain names registered each month during the contest period. Each monthly winner will receive $5,000 and the opportunity to submit a video explaining the beauty of their entry. Those who submit will proceed to the final round for a chance to win the Grand Prize amount – $30,000!
I found out about this from Michael Berkens post on TheDomains.com, where he also announced he will be one of the judges. This is a nice contest and way for Verisign to create a buzz about .COM in the midst of so much new GTLD activity.
