(The Hosting News) – Domain.com, a global leader in domain registration and web hosting solutions, today announces the Domain.com “Next Great Idea” challenge launching at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York City. TechCrunch Disrupt NYC, which kicks off this weekend with a 24-hour Hackathon, has solidified itself as the tech industry’s hottest event for launching new cutting edge startups.
TechCrunch Disrupt product sponsor Domain.com challenges event attendees to take their next great idea and name it, build it, and host it at Domain.com. Event attendees should stop by the Startup 411 section to learn how Domain.com’s name generation and powerful website tools make it simple to create their website and execute their vision.
Also celebrating the launches of companies participating in the Disrupt Battlefield startup competition, Domain.com will be giving away free and discounted domain names, fresh Domain.com t-shirts for weary coders, and pounds of candy for sustenance.
“People think there are only a few choices when it comes to domain names and web hosting. The fact is Domain.com has been around since 2000, and we’re one of the largest domain and web hosting companies in the world,” said David Andrews, Marketing Director for Domain.com. “We don’t act like a big company though. Contact us on Twitter @domaindotcom and you’ll see how we love helping people launch their great ideas.”
This weekend’s Hackathon is followed by the three day TechCrunch Disrupt event which pins the world’s best new startups against each other for the opportunity to win the Disrupt Cup and a $50,000 prize. Tech luminaries including rapper turned investor MC Hammer will select the winner.
For those who won’t be in New York to visit TechCrunch firsthand, it’s still possible to participate. On Twitter, tell @domaindotcom using hashtag #TCDisrupt why you deserve a TechCrunch shout-out. Tweets will show up on Domain.com’s custom Twitter decoder bracelet, and every hour during the event, Domain.com will randomly select a winner and feature their tweet.
To get a head start on launching a new business or creating a website for an existing one, visit Domain.com to name, build, and host your next great idea.
