As reported earlier, domain registrar is holding a holiday trivia contest on where they are giving away over $17,000 worth of domain names from December 1 through December 25th.  Contestants are also vying for an Ipod to be given to the person with the most amout of correct answers.  Check out the winners page here to see who has the most right answers.

Just one week in to the promotion and NameCheap customers are racking up loads of free domain names.  NameCheap now has over 2,900 followers/participants in this contest.  A few days in to the contest they modified the rules in selecting the hourly winners :  1st to respond still wins and 2 random winners are selected from top entries to accommodate for Twitter distribution issues.

It seems fairly easy to win a domain name now and then if you play just a little. I’ve been jumping on Twitter from time to time to join in on the fun and I’ve already won twice.  Another friend of mine has won at least 3 times. This is a fun and easy way to win a prize that is actually something most of our readers will use.  Sign-up and follow NameCheap on Twitter and win a few domains. While you are at it maybe you want to follow my personal Twitter account or DomainNameNews.
