Your Fur Is Nice And Blue

Some may recall my post about Monster Hosting changing their name to BlueFur.com because of some big US company threatening trademark infringement. Well the name change is almost done and BlueFur would love to hear what everyone thinks of their new domain name.

Inspired by my review for linkback idea, they’ve decided to offer a “Review Our New Name & Get A Free Domain” contest. The rules are pretty simple.

The rules are simple, review our new domain BlueFur.com and you will get a free .com, .net or .org to use how you wish. The review must be at least 300 words long and it must include a link to the bluefur.com home page and this post. We ask that you are honest with your review and state what you like and do not like. This offer is only open to the first 50 people.

This sounds like a pretty easy way to get a free domain name. Mind you, it’s just for a domain name, you’ll still have to pay for hosting. However, with plans starting at $4.95 per month, it’s pretty cheap. And if you enter JohnChowRocks in the promo code, you’ll get 15% off. Since I’m already writing, I guess I’ll take a shot at reviewing BlueFur.

bluefur.jpgBlueFur.com gets its domain name from its logo – a nice blue guy with blue fur. As you can see from the logo, it’s pretty blue and has a lot of fur. Even the BlueFur.com letters are a furry blue. However, I’m not too sure about the “Experience The Legend” line. Maybe they should try something like “Feeling Blue? Try Our Fur.” That would keep with the whole BlueFur thing. 🙂

OK, that was a pretty bad review! I’m sure you guys can do much better! If you’re thinking of starting a new site or blog, here’s your chance to get the domain name for free! Get on it quick however. After 50 reviews, the contest is over.

I have recommended quite a few friends to BlueFur and so far their experiences have been all positive. Ed Lau is a BlueFur customer and he was very impressed that his $4.95 per month hosting package was able to stand up to a front page Digg. Not many shared hosting plans can do that.
