DOMAIN NAMING CONTESTS INCLUDE:

All Design and Naming Contests come with our Money Back Guarantee. 


GOT QUESTIONS? WE'VE GOT ANSWERS!

We have pricing for all budgets, higher priced packages come with a larger prize for the winning designer, which typically results in higher participation by more skilled creatives. View the pricing for all types of contests here.

Contests run for ten days, during which time you will receive entries and can request revisions. If you need work done more quickly our rush upgrade gets you results in 48 hours and usually results in more entries than a comparable 10 day contest. You can always extend your contest once it ends if you want to see more entries or want to request changes to an existing entry.​

While you can request the creatives submitting entries to your domain name contest to check to see if the domain is available, ultimately is your responsibly to ensure that your new domain name is not already in use. 

Feedback is highly encouraged, as it helps to direct the Hatchwise creatives with what you are looking for with the domain name submissions. 

You can leave feedback by either leaving a comment, or rating on the individual entries. You can also leave comments on the General Discussion Board for all the creatives entering your domain name contest. 

If you wish to send a Private Message to any of the creatives entering your naming contest you can do so from the contest submissions (on the entry detail) or from your account. 

In order to hold a successful domain naming contest we recommend carefully filling the contest brief with any details that you can provide (your company branding, logo, slogan, services and/or products offered). If you don’t have any of that that’s fine too! 

We also encourage you to leave lots of feedback for the creatives entering the contest in order to provide them direction in what you are looking for with the submissions. 

We do not limit the number of domain name entries that you have submitted to your contest. While each package does come with a guaranteed number of submissions, you can expect to see many more than that. 

“Wow- you delivered even more than I expected. Great service and experience!”

All About Domain Naming Contests

Tired of finding out all the creative domain names you want for your business are already licensed? It’s getting harder and harder to find domain names that are well thought-out, efficient, fitting, creative, AND unregistered. But a company without a memorable domain name is doomed to roam the outer edges of the internet forever. It can be almost impossible to cut through the noise of the products, companies, and services that are competing for customer attention on the world wide web. But if you want to have a fighting chance at getting your company some visibility, you need, first and foremost, a creative domain name. Something that will stick in people’s heads when they read it in online or on a subway ad. Getting people to your website is half the battle, and once you choose your domain name, you can’t go back, so you’ll want to make sure it’s the best one money can buy.

That’s where Hatchwise comes in. We source dozens of creatives from all backgrounds and ask them to brainstorm a custom domain name for your business that fits all of your creative criteria. It’s really quite simple: you fill out a short creative brief describing your company and what you want your name to encapsulate, and then you choose from three different levels of pricing available—bronze, silver, and gold. The succeeding increase in price for each package means more entries and more prize money for the winning creative, who will give you the rights to their creative material upon being selected, minus any commission collected by Hatchwise. There are also custom pricing packages available.

Hatchwise uses crowdsourced creativity to deliver the best possible results to you, our clients. For a reasonable fee, you get to sit back, relax, and watch dozens of creatives come up with clever and fitting names for your domain, and your hardest job is going through all of the excellent choices to find the best one! The perfect domain name for your business is out there waiting to be created. Let us help you capture the creativity that will result in a memorable and fitting name for your enterprise.

WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER

We’re passionate about every single creative project on Hatchwise being the best it can possibly be. If you need help or have questions we’re here for you! Our support team is responsive, helpful, and has all the answers.

“Wow- you delivered even more than I expected. Great service and experience!”
