New gift card lets retail shoppers pick up a domain name on impulse.
You can register domain names through web sites, twitter, and text message. So why not buy one with your latte?
A new gift card from Canadian domain name registrar WebNames.ca lets customers buy a voucher for a .tel domain name at the cash registrer and then redeem it online. The card is apparently being offered (or soon will be) at CanTalk Wireless and Blenz Coffee in Canada.
A number of domain name registrars, including heavyweight Go Daddy, offer online gift cards. But I’ve yet to see domain name gift certificates offered in retail stores, at least not in the U.S. If you’ve seen something like this elsewhere, please post a comment.
By the way, it’s too late to register DomainNameGiftCertificates.com.
