@zackshapiro Hi! We launched because we think it should be free/easy for students to build an online presence. Launching a personal site and showcasing your projects is so much more powerful than a paper resume / LinkedIn alone. Having an email on a personal domain also looks much more baller than rocking a gmail! :) We started touring campuses last year and hitting up college hackathons, which inspired this project!

@teddy Great initiative you guys. How long do you think this will be available? Going to add this to the @youngandceo resources page right now.

@teddy I'm in middle school, but I just registered a domain for myself, Thanks so much for this :)

@lachlanjc Awesome! Keep up the hustle!

Also, you may have noticed that there is a leaderboard on the page: The winning school at the end of the academic year will "take over" Namecheap's front page. We'll also crowdfund a scholarship for the top 3 schools!
