Get paid for participating in Name Contests

Post name ideas to Public Contests and earn Talent Points. For every 1000 Points, we'll transfer $100 to the Paypal account specified in your Profile.

How do I earn more Points?

You must have good English language skills to understand the Contest requirements. Finding suitable name candidates may be take a while, but it gets much easier when you learn to take full advantage of our domain name generators and use the Pro features, which you'll get for free for recommending good names.

Read our guidelines about earning more Talent Points in our blog.

How much can I expect to earn?

Our top contestants make over $300/month by working just a few hours each day.

What do I get for my Talent Points?

  • 1000 Points: $100 transferred to your Paypal account in 5 business days
  • Every 1000 Points from thereon: $100 cash prize
  • Win a Contest: Free NameStation Pro month

How are Talent Points awarded?

  • +100 Points: Name is accepted as winner
  • +10 Points: Name is voted up by contest holder. Up to 200 points are given in each contest for voting.
  • -1 Point: Name is voted down by contest holder. The negative Point is removed when you withdraw your entry.

300 Points are reserved for each Public Contest: 200 for upvotes and 100 for the winner. Only 20 first upvoted entries receive Points.

My names have been upvoted, why didn't I receive Points?

In each contest, 200 Points are allocated for the voting and 100 for the winner. This means that about 20 first upvoted names get 10 points each. The ones that were upvoted afterwards receive no points, otherwise it would break the contest budget.

Subscribe to Contest Alerts to get notifications when new contests are published.

The Contest Holder may invite other people to vote, but only votes cast by the Contest Holder affect Points.

Each Contest has the Points tab that details the distribution of Points for that Contest.

About Talent Points

Talent Points are displayed on your public profile. Over time we'll continue to add incentives to earn more points. Votes you cast for your own name ideas or contests are not counted. Gaming the system or using fake accounts to artificially raise the score will result in banning all involved accounts.

Talent Points are completely optional. Normal use of NameStation does not require any Points whatsoever.
