3 New Letters. Same Great Experience!
On Friday, September 1, 2017, we’re moving houseparty.com to houseparty.fun!
And we want to make sure you make the move with us without any snags. Since only three letters in our web address will be changing, we think it's a move that will be easy to make and won't even require you to put your shoes on or carry any boxes! (We promise!)
In fact, if you head over to http://www.houseparty.com, you'll note that we're already redirecting you to the new URL. So, simply bookmark http://www.houseparty.fun now! Once houseparty.fun is bookmarked, you won’t have to worry about it again – everything you’re used to seeing will be there waiting for you.
On Friday, September 1, 2017, the move to www.houseparty.fun will be complete though and you'll only be able to access House Party via that new ".fun" URL.
Why the change to www.houseparty.fun?
Well, great question! We pride ourselves on creating fun, engaging opportunities with the brands and products you love. And we've been working very hard on some exciting updates that will dramatically improve your House Party experience and the overall fun that you have as a member.
