Creating and managing cloned or sub accounts on Name.com
As many of our customers know all too well, having just one account to manage all of the domains you’ve registered is not always enough. Maybe you’re a webmaster for several clients and you need to give them access to their websites while still maintaining some semblance of control. Or, you might have a hundreds domain names and want a better way to organize them. No matter what your issue may be, creating cloned or sub accounts through your Name.com account can seriously simplify your life.
How to get the domain name you want (even if it’s unavailable)
You’ve come up with a brilliant idea for a new product or website: You’ve already brainstormed a killer website name, wordsmithed a clever slogan, and even designed the graphics to go along with it … only to find out that the domain name you planned on registering is already taken.
Unfortunately, cases like these are not uncommon. Generic domains have a high level of occupancy, so many of the best names are already being used or are sold at Premium prices for thousands of dollars.
Despite all the doom and gloom, stories like these can have happy endings. Rather than having to make your selection from a limited pool of generic domains, you can now choose from hundreds of unique domain options that will define your brand and differentiate your online presence. By thinking outside the box, you can create a web address that is memorable and relevant to what you do.

We’ve got another Name.com hackathon under our belts! Last week we took a break from our typical workweek to focus on innovative projects of our choice over a three-day span. Employees in every department had the opportunity to collaborate on a project to make Name.com better.
The theme of this year’s hackathon was Back to Basics. Employees were challenged to look at our products, services, and processes with fresh eyes and come up with solutions and ideas for a better business. After throwing around some project ideas on Wednesday morning, the Name.com crew chose the top five ideas and spent the remainder of the week turning those concepts into a reality.
