An easier sign up process leads to more sign ups, who knew?

You know how you occasionally go to a website and they get as clingy as a bad Tinder match who won’t stop texting you after you’ve given them your number?  Yeah, we hate that too.

But here at Name.com we think getting all up in your business before we’ve even gotten to know each other is way worse, which is why we made it easier than ever to create a new account.  With no phone numbers or addresses required, all we ask is for your email, a username, a password, and voila—you’re now a certified all-natural organic grass-fed Name.com user.

Everything you need to know about domain backorders

You have the perfect idea for a domain name. But when you gleefully head to Name.com and type it into the search bar, something terrible happens—you find out that someone has already registered your dream domain name, leaving it sadly out of your grasp.

Life is cruel.

But don’t lose hope! Just as new domains are registered every day, existing domains sometimes expire without being renewed by the original owner—leaving it free for you to snatch up the moment it hits the market once more. Name.com’s backorder process allows you to place a tentative hold on a domain name that is close to expiration and increase your chances of securing it if it is not renewed by the current owner.

Find your personal brand with Name.com’s web identity search

Who are you as a person?

Now we don’t want to start any existential crises or anything, but that question is sometimes not so easily answered. So when you go to register yourname.com only to find it’s already taken, it can seem like the proverbial end of your internet world.

But it’s ok, take a breather. With so many New Domains coming out each week, there are more options than ever before to get a domain extension that is relevant to you, your interests, or your expertise. There are so many options, in fact, that there may be a New Domain out there that is perfect for you—you just don’t know it yet.

We updated our bulk search—and it’s awesome

If you’ve ever used a bulk search while looking for New Domains, we’re very sorry. Bulk search pages tend to be ugly, confusing, and difficult to navigate. They make you feel like doing this.

But we’re excited to say that we’ve spent some time reworking our own bulk search to make it more usable, understandable, and better looking. With its new features and capabilities, you can easily bulk search to your heart’s content (and spare your computer from the anger management issues).
