(No, not those tabs, these tabs)

For the past couple of years there’s been a persistent bug on Name.com. It wasn’t a big bad bug that caused the website to break or put any users at risk. It was more of a small annoying UI bug that certainly caused frowny faces, sad pandas, and feelings of frustration for our users.

But today, we are here to fulfill that promise. Today … we introduce Name.com’s website builder.

Name.com and CloudLinux Partner to Improve Server Quality


namelinux

Innovative shared hosting operating system (OS) developer CloudLinux and leading domain name registrar Name.com announced today the details of their growing partnership. Name.com is now using the CloudLinux OS, a switch that has had an immediate impact on load times, stability, and the overall customer experience of Name.com’s shared hosting services. The relationship began when Name.com identified potential issues with its existing environment.

“We take pride in our growing relationship with Name.com because the company is a lot like CloudLinux,” says Igor Seletskiy, Founder and CEO at CloudLinux. “Name.com is renowned for its customer support, giving webmasters the assistance they need to get the most from their hosting. However, when problems occur with an OS, maintaining support and service quality is difficult. At CloudLinux, we are very committed to our customers, and, in this case, we used our own excellent customer support team to help Name.com eliminate its issues.”

The story of Name.com + Scroll Kit.


This is Pat, a.k.a “Fro” one of our ninja developers. He peruses the Interwebs like a BOSS, catching every viral video and trend weeks before hitting the masses. One day his online adventures lead him to a hackernews article about Scrollkit.com. Immediately intrigued about the product created by the dynamic designer + coder duo, he started playing around. Naturally wanting to be a part of something so hot, he kicked an email out to share with the team. It didn’t take long for the positive feedback to roll in. Bill (CEO, founder, Chief) caught word and reached out to former Denverite, and Founder of ScrollKit.com, Cody Brown. The meeting of the minds went well and here we are a week or two later, offering Scroll Kit to you!

It’s majorly badass so jump in and get your hands dirty...
