Name.com Nature Film: In the Developer's Den


I think this is but the raw beginning of more nature films. We have plenty of animals to pursue around the office, and this swanky Cherry Creek neighborhood just begs to be exploited. I’m seeing a Whole Foods nature film and even a Nordstrom’s safari. There are cougars all over in there.

We tagged a couple of them to track their movements, but they haven’t gone anywhere in weeks.

PageZen Top 5 Tips and Tricks


Like we’ve said before, PageZen is easy, and we don’t say that in the condescending oh-we-know-you-can-do-it way that someone says right when they give you a ton of work. We’re saying it in the old school “it’s easy” way. Back when “bad” meant “bad” instead of “awesome” and “sick” was still ill. PageZen is easy. Here’s how you take your PageZen website to the next level.

What we should learn from the Crock Pot Girls


Let me be the first to try and share the success of an Internet Sensation. This time it’s not a kid high on nitrous oxide or an interesting squirrel. This time there’s meat, real honest-to-gosh meat. It’s the Crock Pot Girls. They are three mothers, Allyson, Jenna, and Nicole who, as their Facebook page says, “decided here was a great way us moms can exchange crock pot recipes.” Sounds pretty darn simple, and that should be the main lesson. KISS: Keep It Simple…Silly (Moms loathe the word “stupid.”)

So they go about this straightforward project and in less than ten days score half a million “likes” and so many wall posts they have to beg people to behave and follow the rules. What are the rules? Well, simple: share recipes. Now that’s about as Abigail Adams as you can get...

Name.com Introduces Domain Nabber NXD Scores for .Net, .CC and .TV


The NXD score that Name.com currently provides for .COM is now available for .NET, .CC and .TV.

NXD, or Non-existing Domains, are those domains just about to expire or are currently available to be registered.

The NXD score measures DNS traffic, which could be an indicator of web traffic. There are a lot, like millions, of domains that are already getting DNS traffic, but that no one is using. Information provided by Verisign helps to determine their NXD score, rated on a 1-to-10 scale, 10 being the highest.

Get onto Name.com’s Domain Nabber today, and use the NXD score to find the right domains to potentially drive even more traffic to your site, products, services and content.

Changes Coming to Domain Nabber Refunds


Yes, we have been listening! Our Domain Nabber customers have been giving us loads of great feedback over the past few months and one item that came up a number of times was how refunds are processed.

Previously, if you backordered a domain and either did not get the name or chose to cancel the backorder, you were refunded to your original payment method. Often times this is a credit card, and if you are placing multiple backorders with this card, this means a lot of charging and refunding — possibly causing issues with your bank or credit card provider.

Starting on November 15, 2010, refunds will be processed a little differently. Effective on this date, Domain Nabber refunds by default will be processed to account credit, which can then be used to purchase another backorder or any of the...

Domain Nabber Now Supports .MOBI!


We’re excited to announce that .MOBI is now one of the extensions we support with our Domain Nabber backorder service! This is just part of our continued efforts to help you get the domain names that you want.

There are a couple of different ways you can take advantage of this new feature.

If you want to pick and choose your .MOBI domains from a list of expired names that have dropped, you can check out our Domain Nabber page where you can fill out the criteria that you want.

But if you have something specific in mind, you can just do a regular search for that name and place your backorder directly from our search page.

As you can see, backorders for .MOBI run $39.95 and, as always, if you don’t get the name or you decide to cancel your order, you will receive a full refund.
