Headed to GeoDomain Expo!


Our bags are packed (okay maybe not yet) and we’re headed off to the big easy for three jazz-filled days of domains and networking! Geodomains are nothing new, but like anything “location-based” these days, they are starting to gain more mainstream popularity. If you’re a small business, this presents a great opportunity to geo-target your customers. If you’re a domainer, there is ample opportunity to build out and monetize a geodomain.

We’ll admit, we’ve been excited about geodomains for some time now. If you haven’t checked it out already, our Geodomain search tool is a pretty nifty project we’ve been working on. But shameless plugs aside, we’re really excited for the sessions and networking events that Associated Cities have lined up for this year’s GeoDomain Expo...

Private Whois Changes


Hi folks. Name.com always strives to offer the lowest price on all our products and up until today we’ve been able to offer Private Whois for free for a long time. These types of posts are never fun, and no one enjoys raising prices, but sometimes it becomes necessary so we can continue to offer these great services.

While some registrars charge as much as eight or nine dollars per domain for this service, our new promotional price, starting today, is only $1.99 per domain annually. This means we are still offering some of the best pricing for this service anywhere. We realize that changes like this can impact our customer’s plans and budgets, so we’ve taken some proactive steps that we feel will help to curb the impact of this new change. Those actions are:

  • All domains that currently hav...

Domain Nabber Grows Up and Leaves Beta


As of this morning, our Domain Nabber backorder service is officially out of beta! We’ve been working hard on our nabber for the past few months and we’re excited to say that it is now ready for prime time. Huge thanks to all of the customers that provided feedback during the beta period — you helped us make the service even better!

Nabbing .COM and .NET domains now costs $49.95 and, as always, there is no risk in placing a backorder. If we don’t nab the name for you we’ll give you a full refund or account credit, your choice!

Speaking of choices, we’ve recently added .INFO into the mix, making it a total of seven extensions that you can backorder through Domain Nabber...

April is all about ME..err..YOU!


This month we’re focusing on you. Name.com is offering .ME registrations for just $7.99 and renewals for just $14.99 with the code ALLABOUTU !

.ME is becoming a more popular TLD and we’ve started to notice it gaining some traction. In the social media space, two new services have popped up fairly recently that have embraced this extension to help make things a little more personal.

Flavors.me is a slick service that lets you put up a website easily and add all of your content from other services like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and many others. We dig it. Plus if you get their premium service you can use a custom domain name, and we always like to see that.

Formspring.me is a really clever way to interact and get to know people through random questions...

Save Money on Your Custom Posterous Domain With Name.com!


Here at Name.com we’re big fans of services like Posterous and Tumblr. They make blogging dead simple and help make people’s jump into the blogging world a much less intimidating one. Now Posterous has just announced a custom domain service that allows you to register a domain directly through their site, making it easy to customize your blog. The catch — you’re limited to COM/NET/ORG and these registrations cost you $24.99 for one year and $19.99 for two. Ouch.

If you were to do the very same thing through Name.com, it would be a fraction of the cost in exchange for a couple more clicks. You also have the option to use quite a few more extensions if you go this route, since the name you want might not necessarily be available in COM/NET/ORG...

SXSW in 30 seconds


SXSW-38

We were at SXSW Interactive last week and, yes, we’ll admit we’re still recovering. The festival has grown so much that it’s a little overwhelming to try and keep up, but we managed to find our fair share of great panels, parties, and people. Here’s a little video we threw together with the footage we got when we actually remembered to use our camera. :)
