How to Transfer your Domains from GoDaddy to Name.com


Maybe, just maybe, you’re creeped out by Jean-Claude Van Damme. And maybe you’re not so quick to forgive gross Super Bowl commercials and elephant deaths. Maybe you want to transfer your domain to name.com. If that’s the case, here’s a step-by-step guide.

*Transferring a domain is pretty simple, but there’s a lot of back-and-forth between your GoDaddy account, your name.com account, and your email account. It’s a lot easier to explain in a video than in a screenshot tutorial, so you might want to watch our video tutorial first.

**Read this post for information on how to transfer your domain without disrupting your website or email service.

Name.com Daily Tut: Installing and Using Apple iTunes Match


It used to be difficult to pick which person at Name.com was the biggest Apple Fanboy/girl. Then along came Michael and, it’s clear, none of us can compete. He has every gadget and he knows everything about every gadget. That’s a big step, going from wannabe Fanboy/girl to the real deal Fanboy/girl, as many people use only about five percent of their Apple product’s potential. Michael uses it until he’s in sync, as if he embodies its technology. It’s weird, especially when he needs something and uses your face as a touchscreen. But we get many uses from Michael (I’ve heard his computer say his name like that car in Knight Rider) including incredible web design and these useful Apple tutorials.

As you can see it works!

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.

Poetry, Pants and a New Position


Hello. My name is Jared. I work on the second floor. And I just tore a hole in the crotch of my pants. I know that’s a lot of details for an introduction, but I think it’s important to relate. That’s what I’ll be doing as the new Community Evangelist for Name.com: Relating. You know how it is the first day on the job. It’s never easy. It’s nervousness and awkwardness frosted with doubt and self awareness. You feel small in stature but large in disaster.

I’m also one to make it worse with errant attempts at humor. I mean, just after you meet someone it’s best to fly low and keep it simple. I try. However, out of my need to fit in, I shared with a new co-worker that I just tore a hole in my pants...
