Name.com Daily Tut: Forwarding your Domain to Sell Your Home


Domain (aka URL or web address) forwarding has got to be the easiest and least expensive way (it comes free with your domain) to market your home. Yesterday we forwarded a domain to someone’s LinkedIn profile to help them get a job. Today we’ll assist home sellers and real estate agents with the same idea. With Name.com, once you buy a domain, one of the many tools available to you is being able to forward it to the website of your choosing.

Remember, if you don’t find the .COM you want, see if you can get the .INFO, .NET, .CO or even .BIZ.

Name.com Daily Tut: How to use URL Forwarding to land a gig


Now this is pretty basic stuff, especially to you Domainers who have more web addresses than socks, but it’s an important reason why everyone should have at least one domain: using it to forward to your online resume. Instead of “Please, please go to Linkedin.com/mynameandsomerandomcharacters and consider me for the postion,” you can say, “I’m glad you hired me after seeing mysimpledomain.com.”

And thanks Chris for letting us use you and your info!

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.
