Apple has been a pioneer in the technology industry for years, paving the way for innovation in electronics and software. So it comes as no surprise that Apple is at the forefront of a new type of technology that is changing the face of the internet: New Domains.
Why you need privacy protection for your domain names
If you’re new to websites, you may be unfamiliar with some of the additional services that registrars offer when you purchase a domain. One service that can be especially confusing is domain privacy protection. What is it? And is it really necessary?
Branded navigation: How New Domains make it easier to share your best content
An online presence is a requirement for modern day businesses that want to prosper. But for most companies, that means more than just a website: it involves YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, a careers page, and more. And across each of these platforms or web pages, a strong, recognizable brand image must be present.
A lot of scary words get tossed around when you start creating your first website: SSL certificates, VAT IDs, name servers. And then there are DNS records: Those mysterious things that you know are super important but you just can’t wrap your head around what they are—much less manage them. And worst of all, some companies (we won’t name names!) charge you for it every month.
But you don’t have to be an internet guru to have and manage your own website. Getting online should be easy. That’s why Name.com has free DNS tools that can make all those scary, confusing internet things a little less frightening.
Maybe you got that dreaded email. Maybe you noticed it in your account portal. But the truth remains: One of your domains is expiring. What’s a website owner to do?
Renewing your domain before it expires is always a good idea—that way, you don’t have to deal with interrupted web service or risk losing your domain name to another person. Because most domains can only be registered for up to 10 years (and for some, even less), you will periodically need to renew your domains to continue ownership of them. The domain expiration process will vary based on your domain intentions and how proactive you are with renewing them.

YouTube, you lose? The surprising video platform that gets the most views
At Name.com, we make a lot of videos.
We rely on them to sell products, share information, and bring joy. But we also relied too much on YouTube as our sole source of video exposure. It’s an easy trap to get caught in: YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, and the two of them together are search engine beasts. Google is the #1 online search engine and YouTube is #2.
The one thing these internet giants lack is engagement—or at least the engagement you want. YouTube comments can be the internet’s bathroom stall of conversation.

The internet has brought about a new era of technology, creating dramatic changes in the way we share and receive information. Now, anyone with a smartphone can become a blogger or journalist, sharing information with people around the world. But with all the noise this larger community creates, bloggers and traditional news sources are fighting an uphill battle to be heard.
