.CO Buzz


.CO LogoThere seems to be a lot of buzz around the new .CO extension. The new TLD (Top Level Domain) is marketing itself as the new domain extension for companies, corporations and commerce-based websites. The intro video on the .CO website suggests that maybe, just maybe, we can make the Internet “new again”.

Name.com’s very own Community Manager, Lesley, joined the .CO crew at Web 2.0 in San Francisco this past week as we launched our .CO Sunrise, Landrush and Registration Pre-Order service. Lesley was helping to take pre-orders and from what we hear the .CO crew made her feel very welcome!

With a price of just $28 for a .CO pre-registration we’ve created some buzz of our own...

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...
