How we created dark mode on Name.com
Name.com got a whole new look and feel a few months ago when we launched our new brand. But it wasn’t just a new coat of paint that made the site look different. The front-end team leveraged the launch of the new Name.com brand as an opportunity to do a full rebuild and architect the entire site from the ground up with fresh new templates, CSS, and clean semantic HTML. There were several things we needed to clean-up, some new tech we wanted to use, and there was another reason too:
Simplicity above all: Exploring Name.com’s new brand
You may have noticed things are looking a little different around here.
We’re extremely proud and excited to unveil a fresh new look at Name.com. While it’s been fun to see this new design take shape, it has also served as a meaningful exercise to carefully consider who we want to be as a business and what role we want to play in the lives of our customers.
The best domain tools in the industry? Yeah, we think so too.
2013 was a good year. Twitter held their IPO, Apple debuted the new iPhone 5S,
the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl (The Editor disagrees that this is a good thing), Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, and Name.com launched the brand new Domain Management tools. Six years ago these domain tools were cutting edge—and for the most part, they have stood the test of time.
But we knew we could do better.

A simple guide to web accessibility

Did you know that people with disabilities are still capable of browsing the internet?
(No, not those tabs, these tabs)
For the past couple of years there’s been a persistent bug on Name.com. It wasn’t a big bad bug that caused the website to break or put any users at risk. It was more of a small annoying UI bug that certainly caused frowny faces, sad pandas, and feelings of frustration for our users.
Over the past few months our team has been hard at work behind the scenes to completely rebuild Name.com one page at a time. Why? We want to give our customers the best user experience when searching for, buying, and managing domains … especially on mobile devices.
