Keep your mitts up: How to protect against unauthorized domain transfers

This post is meant to give you recommendations on how to prevent a potential domain hijack before it happens, because once a domain transfers to another registrar it can be difficult to re-acquire, especially if the transfer was in compliance with ICANN policy.

Getting the most out of freelancing, your business and name.com | The Web Address New Years Re$olutions

In what could be the most comprehensive Web Address ever, we talk to three people about getting the most out of 2015. You have new goals and resolutions, and we think you’ll find information to help you with any endeavor you choose. We bring in Jon Liu, our intrepid icon of our user interface, to explain how you can get more out of Name.com. With our new, more responsive site you can buy and manage your domains wherever you go. And then there’s URL Forwarding. It’s the easiest way to get the most out of your web properties.

We’ve updated URL forwarding, and it rocks!

URL forwarding is an incredible tool. You can use it to easily shorten cumbersome URLs for your existing sites. Why send someone to mysite12345.tumblr.com when they could go to yourname.rocks instead? Another great use is to brand your social media channels. While speaking at an event recently, I set up angeladaniels.ninja to forward to my LinkedIn profile. This was so much easier to put into my presentation than the full LinkedIn URL or a username that is easily forgettable. With URL forwarding, it was easy to connect with new professional contacts using a memorable domain name that made me stand out from the crowd.
