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:

DARK MODE.

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.

An easier sign up process leads to more sign ups, who knew?

You know how you occasionally go to a website and they get as clingy as a bad Tinder match who won’t stop texting you after you’ve given them your number?  Yeah, we hate that too.

But here at Name.com we think getting all up in your business before we’ve even gotten to know each other is way worse, which is why we made it easier than ever to create a new account.  With no phone numbers or addresses required, all we ask is for your email, a username, a password, and voila—you’re now a certified all-natural organic grass-fed Name.com user.
