Started in 2001, the .NAME generic domain extension is the sole TLD planned for personal sites only. These domain names can include personal or fictional names, nicknames and/or other labels people are popular by. Initially, only 3rd-level registrations were permitted, so if you planned to buy john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was loosened and second-level registrations were also permitted. Already registered 3rd-level domain names remained working.
Through our firm, you can buy your .NAME domain for a time interval between one and ten years. You will be able to alter the WHOIS contact details, to park your domain, to create Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an already purchased domain to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from the current domain registrar and we will renew it when the transfer has been finalized. There are no specific requirements on who can register a dot NAME domain name, but in order to keep the concept behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry organization may verify who the owner is and if there is no link between the owner and the actual domain, the registration may be challenged.
The .NAME top-level domain is one of the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no additional cost. In this way, your .NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the accurate spelling in your native language.
.NAME Domain Name Management with SimpleHosting
If you are looking for a new home for your .NAME domain names, the Domain Manager interface that we supply would be an excellent choice. Being both easy-to-work-with and fully featured, it enables you to exert full control over all domain name administration duties. It is possible to edit all essential DNS settings with a mouse-click and edit the WHOIS info related to all of your domain names with ease. If you have more than one domain names, controlling them from the very same location isn't just possible, it's in fact quite simple.
Also, for those who have a hosting account with us, then you are already aware of the fact that, aside from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a site management section too. Thus, you can quickly move between the two, without the need to work with several Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
