Name.com has been around since 2003 and is located in Denver, Colorado.
Name.com offers domain registration, hosting, email hosting, and aftermarket domain services.
Although we were unable to get a close number, the TLDs that name.com offers seems to be in the same ballpark as the other registrars we reviewed.
Name.com does indeed offer a pre-order feature so you can be the first to grab that custom descriptive domain name.
Name.com offers Whois privacy services. Like most others, they have elected to make it a paid service at $3.99 per year per domain.
Name.com was only the cheapest on one of the five domains we test registered. However, they were solidly in the middle for the rest as far as normal pricing. They did have some ‘first-year’ discounts for two of the domains which made them the cheapest, so it is worth checking for sales.
