NEW YORK, NY, September 12, 2007 - Register.com, a leading provider of web services and domain registration for small businesses, today announced the launch of its expanded domain name searching capabilities. This expanded search makes it easier for customers to find and purchase the website name they need to build a powerful online brand.
Through key partnerships with some of the industry's leading domain resellers, Register.com has expanded their domain universe by over 1.5 million previously registered domain names, which are now available for resale.
Register.com's enhanced searching capability enables customers to enter any website address they wish to purchase and instantly receive a comprehensive listing of both new and previously registered domain name options. Register.com customers can easily view all options and prices on one screen and, with the click of a mouse, can secure registration of some of the best website names on the market.
To support its expanded search capability, Register.com has formed a strategic partnership with NameMedia. NameMedia's Domain Listing Service (AfternicDLS) offers domain buyers access to the largest inventory of available premium names. Under the terms of the agreement, Register.com customers will have access to more than 750,000 premium domains from NameMedia.
"Register.com is a leading provider of online services to businesses worldwide. This partnership will give Register.com's customer base new ways to find the right digital identity," said Peter Lamson, senior vice president and general manager of NameMedia's domain name marketplace.
NameMedia's AfternicDLS service was recently recognized as "Outstanding Domain Marketplace" by Name Intelligence, and recently recognized for industry leading market share by the Domain Name Journal.
