NEW YORK, NY, September 12, 2007 - Register.com, a leading provider of web services and domain registration for small businesses, today announced it has expanded its domain name search capabilities to include over 1.5 million premium domains. Through this expansion, Register.com gives small business customers access to both new domains and names that are currently registered but are available for resale.
One of Register.com's key partners in building this expanded search capability is the Domain Distribution Network (Fabulous.com). Leveraging Fabulous.com's expertise and extensive inventory of previously registered domains, Register.com has expanded its ability to help customers create memorable online brands that are easy to market and remember.
Almost 90 million .com, .net and .org domains, representing highly sought-after combinations of English words, are already registered. In many cases the domain holders no longer use them and are interested in reselling the name. With this in mind, Fabulous.com has created a service to offer the broader market access to quality domains that are already taken. Through this partnership, Register.com customers will now have the ability 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 reserve some of the best new or previously registered website names on the market.
"By increasing the number of existing domains available to our customers we are helping small businesses build their brand online," said Larry Kutscher, chief executive officer, Register.com. "Register.com now provides a one-stop-shop for new or previously registered domains, making it easy to find and purchase the best web address for their business."
"Register.com is a valuable partner for The Domain Distribution Network. They are an immensely professional organization that truly seeks to add value to their customers," said Dan Warner, chief strategy officer, Fabulous.com. "Their new service will provide a great benefit for small business owners, allowing them to purchase superior domain names which were previously off the market.”
