Why Choose a .name Domain Name ?

.name

Global domains such as .name are one of the most recognisable and commonplace domains that are seen around the Internet. Here at Nominate we wish to highlight the advantages of acquiring an instantly identifiable international .name domain, which are equally suitable for both personal and professional use.

Making the Right Choice

With the hundreds of extensions and combinations made available from the advent of international domains .name domains reinforces your presence on the world-wide web, but it doesn't stop there. When you have the perfect name in mind, it isn't easy to change, but with our availability checker you'll be able to make a thorough search for that ideal and elusive domain name.

Creating a Global Customer Base

Registering a Global domain will assist you to create an international customer base. The way in which it does this is by using a TLD that people will readily trust. If an individual sees a Global domain such as .name, they would be more likely to trust the company (or professional individual) than if it was some unknown ccTLD. Also, it will not affect page rankings across country specific search engines. For example, google.fr will favour .fr domains to other ccTLD extensions, but .name will not be similarly prejudiced.
