Name.com was ranked the 2nd most popular domain registrar in a 2012 LifeHacker poll. Although the company's size and recognition isn't quite on the same level as larger registrars like GoDaddy, Name.com remains a popular favorite among many domain buyers. The self-proclaimed "Little Registrar That Could" reported having 1 million domains under management in 2010. Name.com was acquired in 2013 by Demand Media, the same company that owns eNom, another Top 10 Registrar. Like most other registrars today, Name.com offers a range of other services in addition to domain registration, including hosting, SSL certificates and website building tools.
Although Name.com was bought out in 2013, the company continues to operate as its own entity and positions itself as somewhat of an industry underdog. Name.com also supports numerous charitable causes and philanthropic efforts, winning points among its loyal fan base. Its domain pricing is highly competitive and the company's pricing list includes more than 300 domain extensions, including many new gTLDs available. The registrar also releases monthly promo codes and other specials that help reduce its pricing even further. However, live phone support is limited to business hours, Monday through Friday.
