I just learned that Name.com introduced its Android app today, and it is now one of the only ICANN accredited registrars to produce one. This new app allows people to search for available domain names, register domain names, manage website DNS, and perhaps the most unique aspect is that its the first mobile domain backorder platform.
According to Name.com CEO Bill Mushkin, “We chose to develop an Android app first because it really spoke to the core of our open source roots and the fact that we have a large international customer base. With the Android operating system’s rapid global growth, we can now reach customers whose primary access to the Internet is not their computer, but their mobile phone, and provide them with all the tools they need.”
Owen Borseth, Senior Software Engineer and lead developer on the app, added, “We wanted our app to offer more than just registration and domain management features. Our domain name backorder service, Domain Nabber, is one of our most popular services, so it was a great addition.”
