According to a Tweet that was posted moments ago, NameJet has released the new website that the company had been beta testing for a couple of weeks.
If you’re a frequent NameJet user, you’ll immediately notice that the biggest change appears to be the new design, which lists more available domain names for sale on the home page.
The site functionality works in similar fashion to how it worked before. I was told that the search functionality is far superior to the previous version, and mobile browsing is also enhanced on the new site.
In it’s Tweet, NameJet asks clients to let the company know their thoughts on the new site, so feel free to post any comments here so the company can see them. I am sure it will be helpful if you post an errors you encounter.
If you aren’t a fan of the new site design, you can always revert back to the old site here: http://classic.namejet.com. I don’t know how much longer that option will be available though.
Some of those “hot picks” are dubious at best.

Must be paid submissions.
I definitely dislike the overall non-transparency of this company.
@ Ms Domainer
As far as I am aware, there are no “paid submissions.” I am not sure who selects the hot picks or what goes into selecting them though.
One thing I noticed that I don’t like is when I am in My Account area and click on the NJ logo to go back to the home page, it re-loads My Account page http://www.namejet.com/Pages/MyAccount/Dashboard.aspx
Thanks Elliot! To clarify a couple points, any featured domains are not sponsored listings. They are selected based on quality, among other things. If there are no names currently being featured, the space is back filled by other closing inventory.
As of now, the logo defaults to the dashboard for users logged in. You can still reach the home page via the ‘Home’ link.
The system is really slow. I think it’ll be faster, it must be.
That make sense that if no featured hot picks were available that other domain name listings closing soon would appear there. You might add a blurb to that effect in order to prevent losing trust in your ability to pick hot domain names for sale. I like the changes 🙂
Nothing bad to say. The 3 versions of the site (Pc, Tablet and Mobile) have a great and clean design, which should be the rule today but is still yet more the exception.
It is so SLOW! I can’t even get in. And I’m using latets versions of Chrom and IE.
It’s running super slowly for me, too.
One thing I miss…
On the classic, I would click “view all” for pre release. I would then sort by date, and all the day’s pre release names with bids would come up. Not sure where I can do that on the new site.
Ugh. Not a fan of the new design/layout… changed back to the classic.
New design is slow and getting “Invalid search term” errors whenever I try to use the advanced search.
