Voice.com Domain Name Acquired for $30 Million (Updated)

By comparison, GoDaddy’s bulk search tool (which I use occasionally) allows 500 domain names per search.

In addition to the press release I shared below, Namecheap also posted a video to show how visitors can use the bulk search tool to find domain names:
