Sell More Domains with Namespinning

By Matt / January 16th, 2018

If you aren't using Namespinning, you could be missing out on potential domain sales.

We've all been there. You have an idea, you think of the perfect name, but when you go to register the domain, you find it's already taken. As hard as you try to find an alternative, nothing else seems quite as good. That's where Domain Namespinning comes in.

With the Namespinning functionality built into WHMCS 6.0 and later, when your customers enter a domain or search term on your website, WHMCS will provide the customer with a choice of domain name options to choose from.

Whether it's options for when a users first choice of domain is already taken, or additional domain names the user may want to secure in addition to their original search, Namespinning is a tool that helps your users find their perfect domain, and helps you sell more domains.

How it works

Namespinning works by taking the name or search term a user enters and generating a list of relevant, meaningful and related keywords to that search. Those are then combined using the full range of extensions you offer for sale to provide the customer with up to 100 possible alternative names that are available for registration.

The Benefits

Namespinning has the following benefits:

How to get started
