Namesilo reaches 1 million domain names under management

NameSilo, a U.S.-based domain registrar, announced that it has surpassed 1 million active domains registered by its customers following 7 consecutive years of growth.

This puts NameSilo in the top 1% (top 30 registrars) of the nearly 3,000 ICANN accredited registrars in the world with a domain increase of over 35% in just the last 12 months.

NameSilo has transferred in nearly 410,000 domains from other registrars, while fewer than 43,000 have transferred out from NameSilo to other registrars. This 10:1 ratio is a very high customer retention.

“Since our launch in 2010, we have established ourselves as one of the most-trusted and secure registrars catering to an array of different customers,” said Michael Goldfarb, co-founder of NameSilo. “In the prior 12 months of statistics made available from ICANN, NameSilo added the 10th-most total domains and the 6th-most .com domains. This continues a long run of being among the fastest-growing registrars in the world, and our company’s growth continues to expand at an increasing rate.”

“NameSilo customers know that they will not be shown one price to ‘get in the door’ and another when it comes time to renew. They come to appreciate that we never play that game, that we can be counted upon and that their domains are secure” added Goldfarb. “It is a privilege to be embraced by consumers and rewarded with a level of loyalty that continues to accelerate growth. We will continue to listen to our customers and work hard to respond to their feedback and improve upon what we offer today.”

“In an industry where people have grown accustomed to misleading pricing tactics, bait-and-switch offers, security breaches and confusing interfaces, NameSilo’s transparent approach continues to spur rapid growth and we expect to become an even larger force in the domain registration market during the years to come,” added Michael McCallister, co-founder of NameSilo.

“NameSilo’s growth is primarily attributable to providing intuitive domain registration and management tools, responsive and never outsourced customer service provided via email, chat and phone, technical expertise, best-in-class pricing, and free add-ons that other registrars routinely charge for like WHOIS privacy, ICANN fees, email forwarding, enhanced account security options, parking and more.

Among the tools and services NameSilo has added over the years are things such as many top level domains, one-click technical integration to third-party companies for end users, email services and detailed reporting for small businesses, and a cadre of free investor tools and a low-commission full-service domain Marketplace for domain professionals. No matter who you are, or what your business, NameSilo offers everything you need for the easy management of your domains, and at consistently low everyday prices without having to hunt down coupons or wait for special offers.”
