Domain Name Management Services
Benefits : Respond more quickly to domain name errors
While domain name registry errors are very rare, they do happen from time to
And any developer of a domain name management tool that does not disclose
this fact to you and how they handle these scenarios is truly lacking.
Because given the nature of
everyone's dependence on the integrity and high availability of the global domain
name registry, errors have the capacity to impact everyone.
But in different ways...
Even though Namestead has no control over the domain name registry, Namestead
still handles the vast majority of errors seamlessly and transparently.
In most cases you will never know the domain name registry was unavailable, because Namestead
is built on a proprietary, self-healing architecture.
Namestead elegantly handles domain name registry error conditions through
patented error handlers. And this code logic with its embedded rules are
adaptable to the changing states and conditions of the domain name registry.
Being alert with the ability to learn is the foundation of intelligence.
Finally for those issues that can not currently be addressed programmatically, they are
resolved directly by Namestead staff who are always monitoring the system for unusual
Download Software vs. Web-Based Applications
Unlike some of the shareware / download software that you can buy to watch
your domain names (i.e. WatchMyDomains),
with Namestead you are not and never will be "on your own" when it comes to
Namestead staff members are working to constantly improve the service.
It is our goal to anticipate
and resolve problems proactively.
The makers of download software can not promise the Namestead level of
because their distribution model is inefficient and their sales strategy
provides few incentives for ongoing support.

are fully tested and published online in a matter of a hours.
all applications, web-based applications require significantly less testing than download software.
This is because, when tested properly, download software has
to first be regression tested for many different environments and
And regression testing is a significant time and cost expense.
|Download software is risky
because you never really know what you are downloading onto your computer.
Download software is usually delivered as an executable, exe
file. It always best to exercise caution when downloading executable
Many organizations will not allow dot-exe files through the corporate
firewall, because .exe files can contain viruses, ad-ware and other
For these reasons, download software should be double-checked for no
viruses and validated to be ad-ware free.
|Namestead is different,
because it is entirely web-based.
There is nothing to download and it is technically impossible to
install a virus from simply using a web-based service like Namestead.
Namestead will not crash your computer, hog your computer memory or in
any way slow down or busy your computer.
Web-based services are not the future, they are now.
|Download software requires upfront costs that
transfer all of the risk to the buyer.
In some cases, this can even induce a pump-and-dump sales
When all of the costs are collected up front and there is no real
business or income stream to protect, there are very few tangible
incentives for the developers to continue supporting the product.

service approach emphasizes excellence in customer service and continuous
We feel that in order to continue providing service, we must
proactively respond to customer needs and constantly innovate the service
The Namestead focus on service is the reason for our success at
retaining a solid customer base.
