What are Account Blackwords? This information might be out of context

You can define words or phrases as blackwords in your settings, which will prevent you from purchasing matching domains whether buying individually, in bulk or via the NameBright API. This is especially useful to avoid trademarks, copyrighted brand names or non PG-13 content.

Blackword definitions also support the following simple wild-card matches:

Prefixes ( % )

A "%" symbol after a backlisted word will block domains that begin with the word. For example
”casio%” will prevent you from purchasing, but not

Suffixes ( % )

A "%" symbol before a backlisted word will block domains that end with the word. For example
”%citi” prevents you from purchasing a domain that ends with "Citi", but not if "Citi" appears elsewhere: You could purchase, but not

Negative Matches ( - )

A negative match is done with a minus sign "-", blocking certain keywords while allowing longer variations. For example
”Ambien -ambient” will prevent the purchase of, but will not restrict the word "ambient".

Inclusive Matches ( + )

An inclusive match prevents the purchase of domains that contain two or more words. For example
”Amazon +Store +Book” would not prevent buying, but it would prevent which contains both "amazon" and "store".

Combine the above commands to achieve even more powerful results.
