Change My Default Login Time This information might be out of context

NameBright has specifically prevented your browser from remembering the password to our site. This is so that you do not accidentally log in on a public computer and have that computer remember your password - giving anyone who uses that computer in the future access to your account.

The Login Storage Length option lets you tell NameBright how long we are to remember a given login before asking you to login again. We recommend setting this to be as short of a time as possible. Especially if you are using public computers to login to NameBright.

As you would expect, once you click the "Logout" button, you will be logged out and NameBright will require you to login again.

While it is not recommended to set a login time of days, or even weeks - if you are positive you only access NameBright from private computers, and want to take a little more risk - we do allow you to chose your login length for periods up to 30 days at a time.

What is the NameBright Security Log?

The security log is a place where you can monitor what is happening in your account. There are three severity levels... Information, Warnings and Critical. Security logs do not just provide you information about what is happening with your account, but when you have linked accounts setup (where other users can access your account) this will give you full control to see / know what is happening within your account and what user(s) have taken specific actions.

Informational: This is for your information, typically is not important details. Informational security logs typically are account logins, changing of settings in your account (such as timezone), creation/deletion of categories, creation/deletion of email accounts.

Warnings: Warnings are slightly more important to you than Informational messages. These include Failed login attempts, domains being transferred to other registrars, domains being pushed out of your account, credit card expiration notices, etc.

Critical: Critical messages are those that you should really pay the most attention to. These items include, but are not limited to ownership change of your account, password changes, turning the ability to delete domains on, actual deletion of domains from your account, adding linked accounts, etc.

Every domain has it's own domain history associated with it, so do not look in the account security log for changes to privacy protection, nameservers, host records, etc.

* Please note that not every action in NameBright creates a security log. And NameBright reserves the right to add/delete and change security log information, as well as change the severity levels assigned to each action.

Linked Account This information might be out of context

Linked Accounts allow you to grant someone else permission to your entire account, or just part of your account. Please use this form carefully as you are granting someone else access to your domain names. The person you grant access to should be a trusted person as they could potentially do harm to your domains. And in the worst case, if you grant "Not Recommended" permissions could transfer domains out, delete domains and more.

Because there are a lot of settings, and a lot of power/control with linked accounts we will provide explicit help instructions on every step of the process. If you do not understand something, be sure to click the question-mark on each step to learn more about that particular step of the process.

As you have already noticed, to be able to initiate linked account access, you will have to get the username and email address of the user you are requesting that get access to your account. If the person you are trying to give access to does not have a NameBright account, you must first get them to create a NameBright account of their own.

Push domain help

If you want to push a domain to another account you must provide the user's email address and username before the push can be initiated. This is for security purposes to make sure you don't accidentally push a domain name to the wrong person. You can not push the domain to someone who does not already have an account with NameBright.com.

Once a push is started it will expire in 5 days if the receiving user does not log into their account and "accept" the push from their end. Tell the person that is receiving the push to go to NameBright.com > My Account > Transfers > Pushing To Me. Once he/she accepts the push it will immediately be moved from your account to theirs.

If the person receiving the push wants to put the domain into a specific category or add privacy protection, they will be given the opportunity when they accept the push. (not when you initiate the push)

If the push is not accepted by the "Request Expires On" date, the push will automatically be cancelled and the domain will remain in your account. For this reason it is important if you want the push to complete that the recipient of the domain(s) accept the push in their account within 5 days of the push being initiated.
