What Is a Premium Domain? This information might be out of context

A Premium Domain is a domain name that is already owned by someone else. These domains are listed for sale through NameBright.com at fixed prices. This means the owner is willing to sell rights to this domain name for this price. This is a one-time cost to buy rights to the domain, and after you acquire the domain you can renew it at annual yearly costs for under $10.00 per year typically. (Price will depend on the exact extension)

In today's market most quality domain names are taken or used, and the ability to purchase a Premium Domain will help you jumpstart your business or give your business an additional boost.

Premium Domains that are purchased through NameBright will be available for use in your account almost immediately after purchase has been made.

What is Free Multiserver? This information might be out of context

When you license an SSL Certificate it is usually only good to be used on one public server. Virtually every SSL NameBright sells gives you the option to license additional servers for an additional cost.

However, only a few SSL certificates allow you to run the certificate on unlimited servers without additional licensing costs. This is what we have denoted as “Free MultiServer” because the certificate comes with the permissions to run this certificate anywhere you need.

For most certificates that are not marked as “Free MultiServer” – you still can purchase additional licenses when you add the certificate to your cart. If you are not prompted with an option for how many additional servers and this certificate is not marked as “Free MultiServer”, it is one of the few certificates that will not allow use on multiple servers.

Upgraded Domain - Blocking IP Addresses in DNS This information might be out of context

If you have some special circumstance where you know an IP address that you do not even want hitting your network - block the IP Addresses directly at the DNS server! This way the traffic won't ever hit your server. It won't ever hit your network. It won't even hit your firewall.

For example - assume you are getting attacked by a DDOS which is using 10 very heavy servers (which is fairly common), and you know these IP Addresses. However you are having issues because your firewall just is not robust enough to open and close all of these sessions fast enough. This is the ideal application. Once you add those 10 IP Addresses into the blacklist for this domain, your network eventually won't see any of this traffic at all. Because the DNS traffic will then point to a special website we have setup that literally says "access denied". (We will take all requests from these IP Addresses and forward the traffic away from your domain.) All of your other customers won't notice a thing.

Due to database and performance constraints you can only add 100 IP addresses at a time. If you need more than this please contact our sales team to discuss upping this limit to suit your particular needs. When possible, we suggest using CIDR notation as this will allow you to block an entire range of IP Addresses when technically only using 1 of the 100 records.

Note, because DNS queries are cached it can take up to a few hours for all IP Addresses to see the new IP and start hitting that instead of your server. But at least a few hour turnaround is cheaper and easier than the alternative of being down for 24 hours. (and we do not guarantee this to thwart your attacker, but it is a pretty good solution.)

What happens when my domain expires? This information might be out of context

If you do not renew your domain name before it expires, the domain name goes into a status of "Expired". This means your domain name will not function correctly, you will not receive email from the domain (if configured), and if you do not renew the domain shortly, it will go into the final process of being deleted from the registry. If you do not renew your domain name shortly, it will enter a point in the expiration process that is called "Redemption Grace Period", and at that point it will cost a lot more to reactivate the domain name than it does to simply renew it right now for the renewal cost.

Please note most functions on this page still work. You can still update whois information on the domain and configure privacy protection. However, as the domain name is expired you are not able to change other things such as nameservers on the domain, or to change locking for the domain. These functions are restricted at the registry and NameBright does not have control over this.
