Bulk Domain Name Management

We constructed our bulk management software from the ground up. Easy enough for the novice with a single domain, the NameBright domain management system is robust enough to manage 500,000 domains or more in a single account. It has been tested with some of the world's most demanding portfolios. Show us what you've got and we'll show you a system that puts you in control and makes life easier.

Domain History

No other registrar in the world provides specific domain name history like NameBright. You'll see each and every action that takes place with your managed domains and when they occurred. No more wondering "how did that happen?" or "who changed that?" NameBright's exclusive domain history keeps you informed and on track. View Sample

WhoIs Counters

Every day our NameBright WhoIs counters work to track how many times your domains are being searched. We keep a history of this information so you can keep on top of your domains and understand more about your domain.

"Linked Accounts"

Enterprise customers need to allow multiple people access to their domains. NameBright gives you the power to grant very specific permissions to different people so they can manage domains, update nameservers, or renew the registration. This can be done without creating security issues that could allow for a domain transfer. Linked accounts are perfect for web developers who need access to their client's domain, without having full control over it.

Free Domain/URL Forwarding

If you are looking to forward a domain name registered at NameBright to another domain or web URL you can do this for free from within the NameBright account management system. We allow domain forwarding as a URL Re-Direct (meaning the user goes to the other URL) or with URL Masking where the user continues to see the domain managed at NameBright while browsing the third party website.

Free Email Forwarding

While most service providers charge for email forwarding, NameBright does not. If you don't need a full-fledged email account, why pay for it? We provide free email forwarding for your domain names, so you can forward to any email address of your choice.

NameBright API

If you prefer working in a more automated fashion, you can access the NameBright system programmatically through our API command catalog.

Advanced Category Management

Managing groups of domains with a cumbersome, outdated system can be time consuming. Not with NameBright. Our system makes it easy for you to create categories to manage domain names. Each category can determine specific domain settings to be applied to all domain names in that category, or to "override" settings for any specific domain within that category.

Category Based Email Accounts

Should you choose to use categories to manage multiple domain names, you get the added benefit of having "category based email accounts" and email forwards. When you do this you specify the email address as "support" @ [category], and every domain in that category will have a corresponding email address. Thus you can communicate with your customers from and, all from one single email account.

1-Year Free Privacy Protection

NameBright offers 1 year of free privacy protection on all domain names. (When the extension allows privacy protection.) Privacy protection helps hide your identity, reduce spam, reduce offline mailers and hide your physical address. Privacy protection is currently $0.00 per domain name per year after the first year of free privacy protection. Note that privacy protection is only available on certain Top Level Domains, but not available / possible on other extensions.

Transfers Without Downtime!

If you have a mission-critical domain to transfer, simply create a category. Set up the category settings the exact way you want it. Move a test domain into that category and verify that everything is working correctly. (Including email accounts, email forwarding, privacy protection, etc) Then transfer the domain in having good confidence everything is set up correctly! Learn More

Disposable Email Addresses

If you create an email account that is a "wildcard" address (Example: *, you will have access to a feature we call "disposable email addreses." With this you can give out unlimited email addresses, and if you ever start getting spammed on one specific address, simply tell NameBright to trash that address.

Built From the Ground Up!

Security Centric

Domain names are valuable assets. They need to be securely monitored and activity tracked. NameBright not only uses best security practices, we also provide an Account Security Log. This ASL tells you exactly what is going on with your account at any given moment. No more guessing. With the NameBright ASL, you know exactly what is going on within your account. Who is logging in and from where. And you can see what they are doing. If you want even more security, turn on on your account!

Domain Management to the Second

In today's fast moving, mobile environment, knowing just the date that a domain name expires is no longer acceptable. At NameBright we are setting a new standard for domain name management. We provide you with expiration details to the minute and second. Most things that happen in our proprietary system are real-time accurate, allowing you to more confidently manage your domain names. It is yet another NameBright Advantage.
