For organizations looking to establish a web presence, Namecheck.com provides easy means to search for a single available name across many platforms. Additionally, the site is an excellent tool for brainstorming names.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 14, 2011
Domain registrar United Domains announces the launch of Namecheck.com, an innovative new search engine for discovering and registering online names.
This user-friendly website allows for the simultaneous search of domain names, trademarks and usernames for the most popular social media networks, including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The easy to read results page lists available domains, usernames, and word-based trademarks in green, registered ones in red. Clicking on a result takes the user to either the account information if the domain or username has already been registered or to a registration page where the user can claim the available name.
Namecheck.com is designed to serve multiple audiences:
- Established companies and brands: companies can search with Namecheck.com to find gaps in their online brand management, or discover unauthorized third-party use of their brand or name. For example, a quick search for the name “Adidas” reveals that the Twitter username (http://www.twitter.com/adidas) is not being used by Adidas, the international sports manufacturer, but instead by an individual.
- New organizations: For organizations looking to establish a web presence, Namecheck.com provides easy means to search for a single available name across many platforms. Additionally, the site is an excellent tool for brainstorming names.
- Personal branders: Even individuals need a coherent online presence, and Namecheck.com can help job seekers, freelancers, and other personal branders secure their name to help build a solid online reputation.
United Domains acquired the noteworthy and internationally recognizable domain name Namecheck.com in November 2010 for $50,000.
