Name.com Android app – Domain name registration

Manage your domain names from your phone

UPDATE – Sadly, the Name.com Android app is no longer available 🙁

I’ve always liked using Name.com as a registrar, and now I have even more reason to. I stumbled upon their Android app recently, and its actually useful. They didn’t just make a marketing or sales tool, because there’s more to it than finding and registering new domains. You can also manage your existing domains, including renewals, nameserver and DNS changes, whois info, domain locking, payment options, and more.
