What is NameReel?
We are a naming service for startups. Our names are carefully crafted so that they build a story, create emotions, have rich meanings and "feel", and give you the opportunity to create a successful brand with the credibility of a .com domain.
What do I get?
The .com domain ownership of a great name. There are no leasing or recurrent costs. To keep your ownership, though, you will need to renew your domain registration yearly, with a domain registrar. This can be done with any registrar of your choice.
How do I buy?
Because all our names are in our portfolio and there are no third party sellers, buying a name with us is straightforward and really easy. To buy, simply click on the "Buy it now" button and then fill in the billing and checkout form. We accept credit cards through Paypal. If you'd prefer another payment method (e.g. wire transfer, Escrow etc) let us know and we'll make the necessary arrangements.
Can I transfer the domain to a different registrar?
Yes. If you pay by wire or Escrow, you can transfer your domain as soon as we receive your payment at our end (it usually takes 2-5 days). With credit card payment, in order to avoid fraudulent charge-backs, you can transfer your domain after 60 days from your purchase. You don't need to wait, though: as soon as your credit card payment clears, we point your new domain to your name servers, so you can start using it right away.
Are your domains protected by trademark rights?
Our domains can be used for a variety of businesses and industries, all over the world. Therefore, it's impossible to know in advance specifics about the use of the name that would be required in a trademark application.
We encourage you to talk to a lawyer for any legal advice regarding trademarks. You can also do some research about active trademarks here, here or here.
Can I sell a domain with you?
For the time being, no. We run a lean operation and want to keep things clear and simple for our customers.
