Some SnapNames-caught domains to be managed at NetworkSolutions

Domains caught by SnapName’s own registrars will be managed through Network Solutions.

SnapNamesHere’s the first notable change as a result of Web.com acquiring expired domain marketplace SnapNames.

SnapNames announced today that domain names acquired through a SnapNames credential (i.e. registrar) will now be managed via Web.com registrar Network Solutions. Previously these names were managed by Moniker.

I can already hear the collective groan from domainers not wanting domains at Network Solutions given the labor of transferring domains out.

The good news is that domainers will get discounted pricing on domains kept at Network Solutions that were acquired through SnapNames. .Com domains will renew at $9.59 per year. Although a bit pricier than some rivals, at least you won’t feel forced to transfer the domain out after one year to avoid a hefty renewal fee.
