More Relevance and Control

Verisign Name Suggestion Service is a complementary service that uses advanced linguistic technology to sort and split each query into likely terms. Language trends and current topics collected from analysis of thousands of websites are factored into the creative suggestion results. Advanced control settings serve as levers to optimise and customise suggestions based on the registrar's or end user's requirements.

Advanced control settings serve as levers to optimise and customise suggestions.

A Rich User Experience

The user enters keywords or a domain name and adjusts the control settings (levers may be hidden from end users and set by registrar). The service processes the request and provides optimised suggestions in up to four languages. Since the Domain Name Suggestion Service accepts multiple words, characters and domain name strings, users have maximum flexibility and receive fewer errors. Advanced search options give users the ability to include or exclude words or phrases from their results.

Better Choices Mean More Conversions

Customers need help selecting domain names, especially for popular TLDs such as .com and .net. When a domain name search results in highly relevant and available options, customers are more likely to register more domain names. The Domain Name Suggestion Service enables registrars to offer a more convenient process and a better experience to their customers.

Multilingual Support

Verisign retained linguistic experts to develop German, Portuguese, Spanish and French domain name suggestions. Localised domain name suggestions can strengthen your presence in both established and growing international regions and satisfy registrant demand for native language domain name options.
