Name-Based Email Addresses Give Consumers Control of Their Unique Internet Identity
Netidentity, an email and web domain services company, has impressively amassed the Internet’s most comprehensive, surname-based collection of domain names, from Allen.net to Zimmermann.com.
Representing over seventy percent of the surnames of both the U.S. and European populations, this is the largest collection of domain names on the Internet for email accounts and website addresses.
Netidentity was founded in 1996 on the simple premise that each person can have a secure and memorable email address or web site, just like the name they are known for in real life. For example, instead of using a random word and number combination, Claire Daniels is Claire@Daniels.net or Rachel Smith is Rachel@Smith.net.
“Netidentity enjoys loyal users who renew their accounts year after year,” said Wanita Burnett, Director of Marketing for Netidentity. “This is very interesting to our resellers in our partner program. A lot of them have subscriber-based services and are searching for ways to attract new customers and keep them.” Netidentity’s services can be privately labeled by companies wishing to offer additional services for their customers and to build customer contact lists comprised of email addresses that aren’t likely to change. Burnett adds: “The Internet is a primary means of communication for many people. Netidentity provides such a practical consumer solution by allowing users to use their own names. If you try it, you will very likely keep it for life.”
Netidentity, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. Netidentity offers its customers a unique, personal, name-based email address in an increasingly crowded Internet. From Allen.net to Smith.net and Zimmermann.com, consumers select their last name and create an email address or website address from a vast domain name inventory that covers over 70 percent of the most popular surnames in America. In 2002, Netidentity acquired Nameplanet, adding approximately 70 percent of the most common European surnames. Today, Netidentity offers the largest name-based domain name collection on the Internet to consumers wishing to register their names as their email addresses, and premium email services that can be customized with advanced features such as POP, Webmail, IMAP, email forwarding, URL redirection, and Web site hosting.
