The site will track which .web.com names have been added, deleted and transferred on a daily basis.
Name Intelligence will also power domain name lookup results for Web.comÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s domain name reseller program. This will allow all of Web.comÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s resellers access to industry standard technologyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âthe same technology that powers the biggest players in the fieldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â for checking domain name results and alternatives.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWeb.com fills an important need through its .web.com domain registry,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Name Intelligence CEO Jay Westerdal.
