As we’ve mentioned many times since June, 2016 is the year of the Enom Evolution. We’ve promised a renewed focus on user- and developer-centric features to make the Enom experience as seamless as possible. To this end, we’ve redesigned Enom.com, opened a new hub for developers, and today, we’re happy to announce the launch of a new ticketing system.
The immediate effects of this investment into a new ticketing system will be faster response times and easier management of tickets, as they are processed. You will see a range of new features and functions, including improved search functionality and user-friendly navigation.
You will also notice a change in the way we communicate the status of your ticket to you. The emails you receive when a ticket (now referred to as a “case”) is opened or resolved will have a simpler and cleaner look than the previous system, which should make it more efficient for everyone to use.
We’ve been working on the Support Ticketing system for the last several months and are very excited for today’s launch. It will take a few days to make a complete transition, so in the meantime, all tickets that are currently open in our legacy system will remain there and be resolved from that platform. All new customer cases will use the new support system. Additionally, if you have entered a ticket prior to October 10th, you can continue checking the status of this ticket until the end of October.
We think this new ticketing system will greatly improve customers’ interactions with our support team and should minimize the inconvenience of any issues you run into while using the Enom platform. If you have any concerns or questions about the changes, feel free to reach out to us by email or visit our support account on Twitter (@EnomSupport).
We love launching new domain extensions at Enom, from .DENTIST to .SOCIAL and everything in between. Every new domain extension represents an innovative way for people, companies, and brands to put themselves online, but not many embody pure, unbridled fun the way the new .GAMES extension does. Fortunately, .GAMES goes into General Availability on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 (and if you act today, you can still grab a domain in the last day of the Early Access Phase), so the time to get this incredibly fun domain is here.
If you’re a gamer yourself, you’re in good company, with over 155 million Americans regularly playing video games. On top of that, add in those that enjoy board games, card games, sports, and casino gaming, and suddenly, you can see why .GAMES has the potential to click with so many people.
With so many gaming fans, it’s no wonder that games are big business, too. Game software is expected to be a $115 billion a year industry by 2020, and tabletop gaming (card games, board games, miniatures, etc.) is already an $880 million market. There are over 3,500 game development companies worldwide, not to mention independent and freelance games designers, many of which could benefit from a descriptive, memorable .GAMES domain.
Whether you’re a gamer, a game developer, or just enjoy fun and entertainment, .GAMES is the perfect domain extension to make your mark online.
Who can benefit the most from .GAMES?
- Game streamers and live video content creators
- Game development companies, publishers, and distributors
- Independent and freelance game developers and designers
- Games journalists and bloggers
- Professional and amateur sports teams, leagues, and events
- Casino gaming
- Hobby shops and gaming lounges
Where else can I find information on .GAMES?
Even though it hasn’t even entered General Availability, there are already several sources to get more information on .GAMES:

Duration: Two hours
Purpose: Database Replication Maintenance
Systems that will be affected:

In our recent post about Platinum domains, we mentioned that short and memorable domains are often considered the most valuable. Two-character domain names—that is, domains with just two letters and/or numbers to the left of the dot—certainly fit in the “short” category, and this quality often makes them much easier to remember, too. Until this point, two-character domain names in Rightside’s new TLDs have been unavailable to the general public. That changes starting this week.
This inventory of highly sought-after, two-character domains will go into an Early Access Period at 17:00 UTC on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, and into General Availability at 17:00 UTC on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, which happens to coincide with the launch of Rightside’s 40th new domain extension,.GAMES.
Download this list of the available two-character domains to see what you’ll be able to register. Here are just a few examples of short, memorable domains you’ll find in the list:
The many ways in which two-character domains can be used is a major strength of this inventory. They are instantly brandable for businesses that need to attract attention online. Facebook, for instance, paid $8.5 million to purchase FB.com, in 2010. Just this year, The Seattle Times began using ST.news as a link shortener in their social media posts.
However you decide to use these domains—or if you’re picking them up as an investment—this is going to be a great opportunity to own some of the best online properties ever made available. Download the list of two-character domains now and get registering!
Note: If you’re trying to search for two-character domains on our site before September 14, they will appear as “unavailable.” But as we mentioned in our previous post, Rightside Registry is always open to entertaining offers on its Platinum domains at firstname.lastname@example.org.
