Business Listing allows your customers to add marketing content around their Whois information and display it in the WhoisBusinessListings.com directory. It supplements the usual bare-bones Whois output with a wide variety of information, from product descriptions and business hours to current promotions and even a map of their location.
Listing their businesses in WhoisBusinessListings.com helps your customers increase their search engine rankings by adding inbound links and associating search terms with their Web sites.
Business Listing collateral is available on our Marketing Collateral page:
Business Listing is available for .com, .net, and .tv domain names.
Business Listing is available only for domain names registered with us.
