As a registrar, by offering NameBlock to your customers, you help make the internet a safer place while also increasing your revenue per customer!
NameBlock helps your customers protect themselves and their brands online.
NameBlock helps prevent DNS Abuse by using several variant generator and string evaluation algorithms to identify the different variations of the registrant’s block term that are the most likely to be targeted for abusive purposes.
NameBlock can be integrated into your current checkout flow, offered as a stand-alone product, or used manually by account managers.
Using NameBlock's easy-to-implement API, you can offer your customers one of NameBlock's services in the same flow as they register or renew a domain name. Our API allows you to pass through their domain term and pull examples of what would be blocked, making their purchase decision simple and quick!
For more complex blocks, such as ones requiring validation, end-users are able to access their retail dashboard at NameBlock.com. This makes it easy for customers to choose which extensions they would like to block, provide any required validation documents, such as an SMD file, and manage a large number of blocks.
Boutique registrars offering personal service to their clients and corporate brand management registrars, for example, are able to access their wholesale dashboard at NameBlock.com and manage all of their clients' blocks. Similar to how a registrar can manually interact with a registry's backend provider, we give you the freedom to directly manage your account.
You need to sign our NDA so that we can walk you through the payments, levels of blocks, integration steps and more. Contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org to take the next step!
Yes! We have a sandbox environment that will allow you to test and check all of your endpoints.
First, you’ll need to sign our NDA and our master agreement to onboard with NameBlock. After that, you can easily access the NameBlock marketplace portal via our web interface, and/or you can integrate with NameBlock via an API that allows you to see available extensions and block levels so that you can offer them in your standard customer purchase flow.
The Anti-Abuse Block offered automatically as part of your regular registration or renewal flow does not require any verification process. For other packages, e.g. Exact Match Blocks or customized block packages etc more traditionally offered by corporate registrars, there will be a standard trademark verification process applied.

Yes! Domain names that are determined not-blockable by our algorithm (e.g. due to consisting of generic words or similar) will be highlighted and suggested to the registrant as names that they should consider registering. Additionally, a separate list of domain names relevant to the Block Label from a pure brand protection perspective can also be generated by NameBlock and sent to the registrants by the registrar after a completed Anti-Abuse Block purchase.
Most of the time, support inquiries will be handled at the registrar level; however, we're here for any additional assistance that you, or your clients, may need!
