Tucows licking their lips over YummyNames

Tucows announced today the launch of YummyNames, a new service providing exclusive access to a large selection of premium domain names from Tucows own domain name portfolio. Created especially with marketers in mind, YummyNames allows people to search for and obtain the perfect domain name for their organization from tens of thousands of high-quality domain names.

“It’s important for marketers and organizations to realize they don’t need to settle on a lousy domain name,” said Bill Sweetman, General Manager, YummyNames. “Domain names are a vital component to successfully marketing a brand – whether it’s the launch of a new company, website or marketing campaign. A high-quality domain name is short, relevant and most important, easy to remember. We’re excited to open the Tucows portfolio of premium domains to the public through YummyNames. We’re confident users will find their perfect name.”

The Tucows domain portfolio mostly consists of names that were not renewed by registrants, as well as domain names that were purchased as part of the 2006 Netidentity acquisition. According to Frank Michlick of Domain Name News, Tucows portfolio consists of over 70,000 names.
