With NamePros becoming so important and relevant to companies bottomlines there is also a necessity of following the rules setup over the years for the smooth functioning of the board and to provide equality to all members. People who do not follow these rules and regulations are warned initially. If multiple warnings are ignored then the member might get a two week suspension or even an account closure depending on the severity of the offence.

The things to be really careful about :

  • No duplicate accounts – you can get banned permanently for infringing this and the staff have many ways of finding these accounts.
  • No Bad Business – Don’t post sold or place a bid if you can’t follow through on it. With 120,000 members and thousands of sales every day the staff has a real low threshold when dealing with these problems.
  • No promotion of illegal activities – Another thing that sets NP apart from all the other web boards is the instant response to promoting illegal activities, whatever they might be.

The rules are fairly easy to follow but you need to know all of them well to ensure that you dont mess your account and thus revenues via NamePros.

Its not all work though, the members have an awesome sense of humour and a great attitude which is reflected in: The Break Room, Radio NamePros, Welcome Center.

Coming this week is the Annual NamePros Party. Lots of fun events, live chat, voice chat, radio shows, great promotions and give aways and much more. Its by far the most fun you’ll have online, so if you’re not a member yet – please sign up and if you are, get ready for a PAAAARRRTTTYYY!!

  8. hehe.. I have own web hosting site but now I think I need to follow you :).

  9. Namepros isn’t what it used to be …
    It has not only become a dumping place for crappy domains, but also for shitty people. So much bittering and toxic behavior from frustrated, pathetic immature kids who think they’re domainers but can’t sell.
    I really don’t get why if it’s not working out for them, they have to destroy everyone else’s day and mood, instead of just giving up on selling domains. I don’t get why most of the people there have to insult others, harass them, saying domains which are clearly worth over $1,000, that they are worthless and he won’t even get his registering costs back.
    And the moderators are the same, they notice the conflicts and they punish the one who gets most vocal – most likely the victim trying to defend himself after being harassed, provoked and taunted by 2-3 trolls. Afterwards, they don’t see or care who started the conflict and that it’s a toxic environment. The victim’s posts defending himself is deleted, but the aggressive harassers posts aren’t and they aren’t punished at all. It’s only natural for them to have people harassing others, they probably even laugh about it at their desk. Rednecks …
    Oh and did I mention that moderators take the side of those with VIP status? Get VIP if you wanna trash other people on a daily basis, just for fun.
    Namepros is not only a total waste of time and energy, but a danger for your well being and sanity.
