Toronto (PRWEB) January 28, 2010 -- Twitter users across the globe are embracing the latest Netfirms domain name registration feature. In September 2009, Netfirms became the first ICANN accredited registrar to allow domain registration using Twitter. Their customers can now tweet a domain request to the Netfirms Twitter account, and have it registered securely within minutes.
This feature offers a whole new level of ease and simplicity for the savvy domain customer and Netfirms is seeing proof that their customers are recognizing the 'anywhere anytime' benefit of this new free service. On any given day, up to 5% of all domains registrations at Netfirms are being submitted via Twitter.
"We want to change the status quo on domain registration. This really excites us," says Thomas Savundra, President and CEO. "Remarkably, the Netfirms Twitter Domain Registration service has become the preferred domain purchase method for some of our customers. It's not just about the innovation, we're committed to developing new technology that simplifies the lives of our customers and helps them get their ideas online. This is why we got into this business in the first place."
For business executives, mobile registration can put them a step ahead of their competition in terms of securing a domain before someone else does. They can now quickly submit a domain idea during a meeting through their smart phones and have it secured before the meeting is over. "I love the convenience of their Twitter domain registration - it is perfect for when you are out of the office and that perfect website idea hits you," says Aaron De Simone, founder of iheartmediainc.com.
Netfirms offers domain names at $7.99/year with free WHOIS privacy and toll-free 24/7 customer service. To learn more about how you can begin registering your domains via Twitter with Netfirms, visit www.netfirms.com/twitter-domain-registration.
