User Interface (UI)
As far as the UI goes, the website looks like a modern day website. The homepage focuses the central attention on the domain name search box, which is what every user would like to use when searching for domain names. This makes it much more easier. The homepage also showcases different useful products that could be of interest.
When placing an order for the domain name registration, the Add to Cart system is appealing and sensible. Finally the Checkout process itself is very simple and the layout of the estimate helps in understanding of the costs very easily. All in all, the UI looks good, although it could use some improvements such as using darker text and enough contrast.

name.com Review Conclusion
name.com could be a real good provider to go with if it weren’t for the costs associated with their services. They charge for the domain privacy separately and this was unexpected. I would have definitely recommended them had they provided domain name privacy for free. In that way, I could have got domain name registration along it’s privacy for $10.99/yr. But that does not happen, the total price amounts to almost $15 and this total falls in the higher range.
Here is an example that can give you a better idea of the costs associated with their services, if you choose them. If you buy 10 domains with them, then you end up paying almost $50 extra every year. Although this is half of what the other pricey websites charge, it still is expensive.
Verdict on name.com as Domain Name Registrar
I DO NOT RECOMMEND name.com for buying domain names as their total price is high.
