Gate.com Domain Names Review & Summary
Gate.com offers competitive domain name registration, and all registrations come with webmail, POP, SMTP and IMAP, with unlimited aliases, email forwarding and autoresponders, all backed by Symantec’s Brightmail AntiSpam system to filter out the unwanted spam emails.
Gate also offers registration of .PRO domain names, which are reserved exclusively for verified licensed professionals and professional bodies. These domain names immediately establish your credentials as a professional, and since registration is restricted, it also means you are more likely to get the name you really want.
Your domain registration includes three web pages to start your site, and a free and intuitive SiteBuilder web design tool to help you quickly create a professional website. For some customers the three pages may be all they need. For example, some customers use their pages to build an online resumé and apply for jobs, to market a new product, create a website to give as a gift, to share photos of the family, and to keep others updated on your favorite sports or hobbies. If you have more complex needs, an inexpensive upgrade is available with over 100 templates for a website with unlimited pages.
Domain registration at Gate includes a personalized email address matching your domain name, to create a professional image. Each domain has a mailbox with a storage of 250 MB (although for a small monthly fee you can upgrade to 50 mailboxes and total storage of 2 GB). The mailbox is POP3/SMTP, and you can access your emails via webmail or with Microsoft Outlook. Your mailbox is protected against spam and viruses.
Every Gate.com domain account includes an online control panel, so you can easily manage your domain online. There are also three powerful and inexpensive add-ons to help you control your domains even further:
- WhoisProtector Ultra, which replaces the Whois database for your personal contact information with Gate.com’s database, ensuring your information is kept private
- WhoisProtector Lite, which ensures only your email address is visible in the Whois database, but keeping your name, address and phone number out of Whois
- Domain Guard, which protects you against unauthorized changes to your domain settings
Gate.com’s pricing is extremely competitive, and you pay the same price for all domain name extensions (except .PRO), and for all new registrations, transfers, and renewals. If you do experience any problems, Gate’s experts are available 24/7 every day of the year by telephone on 866-856-7165, and you can also access support via your control panel.
