In an effort to extend the reach of its domain name registration services,
register.com Friday inked a pact with Ask Jeeves, which lets users of
the search engine register domains directly through the Ask Jeeves site.
The deal also allows Ask Jeeves (ASKJ) users to sign up for other site-building services
through promotional placements on the site. Placements for register.com’s (RCOM) services will also appear in the sponsorship area
of the computer channel.
“By providing register.com’s easy-to-use domain registration services
within the AskJeeves site, we’re in a position to help millions of people
increase their web presence by purchasing domain names, email and other
Internet services through a Web site they know and trust,” said Richard
Forman, president and chief executive officer of register.com.
