'''eNom''', is [[ICANN]] accredited and the world's second-largest domain name registrar, providing domain name registration, hosting and other online services.<ref>[http://nomcom.icann.org/bios-2008.htm icann.org]</ref><ref>[http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-150442240.html Highbeam Research Article]</ref> [[Paul Stahura]] founded the company in 1997.<ref>[http://www.crunchbase.com/person/paul-stahura Crunchbase - Paul Stahura]</ref>
In May 2006 eNom was acquired by [[Demand Media]], and in 2007 eNom acquired [[BulkRegister]].<ref>[http://www.dnjournal.com/cover/2007/january.htm The Domain Industry News Journal]</ref> It rose to become the second largest registrar following its acquisition of [[BulkRegister]],<ref>[http://www.domaintools.com/internet-statistics/registrar-stats-2007.php Domain Tools.com, Internet Registrar Statistics 2007]</ref> although it continues to be run as a separate service.<ref>[http://www.bulkregister.com/ BulkRegister]</ref> [[Demand Media]] went on to acquire [[Name.com]] in January, 2013. The reasons for the acquisition were noted as adding a new outlet to sell as many [[New gTLD Program|new gTLDs]] as possible, and bolster Demand Media's line-up by adding a "retail registrar", given that its current eNom service is a "reseller registrar". Name.com frequently positions itself as a fun and safer alternative to [[GoDaddy]], the world's largest [[registrar]].<ref>[http://domainnamewire.com/2013/01/07/demand-media-acquires-name-com-as-registrar-consolidation-continues/ Demand Media Acquires Name Com As Regsitrar, DomainNameWire.com]Published 7 Jan 2013, Retrieved 9 Jan 2013</ref>
