Bluehost Now Offering Bulk Domain Registration

In another step toward making life easier for our customers, we’ve recently rolled out a new bulk domain registration tool.   Now customers can search for and register up to 500 domains at a time, giving them the ability to instantly secure all the domains they need, and all from right within their control panel.

Why bulk domain registration?

While you may only need something simple when you first sign up, many customers have additional needs as their sites and business grow. They may open additional businesses, add a personal site, or simply need to protect their brand. Before this new feature, customers had to check if domains were available one at a time. Now you can do a full scan of up to 500 domains at once, saving valuable time. The bulk domain registration tool is easy to use, works with every TLD we support and will work with every TLD we add in the future. And with new TLDs now available for registration with Bluehost, and many more coming soon, that means customers now have dozens (and later hundreds) of TLDs to choose from.

“Over the last few years, one of our ongoing goals has been to simplify the control panel and its tools. It’s a difficult process, mainly because we have so many advanced tools for advanced users,” says Mark Calkins, vice president of development for Bluehost. “The bulk domain registration tool was an expansion of that effort; we wanted to take something that took an enormous amount of time and provide a simple way to do it with a few clicks.”

How to use it:

To use the bulk domain registration tool, simply visit the domain manager in your control panel. From here, visit the “Register” tab and click the “Bulk Register Domain” button.

Next, all you have to do is enter all the domains you want to register into the space provided. You can separate them by commas, spaces, or even hard returns. You can enter up to 500 domains at a time. Just click “Check” to see which of the domains you listed are available for registration.

From here you’ll be provided with a list of available domains you are searching for and alternate suggestions for those that are not. Select the domains you want to register and click “Next.”

On the next screen you can set your domains to automatically renew and add privacy protection to your new domains. When you’ve selected your preferred options and agreed to the Terms of Service, click “Add to Cart.”

Lastly, you’ll review your order and make any changes, such as adjusting the terms of your registrations (Quantity) or  remove any items you no longer want. When you’re ready, click “Process Order” and the domains are yours!

We know our customers always need more power and flexibility, including in the online tools they use on a regular basis. The bulk registration app is a powerful tool that can help customers spend less time clicking the mouse and more time finding ways to succeed online.
