NamePros stats : Very close to hitting 1 million members

NamePros has been online as a domain forum since 2003, and it’s getting very close to hitting 1,000,000 members.

While not all of these accounts could possibly be active concurrently, the forum administrators ensured us that new members are real people, not bots.

The current number of members stands at 997,226 and Eric Lyon estimates that it’ll cross into seven digit territory sometime in May.

Says Eric:

“We have state-of-art spam filters in place to ensure that only real people are creating accounts on NamePros, so unlike most sites on the internet, new signups are almost always real people […].

That said, there are human spammers who sign up on forums and we end up closing those accounts manually once they spam.

There isn’t much we can do about humans signing up with an intent to spam, but we close those accounts quickly and we’ve become very effective at stopping robots from signing up at all.”

NamePros achieved another milestone recently, with 1 million discussions (threads.) Additionally, there are now almost 6 million comments, and that means the NamePros database is quite a few gigabytes! 😀

    NamePros is a good place to grab some knowledge for any new domainer and for experienced as well. You can find lot of useful stuff on the forum all the time.

    No way that one million unique human beings have signed up for Name Pros. Zero point zero chance.

    Dom Bees – Many general forums surpass this number, and NamePros has been online since 2003. Nobody said it’s 1 million unique humans, however. It’s 1 million member accounts that completed the sign up process. The latter involves measures to deflect bot registrations.

    250 signups per day is what it would take get near one million. That is 10 per hour nonstop 24/7 for over a decade. No way.
