Afilias' specialized technology makes Internet addresses more accessible and useful through a wide range of applications, including Internet domain registry services, Managed DNS and award-winning mobile Web services.
Have you seen the press release announcing that Afilias has acquired the .PRO registry from Hostway Corporation? We’re excited to bring a new top-level domain into the Afilias family and help grow the use of it. I also think it shows that the top-level domain business is a unique one – and it’s not one to be entered into lightly.
The .PRO domain is set to grow with strategic focus from Afilias
Afilias Limited, the ICANN-designated registry operator for the .INFO top level domain (TLD) and a global provider of domain registry services, today announced that it has acquired Registry Services Corporation (d.b.a. RegistryPRO), the ICANN-designated operator of the .PRO TLD, from Hostway Corporation. This brings to 17 the number of top-level domains that Afilias supports, including seven generic TLDs (gTLD) operating under ICANN contracts and seven new TLDs launched since 2001.
Für eine erfolgreiche TLD-Bewerbung sollten Unternehmen jetzt handeln
Für Unternehmen beginnt heute die Bewerbungsfrist für ihre eigene Top-Level-Domain (TLD). Afilias, globaler Anbieter von Registry-Services, rät Unternehmen dazu, so bald wie möglich eine Entscheidung darüber zu treffen, ob sie bei der Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) eine eigene Internetadressen-Endung für ihre Marke beantragen möchten.
Afilias advises companies to act now for successful TLD applications
Following the application window opening today for businesses to manage and run their own top-level domain (TLD), global registry services provider Afilias is advising companies to make an informed decision as soon as possible about whether to apply for their own dot Brand domain from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
The New TLD Application window is now closed.
ICANN recently closed its first application window for unique top-level domains. Instead of advertising for the company that owns .com, your brand can be your Web address.
On January 12, 2012, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will open a process that could trigger a dramatic expansion of the Internet and launch a new era of online innovation. We are familiar with .com, .org, .net, among the roughly two dozen generic top-level domains currently occupying the Internet's addressing system. Hundreds, possibly thousands of new gTLDs, could be moving in within a year.
U.S. government hearings discuss implications of new TLDs
Afilias, the domain name registry operations company behind .info, .mobi and 14 other Top Level Domains (TLDs), is urging brands to ensure they fully understand what the new “dot Brand” Web extensions mean for their business. dot Brands are unique TLDs that are tied to a single business. Think “drink.pepsi” instead of “pepsi.com/drink.”
92-day period for new gTLD applications begins on January 12, 2012
Afilias, the domain name registry operations company that runs .info and .mobi, and supports 14 other Top-level Domains (TLDs), is advising leading brands about the short time remaining before the “dot Brand” application window opens on January 12, 2012.
