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.
Afilias is the world's largest provider of domain registry services, supporting more than 20 million registrations across 16 different TLDs, six of which are new TLDs under contract with ICANN! In fact, Afilias has more new TLD registrations than all other registry services providers combined.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number(ICANN), the global body which manages Internet names and numbers, will soon unleash new generic Top Level Domains (gTLD). These new gTLDs are designed to increase choice and competition for all Internet users. Soon, one can apply for the name of one's company such as .tata, .reliance or .sony or for a city name, such as .kolkata , .delhi and .mumbai. Rod Beckstrom, CEO and President of ICANN will share ICANN's perspective on the new gTLD program.
