registry.net Offers Registrar System for New Top Level Domains

registry.net GmbH makes available a registrar system as a managed service to help TLD operators ensure that their domain names can be registered in conformity with ICANN regulations.

Munich, 04 September 2012 - Having submitted their application to ICANN, operators of new TLDs have to tackle further challenges. They must find the optimal solution for offering domain name registration to their customers and for including domain name management of company and brand TLDs in the company's processes. The regulations of ICANN stipulate that a registry is not allowed to implement registration orders directly, since they must be initiated via an ICANN-accredited registrar. Thus, every TLD operator does not only need a registry service provider (RSP) but also at least one ICANN-accredited registrar for their TLD to make the TLD's domain names registrable.

Registrar system and domain management

registry.net GmbH offers a registrar system as a managed service to help TLD operators ensure that their domain names can be registered in conformity with ICANN regulations. Being a member of the ICANN-accredited InterNetWire Group, registry.net too can assume the role of a TLD registrar. Equipped with an EPP-standardised (Extensible Provisioning Protocol) registry interface, our registrar system is principally compatible with any new gTLD registry.

Reseller and client compatible

Our registrar system is reseller and client compatible. In company and brand TLDs, customers may set up sub-accounts for departments, branches or partner companies, so that they can independently register and administer domain names via the user-friendly web interface. General overview and control always remain with the company.

SOAP XML interface

Besides the web interface, the registry system also provides of a SOAP interface. With this API, domain resellers like registrars, web hosters or ISPs are able to carry out registrations and administer their entire domain name portfolio via their own systems. The SOAP interface may also be used to set up a connection to an end customer's web portal ("domain shop") for direct online sale of domains.

Time to market

"The advantages for commercial TLD operators are obvious." says Peter Hupfauer, Managing Director and COO of registry.net. "Taking things in hand also on the registrar level enables them to safeguard availability of their domain names on the market and to reduce dependence on registrars. For many new TLDs time-to-market also is a critical factor, since the prevailing registration chain via registrars and connected web hosters operates autonomously."

"With the registrar system PartnerGate we can apply a domain management system that has proven useful for years in the InterNetWire Group, to which registry.net belongs. Reputed ISPs and registrars like Claranet Germany or noris network AG are relying on this system and have outsourced the technical operation of their TLD accreditation," Hupfauer further explains.
