We are pleased to announce that we are now officially an .US-accredited registrar!
As of the 1st of November, all new .US domain registrations will be carried out directly through us.
What does it mean to be an accredited registrar?
Becoming an accredited registrar is a long process, which involves lengthy negotiations with the .US registry Neustar.
The fact that we are now an accredited registrar means that the registry has recognized us as an active partner in the expansion of the .US domain registrants’ community.
This new partnership allows us to communicate with Neustar directly with regard to any .US domain name instead of relying on another partner – a practice, which would have considerably slowed down the whole registration process.
As an official .US-accredited registrar, we now have full control over all .US domain names that are registered through us.
We consider this accreditation not only a great honor and a huge responsibility, but also an opportunity to further reinforce trust between you and your customers.
Now that we are an .US-accredited registrar, both you and your customers can rest assured that all your .US domain names are in safe hands.
How will all this affect you and your customers?
The accreditation process itself has involved a lot of hard work on our end in order to prove that we are a worthy of becoming a Neustar partner.
We intend to keep working hard and pushing the pace in order to be able to provide the best possible domain registration service.
All of our hard work has paid off – from now on, you and your customers can communicate with us directly with regard to any .US domain name at all.
Since we will have direct control over all .US domain registrations, you can expect more frequent .US domain name promotions.
Plus, we’ll keep our .US domain registration prices as low as possible in order to give you a competitive edge over other domain registration service providers.
