CentralNic is excited to be able to continue to realise its objective of increasing the number of domain extensions on our global distribution platform by adding these fantastic TLDs to the portfolio that we offer to retailers (“registrars”) globally.”

Bhavin Turakhia, Founder and CEO of Radix said: “Radix decided to award these contracts to CentralNic following our excellent experience partnering with them on the .pw and .in.net domain extensions.  They have proved to us the value of their integrated global registrar network, their technical strength, their deep expertise in selling domains, and their ability to work with our people as a united team.”

The first of the Radix TLDs is expected to launch through CentralNic in Q2 2014.  Domain name retailers around the world will obtain .website, .host, .space and .press domain names via the CentralNic platform to sell to end users.
