Afilias to Buy Entire TLDs at NamesCon

Want to sell your TLD?

Afilias VP John Kane is heading to NamesCON in search of new TLDs to buy. Registry Operators looking for a good new home for their TLD should see John.

As an industry leader, Afilias wants every TLD to be supported by a strong, committed registry operator with the resources to ensure its stability, security, and growth. If YOU have a TLD that needs a new home,

Afilias recently bought the three StartingDot TLDs. .bio has joined .organic and .green in the Afilias “Planet Pack” group of TLDs. .archi continues to serve the architectural community. And .ski is set to capitalize on the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea beginning next week.

Don’t want to sell, but need a new RSP? TALK TO AFILIAS

Afilias has recently been selected to provide registry services for several prominent TLDs, including .org, .pr and, most recently, .au. The domain authorities in each case selected Afilias for our 17 years of experience, the high quality of our service, our partnership approach, and the overall value Afilias brings.

If your contract with another provider is expiring, or you just think it’s time to move on, NOW is the time to talk with Afilias. We are ready to provide competitive pricing, and our industry-leading transition experience means we can move your TLD without risking service drops.

“Afilias has an active program for supporting growth in our industry. One key element is acquiring Top Level Domains that need a stronger base from which to grow. Another is to provide technical services for registry operators who need a more committed and flexible partner. Afilias’ experience in building TLDs, coupled with our state of the art technology and registrar friendly platform, provides a strong foundation for success and can help enable TLDs to reach their full potential,” said Roland LaPlante, chief marketing officer of Afilias.
