We are delighted to be able to tell the world that we are now an ICANN accredited registrar!

Next week a couple of us will be travelling to Phantasialand, which is somewhere near Cologne, Germany. For the last few years I’ve been getting invites to attend WebhostingDay, but haven’t been able to actually attend.

ICANN‘s 34th public meeting officially opened earlier today in Mexico City. The “hot topic” for this meeting will be “new gTLDs”. At the meeting in Paris last year ICANN paved the way for the introduction of a whole new range of domain extensions. While many in the media hailed the announcement as being a “free […]
