Through the partnership, Parallels customers will have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the initial phases of the new TLD launch.
The eNom portal, officially launched in October at the cPanel Partner Conference, helps hosts that don’t have resources to get individually accredited build a Watchlist, and take orders for the Sunrise, Landrush and General Availability periods of the new TLD launches.
Through eNom’s integration with both WHMCS and Plesk, more hosting providers will have easy access to the tool, and use it to market new TLDs to their customers.
The watchlist module, which is the first module available through the new TLD portal via Plesk, captures expressions of interest from customers to drive leads and revenue associated with new domain extensions.
The service, called “eNom New TLD Extension for Parallels Plesk Panel”, will be available through the Server Management Extensions in the Service Provider interface or directly from the Parallels Partner Products site.
“The Internet is undergoing an historic change, and our valuable relationship with eNom enables us to provide solutions and information to educate customers who want to be on the forefront of this revolution,” John Zanni, vice president of marketing and alliances for Parallels said in a statement. “Access to the new TLD space will tremendously benefit our customers, and eNom makes this possible.”
Sheridan will speak about the new TLDs program on Wednesday, February 6, at the Parallels Summit. His session will take place at 1:30pm in the Partner Theater. Recently, Zanni gave the WHIR a preview of what to expect at the 2013 Summit held in Las Vegas.
“The excitement around new TLDs is growing, and our integration with Parallels helps validate this,” Chris Sheridan, vice president of business development for eNom said in a statement. “Through these integrations, we’re opening up the opportunity for a new group of businesses and consumers to become actively involved in the innovative new TLD market. eNom’s session on new TLDs is aimed at educating attendees on this exciting time for the web.”
