ICANN accreditation consultancy provider LogicBoxes announced on Tuesday that it has launched a solution, Integrate Vertically, for new gTLD operators that want to set up a registrar subsidiary to distribute TLDs to resellers and users without depending exclusively on existing registrars.
This news comes a couple of weeks after Go Daddy withdrew its new gTLD applications to focus on providing non-competitive services to its registry partners.
The solution is a package that offers consultancy to take new gTLD bidders through the ICANN Registrar Accreditation process, front-end and back-end registrar software set-up using its OrderBox product, process and compliance management, and includes white-labeled end-user support.
“The electric fence that divided registry and registrar operations since 1999 has been torn down. gTLDs will soon out-number the active registrars but their shelf space will be very limited. Incumbent registrars will not be able to focus on all gTLDs as they do today. New gTLD operators need to plan their distribution strategy and evaluate the need to setup a registrar subsidiary,” Sandeep Ramchandani, business head of LogicBoxes.
LogicBoxes says that once integrated, all new gTLD clients can channel their string to LogicBoxes base of more than 100 registrars and 100,000 resellers.
Last year, web hosting provider Genious Communications tapped LogicBoxes to accelerate its ICANN accreditation process from six months to two months.
