ARI Registry Services last week announced the launch of a service to offer Top-Level Domain (TLD) DNS services for new TLD applicants and country code TLD (ccTLD) operators.
ARI Registry Services say they are now seeking to position their DNS service as an offering capable of providing greater flexibility and transparency in the marketplace for TLD registry operators.
At launch, the foundation clients for the service include in excess of 450 new TLDs, positioning ARI Registry Services to be the largest DNS provider, per TLD, in the world once delegation is complete.
Adrian Kinderis, CEO of ARI Registry Services, welcomed the launch, saying:
“DNS is a fundamental element of our growth strategy and a natural progression given our credentials in DNS management and registry services. We are not kidding around,” Mr Kinderis said.
“Our intention is to be the largest provider of Top-Level DNS in the world within a year – a bold statement I realise. However, with the support of our foundation clients we have shot out of the blocks.”
Kinderis said ARI Registry Services was aiming to achieve a clear point of differentiation in the DNS market.
“While we obviously tick all the boxes technically, we are not introducing a ‘me too’ product that is differentiated on technical capability or specifications alone. ARI Registry Services’ DNS delivers more, including bespoke pricing models, complete data transparency and a greater overall flexibility for established, growing and yet to be launched TLDs.
“Our outsourced model has been developed from our own experiences as a registry operator and we pass this experience onto our clients. We are combining commercial insight and technical excellence which is something we feel to be extremely unique,” Mr Kinderis said.
“We will change the way you think about DNS. I am absolutely certain of it.”
ARI Registry Services has more than 10 years of Top-Level DNS management experience through the construction, deployment and operation of registry and DNS services for various country code TLDs around the world.
