LogicBoxes announced today that it now empowers over 5 million domain names, through 50,000 resellers, across 90+ ICANN Accredited Domain Name Registrars, in 240 different countries.
With the domain name industry growing rapidly in the past 5 years, LogicBoxes has been a pioneer in providing domain registry and registrar solutions. Through its unique offering of a Registrar Automation Platform, LogicBoxes now powers over 5 million domain names across 50 top level domains (TLDs) such as .com, .org, .net, .info and several country code top level domain (ccTLDs) such as .ca, .nz, .uk (the ccTLDs for Canada, New Zealand and United Kingdom respectively).
Given the unique optimized products and services that LogicBoxes has to offer, the company has a strong foundation to leverage upon and attract the myriad community of registrars and resellers across various TLD and ccTLDs. Having crossed 4 million domain names in 2009, LogicBoxes took just one year to reach its next landmark of 5 million domain names. This record growth of 5 million domain names not only shows the company’s zest but also its strong potential to grow further. This domain name count is expected to shoot even more with Logicboxes new upcoming projects one of them being the recent partnership with one of the world’s leading Hosters – HostGator.
“I am proud of the fact that Logicboxes now powers 5.46% of the total domain names on the internet. In a short span of time we have been able to penetrate deep in the market and reach such a high point in our business. LogicBoxes will continue to launch new TLDs and ccTLDs on its Registrar Automation Platform to further strengthen its domain name portfolio and reach even bigger milestones.” says Bhavin Turakhia, CEO & Founder of Directi.
He added “The key to LogicBoxes success is its Registrar Automation Platform which represents an ongoing research and technical development of over 8 years. Our in-house team invests a considerable amount of time and effort towards continuously adding new tools in our platform; enabling us to set industry benchmarks. The platform is so extensive that we are able to offer many more features and better services than our competitors at a cheaper price. We recently re-launched our website builder product with added features and functionality. We are also planning to launch SEO services sometime soon. Year after year we have launched several new products and features on our platform to stay one step ahead of the competition”
And in accordance with this philosophy, Bhavin will be introducing and giving a brief talk on “chat.pw: Enterprise chat for customers of web hosts” at WorldHostingDays 2011 in Germany next week. In fact, the LogicBoxes team will be present at WHD’11 between the 22nd and 25th of March. Sandeep Ramchandani, Director – Strategic Partnerships, will also be holding a session on “Demystifying ICANN accreditation” for all the service providers present at the conference. Do drop by our booth and say hello!

In our 6+ years of successfully helping companies receive ICANN Accreditation, we’ve accumulated a list of common questions that every company aspiring for ICANN Accreditation is bound to ask.
We plan on answering all these questions through a simple interactive presentation that can help companies (including web hosts) objectively assess their ICANN Accreditation plans.
Almost all of the largest companies in the web products and services industry are ICANN Accredited. These include big names such as 1&1, Go Daddy, The Planet, Lunarpages, HostGator, etc. And every year, scores of web services companies (webhosts, domainers, web design companies, internet focused law firms, etc.) apply to obtain an ICANN Accreditation. They do this for varied reasons, which range from the obvious cost advantages to the slightly more strategic reasons such as branding, the tapping of additional revenue opportunities, etc.
Needless to say, every company has to tread with caution; ICANN Accreditation is an important step. It takes money, time and effort.
Not everyone that applies for an ICANN Accreditation really needs it. More importantly, however, not everyone that applies has what it takes to handle the Accreditation.
The webinar aims at answering ICANN Accreditation questions like:
- How much does an ICANN Accreditation really end up costing? What are the hidden costs?
- What rules and regulations will companies need to abide by if they get ICANN Accreditation?
- When or at what stage should I look at getting my company ICANN Accredited?
- Is ICANN Accreditation really worth it?
The presentation will be ably supported by Tim Cole, Chief Registrar Liaison from ICANN. Tim will be providing an ICANN’s perspective on what you can expect from the Registrar Accreditation process.
Why are we the best people to talk about this topic?
Because LogicBoxes (through its service Accreditation.com), has helped accredit over 15% of the world’s Registrars. We also power the domain registration software of industry powerhouses like UK2.net, ResellerClub, WordPress and HostGator
