We have an exciting month ahead of us at LogicBoxes. Why, you ask? ICANN66 Montreal is set to take place from 2nd – 7th November 2019 in (of course), Montreal. Before we dive into the event details, let’s step back a bit.
As the last major registrar/registry focussed event of the year, this ICANN conference is the perfect time to catch up with our clients and colleagues from the industry to discuss the failures and successes of 2019 and what 2020 promises.
LogicBoxes’ Focus & Future plans
We’ve had a pretty great 2019 at LogicBoxes. Some of the key initiatives that really gained momentum this year were:
1. Vertical Integration Program for registries
LogicBoxes for a number of years has been the leader in providing vertical integration solutions for registries (ccTLDs and New gTLDs). Our solution enables registries build a retail storefront for their TLDs to capitalise on their marketing efforts and communicate their core value proposition which is extremely difficult to do via the usual registrar channel. This year due to our roadshows, we gained significant interest and new partnerships with some of our prospects. This proved to be a huge success for us in terms of revenue and customer growth.
2. Registrar Automation Program:
LogicBoxes, for many years has been known as the go-to platform provider for ICANN Registrars and hosting companies that intend to become known in the near future. 2019 proved to be immensely successful for this program due to the fact that more and more hosting companies that were growing in customers wanted to have more control over their domain pricing and strategy. This therefore saw a rise in the number of ICANN Accreditations we did for such companies who now use our platform for their domain business as registrars. Additionally, existing ICANN registrars looked to outsource their domain business to a solid platform to reduce overhead operational costs that have significantly increased due to continual compliance and legal burdens/pressure/mandates being put on registrars.
We look forward to sharing more details about these initiatives at the ICANN66 conference meet.
