Sedari and NCC Launch Programme to Assist New Registry Operators

NCC Group, the world's largest software and data escrow company, and Sedari, a consulting and technology company focusing on top-level domains, today announce a programme to assist prospective Registry Operators with the application and management of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs). Under the terms of this agreement, NCC Group will refer prospective registry operators to Sedari for consulting, and Sedari will refer prospective operators to NCC for data escrow and IT assurance services.

As part of ICANN's new domain name process, applicants must demonstrate how they will satisfy many different accreditation criteria. One critical requirement is to establish daily transfers of domain registration data to a reputable data escrow agent such as NCC Group. Data escrow is one of the five critical functions necessary to ensure continuity of operation in the event of a physical, technical, or business failure.

Liz Williams, CEO at Sedari said, "ICANN's data escrow requirement means that prospective registries have to find a provider with quality and reliability. We were therefore delighted to partner with NCC Group, as they presented a good combination of operational flexibility, technical expertise, and an easy to understand fee schedule. What we really liked was that their professional and pragmatic approach mirrors ours."

Tom Scopazzi, registry services manager at NCC Group, added, "Sedari is a great source of new clients for us. In a short time Sedari has shown themselves to be fleet of foot in establishing a global client base. Their current client list encompasses blue-chip corporates, city names and enticing generic names."
