Afilias Launches Managed Registry Services

Leader in registry services now offers a complete, outsourced 
"domain department" for brands and businesses

Afilias Limited, the operator of the .INFO, .MOBI and .PRO top level domains (TLD) and a leading provider of registry technical services, today announced the immediate availability of its Managed Registry Services.

Building on the experience Afilias has gained in administering and marketing three leading generic TLDs as well as its experience in handling technical services for 13 other TLDs, Afilias Managed Registry Services offer a complete domain management solution designed to free brands and companies from day-to-day domain administration and policy issues so they can instead focus on their core business.

"Managed Registry Services let Afilias be your domain department," said Roland LaPlante, Afilias Senior Vice President and CMO. "Afilias has more experience applying for, launching and running TLDs than any other provider, which makes us the best choice to help brands navigate the complex world of registry management."

Under its Managed Registry Services umbrella, Afilias offers support during two key periods for a new TLD operator:

1. Pre-Delegation – During ICANN evaluation, Afilias offers consulting services that include Bid Analysis and Advice, Trademark Clearinghouse, Evaluation Support plus Policy and Business Advice to help prepare for the launch phase.

2. Post Delegation
– Once ICANN has approved and delegated your TLD, Afilias will help run the launch and ongoing management with the following services:

a) Registry Compliance and Support Services, which include ICANN Compliance, Uniform Rapid Suspension System Procedure Compliance, Registry Code of Conduct Compliance, Abuse Monitoring, 24x7x365 Customer Service Support, Registrar Accreditation and Operational Test & Evaluation plus Registry Analytics and Reporting.

b) ICANN Policy Services, which include ICANN Liaison and Point of Contact services, ICANN Policy Issue Advice, IP Rights Protection, Escrow Coordination and Domain Abuse Mitigation.

c) Marketing and Channel Support Services, which will help establish the TLD with the registrar channel required by ICANN.

"Afilias Managed Registry Services are designed to help new gTLD applicants with their registry both prior to ICANN approval and after their domains are approved," LaPlante added.

Today, Afilias provides registry and DNS services for 16 TLDs and more than 20 million registrations, including almost eight million .INFO domains and one million .MOBI domains registered worldwide. In addition, Afilias supports .ORG, .AERO, .ASIA, .PRO, XXX, .AG (Antigua and Barbuda), .BZ (Belize), .GI (Gibraltar), .IN (India), .LC (St. Lucia), .ME (Montenegro), .MN (Mongolia), .SC (the Seychelles) and .VC (St. Vincent and the Grenadines).
