CentralNic and REG.RU Confirm Strategic Partnership

The longest-running global registry CentralNic and the Russian domain name registrar REG.RU have signed a strategic partnership agreement.

REG.RU offers domain registration in more than 180 international and national zones, hosting services and a wide range of related services containing unique products and designs, such as Stat.reg.ru statistics service, Reg.Choice — an intellectual service for domain name selection — and others.

"Thanks to our collaboration with CentralNic we are able to provide our clients with a brand new level of domain registration services and exclusive products based on innovative concepts", said Alexey Korolyuk, REG.RU CEO.

"We are very happy to have REG.RU as our main partner in Russia. The strength in the Russian market provided by REG.RU will greatly complement CentralNic's core strength as the world's number one registry of third level domains.", said Mar Perez, CentralNic Head of Business Development.
