Radix & WHMCS Offer Free .HOST Domains to All WHMCS Customers

WHMCS offers its web host customers a free .HOST domain name, 2000+ domains registered within 5 days of launch

Leading Web Hosting Billing and Automation provider WHMCS, announced today that its partnership with the .HOST domain registry (Radix) has received an impressive response within the first week of launch.

The partnership gives all WHMCS clients the opportunity to register a .HOST domain name free of charge for the first year. The program has garnered immense popularity with over 2000 registrations within the first 5 days itself.

"We believe that .HOST is a great product for our customers and defines exactly what they do. As always, we wanted to make sure our customers are ahead of the curve getting the best deals possible as we really see .HOST evolving into a signature domain name for the hosting industry", said Matt Pugh, CEO of WHMCS. This partnership comes as a first of its kind, where web hosts are provided with a simple and unique opportunity to strengthen their digital brand identity and at the same time expose their brand to a newer audience with the help of an instantly recognizable domain extension.

WHMCS customers were notified of the offer on the 18th of February and were thrilled to note that the domains were available at no cost (first year registration). An initial analysis of the names being registered shows customers registering domains for the primary brands along with some exciting keyword rich domain names which could be highly valuable in the long run. Customers were also delighted to find high quality 3 and 4 letter domain names available.

"We were excited to work with WHMCS and the scale of the partnership gave us the opportunity to build an offer that would really appeal to their customers. We're really happy with the outcome and foresee a very healthy uptake and renewals", said Sandeep Ramchandani, Business Head at Radix, when asked about his views on the partnership.

Radix and WHMCS have already received positive feedback through various channels on the partnership and hope to continue providing value for their combined customer base with innovative offers and deals.
