Yesterday there was an announcement from Adam Eisner that our partner and registrar OpenSRS has acquired EPAG Domainservices GmbH who is a registrar based out of Germany.
From the OpenSRS Blog:
We were immediately drawn to EPAG not only because of their offerings (they currently offer more than 280 domain extensions), but because of their expertise and reputation as well. EPAG is known for its fantastic amount of international domain name experience, and we think their knowledge and skills will help greatly as we continue to grow our own domain name business here at OpenSRS.
As you can see from their TLD list EPAG has a huge amount of gTLDs and ccTLDs in their portfolio. With this acquisition OpenSRS will begin integrating EPAG’s TLD portfolio into their own.
How do you benefit from this? HostDime is known for being one of the premier global web hosting companies and with that effort we want to be able to provide you with services available to your country, not matter what country that is. Being a partner of OpenSRS will also give us access to register over 200 new gTLDs and ccTLDs at very competitive rates. Allowing us to pass these savings to you!
By the end of 2011 we should have over 200 TLDs available for you to register through your HostDime Core profile. We will keep you updated through our blog as we receive more details.
