Domain name provider SnapNames
and domain registry Radix have formed a partnership. SnapNames, which has headquarters in Portland, Oregon, United States, is a subsidiary of Jacksonville, Florida-based company Web.com. The company provides a marketplace for domain sales and purchases. The company caters to a global customer base by offering “over 30 million domain names annually at price points to meet any budget”.
Radix, which has corporate headquarters in Vienna, Austria, operates a number of the new domain extensions that went to market over the last few years. These include .press, .host, .website, .space, .tech, .site, .online and .store. These and other Radix domains are available through around 100 commercial domain registrars.
The cooperation between the two companies will see Radix make a large number of its high-value domain names available to the buying public through SnapNames’ infrastructure, the first being ‘.website’ domains. This will be followed by ‘.host’, ‘.press’, and ‘.pw’ domains in the coming period.
Domains will be sold by rolling ‘Order By’ dates that will allow buyers to automatically secure the domains they desire. Where more than one bidder wants to purchase a particular domain, it will be auctioned over a 3-day period. Domains available for purchase include ‘xxl.website’, ‘laugh.website’, and ‘2016.website’.
“The high-value domain extensions that Radix is bringing exclusively to SnapNames helps our customers stay a step ahead and carve out their place on the web,” explained SnapNames’ Vice President, Operations, Michael White. “Our customers are innovative, bold, and savvy. Partnerships with Registries like Radix are a natural step forward in our efforts to help them get the best domains on the market.”Do you know of any other industry players involved in partnerships?
