I hope you have all heard by now that we are an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) accredited registrar. Some of you may be wondering what this means for you as the consumer and for us as a business. By the end of this post you should know why it is so important to us and how you benefit from our Accreditation.
ICANN are the highest authority in the domain name industry. They govern the laws surrounding domain names. They are in charge of not only the Domain Name System (DNS) but also Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) and Generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). Basically they coordinate addresses online. Every time you type an address into your browser bar you are using the systems ICANN govern.
What better authority is there then than ICANN to verify Domain Registrars. ICANN accreditation involves a number of checks. ICANN check not only our financial health, to ensure that we are a thriving business with adequate protection in the highly unlikely event of any business failure, but also our technical ability to manage the hundreds of thousands of domains that you register with us. It’s like a stamp of approval to say that you can trust us with your domain names!
Checks from ICANN are always being refined and monitored. This means that the organisation regularly checks our status and ensures that we perform within the guidelines that ICANN set out for domain names. The domain name industry is so crowded with unregulated registrars offering services without any guarantee they will still be operating in the morning! Our accreditation shows you we are a great registrar with technical power and industry know how to help you with your domains. It also shows you that we are a genuine business with a great deal to offer! We are accountable to ICANN so we proudly show our accreditations whenever we can as it highlights our integrity and our desire to do things right! This is a philosophy that we apply across the board, with all our services, from free transfers, both in and out, to no win no fee Domain Back Orders that have become so popular with our customers.
Our customers mean a lot to us! We are proud of our accreditation and what it provides you with, that little thing that you seek in every service you use, security. We know how good our service is and it’s nice to have the governing body of our entire industry recognise that!
We also have accreditations from lots of other registries to ensure that whatever domain extension you are registering, you get the best service. This also gives us a direct relationship with the registries who allow us to negotiate prices and services for you! Further peace of mind for you that you are in the best hands in the business!
