Uniregistry inks distribution deal with GoDaddy
Frank Schilling’s registry finally comes to agreement with GoDaddy.
Frank Schilling’s registry Uniregistry has signed a registry-registrar agreement with GoDaddy, paving the way for its top level domains to show up on the world’s largest domain name registrar.
The ink on the agreement is barely dry, so you won’t find Uniregstry’s names on GoDaddy just yet. It’s possible they’ll be available at the registrar before the general availability of .christmas and blackfriday on July 8.
Uniregistry’s domain names, including .link and .photo, have had a decent start. Yet they were severely hampered by distribution.
Given the number of free domains given away through some registrars, it’s hard to judge GoDaddy’s marketshare of new TLDs. But it’s the market leader, by far.
Word on the street is that Uniregistry’s contract for registrars has a couple clauses that turned off domain name registrars.
