LogicBoxes powers .co registrar for transition of domain names.
LogicBoxes, a sort of “registrar/registry in a box” solution, announced today that it is the registrar backbone behind .Co Internet’s transition of .co domain names from Universidad de los Andes to its own platform.
.Co is being commercialized into a global brand this year. As part of the process, the .co registry needed to transition 27,000 already registered third level domain names (e.g. name.com.co) away from Universidad de los Andes, which previously managed .co.
Eventually, all of the .com.co domain names will be transitioned to one of the ten registrars that will be initially accredited to register .co domain names. However, the .co registry will continue to use LogicBoxes to maintain restricted domains including .org.co, .edu.co, .gov.co and .mil.co.
A number of domain name companies and individual domain investors use LogicBoxes to reap the benefits of owning their own registrar without the technical headaches.
