OpenRegistry, which operates .sx and is the registry provider for a number of new TLDs, has raised a round of funding.
Domain name registry OpenRegistry announced today that it is raising 2M euro.
The registry already provides technical services to run Saint Martin’s .sx domain name. 21 applicants for new top level domain names selected OpenRegistry to provide registry services, although a couple have withdrawn. Some of the bigger names selecting OpenRegistry include .boston and .deloitte.
Among the investors is New Zealand domain name registrar Instra Corporation, which is also behind the new Mega file sharing service started by Kim Dotcom.
The financing round is spread over the coming year, meaning the full 2M euro was not funded upfront.
