CentralNic picks up contracts for new TLDs from rival.
New top level domain name applicant Radix has selected CentralNic to be the backend registry provider for its .website, .host, .space and .press top level domain names.
Radix had originally said that ARI Registry Services would be the technical services provider for all of its top level domain names.
With that in mind, it was somewhat surprising when Radix chose CentralNic to power its .pw launch in 2012. That relationship was apparently successful and a sign of things to come.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of Radix’s domain names switch to CentralNic as they roll out in the future.
CentralNic, mostly known for powering third level domain names registrations such as something.us.com and something.eu.com, went public in September. It is banking on new TLDs for future growth.
