.CO Internet, the Registry behind the highly anticipated .CO ccTLD has partnered with LogicBoxes to set up its local registrar.
Online PR News – 16-March-2010 – – .CO Internet S.A.S. (www.COinternet.co) proudly announced the successful transition of local .CO domains from the Universidad de los Andes (UniAndes) to the company’s own Registrar platform in partnership with LogicBoxes.
.CO Internet is the Registry operator and the driving force behind the .CO top level domain (TLD) launch, which is shaping up to be the most highly anticipated TLD of recent times. In addition to acting as the Registry, .CO Internet has taken on the responsibility of managing the 27,000 existing 3rd level .CO domains including the restricted .org.co, .edu.co, .gov.co and .mil.co domains on behalf of UniAndes.
”Working under incredibly tight timelines, and with a significant amount of custom development work required, we knew that finding the right partner would be critical to our success” said Nicolai Bezsonoff, Chief Operations Officer for .CO Internet. “We evaluated various other options, including building a platform in-house. As it turned out, LogicBoxes suited our requirements perfectly. It was very reassuring to have an experienced partner who we could rely on to ensure for a safe, orderly data migration.”
The .CO restricted domains database now sits on the LogicBoxes infrastructure and the migration was completed with zero downtime to existing customers. These domain owners will have access to a completely automated and real-time domain management experience, including the availability of Spanish IDN domain names.
“We were confident that this would be well within our technical expertise, given the extensive processes we’ve handled for Registries like .MN, .ME and .COOP in the past” said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and Founder of LogicBoxes. “Working in this niche space has helped us hone our expertise and we’re happy to have had the opportunity to extend it to multiple Registries.”
.CO Internet is also using the readymade infrastructure provided by LogicBoxes to better support its customers. “Leveraging the flexible multi-lingual and multi-currency support of the LogicBoxes platform, we are now able to offer registrants versatile, localized control panels to suit their needs,” added Bezsonoff.
Turakhia further added “We’re delighted to have partnered with .CO Internet for this promising TLD and foresee a wide level of global adoption for .CO domains.”
With its many connotations and global identity, there is an eager line of Registrants awaiting 21st June, when second level .CO registrations open with the Landrush.
