Domain Registrar Tucows Inc. Reaches 10,000,000 Domain Milestone

April 5, 2010 by  

Web Hosting ToolboxTORONTO – Tucows Inc. (NYSE AMEX:TCX, TSX:TC) today celebrated a significant milestone, surpassing 10 million domain names under management.

The rise to 10 million was led by Tucows’ wholesale services group, OpenSRS. OpenSRS provides domain name registration services through a reseller network of over 10,000 web hosting companies, ISPs, Internet consultants, and other service providers in over 100 countries.


“We owe a lot to our network of resellers who helped us get to this 10 million name milestone,” said Dave Woroch, EVP of Sales, Tucows Inc. “Over the past ten years, we’ve been focused on ensuring their success so that they, in turn, can focus on their customers’ success. Our approach has clearly paid dividends for everyone involved.”

Leveraging its large and diverse channel of resellers, and more importantly, the close relationships those resellers have with millions of Internet users, OpenSRS has eclipsed well known retail registrars such as Network Solutions, 1&1 and Register.com. In fact, the “10 Million Club” includes only three members, Tucows, Enom and GoDaddy.

“Domain registrations are the foundation of our business and our reseller network gives us incredible reach worldwide,” explained Tucows CEO Elliot Noss. “Thanks to our wholesale model, we are able to tap into both growth markets, and also established segments that deliver consistent growth over the long-term.”

Mitch Haber, VP of Product Management at The Endurance International Group, an OpenSRS reseller, offered his congratulations. “OpenSRS is a true partner. Their platform is solid and their support team is among the best in the industry. They have played a key role in our success and we look forward to working with them toward the next 10 million domains under management.”

The more than 10 million domain names under management includes domain names managed under Tucows’ ICANN accreditation, as well as names Tucows manages for other registrars under their own accreditations.
