In December 2011, the DotDM Corporation, official administrator for the Top Level Domain .dm, chose KSregisty GmbH to operate the new .dm registry platform. The KSregistry system will be the technical backbone for three further ccTLDs soon. The KSregistry GmbH is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Key-Systems GmbH.
The KSregistry system will serve as the technical basis of .dm and will supply the DotDM Corporation with comprehensive tools to facilitate registrations at the registry, registrar and reseller levels. “We are glad that .dm registrations now become available with the KSregistry technology. The KSregistry GmbH delivers a stable and efficient basis for the successful future development of the TLD .dm“, says Alexander Siffrin, CEO of KSregistry GmbH about the .dm re-launch. Jennifer Aird, CEO of the DotDM Corporation, adds: “It is my delight and privilege to announce the re-launch of the .DM Registry platform through partnership with Key-Systems. Because of their commitment to sustaining a robust, quality-engineered Registry Solution, supported by an extensive re-seller network, we anticipate not only increased registrations of .dm domain names but also a heightened awareness of the Commonwealth of Dominica and its offerings to the world.”
The KSregistry solution offers features and functions necessary for the operation of a registry. It is completely adapted to the customers' needs. The customer-specific solution can be expanded and modified according to the needs changing over time. In addition, Key-Systems ensures a stable, state-of-the-art infrastructure for the registration and administration of .dm domain names. By using Key-Systems’ own SKYWAY DataCenter, fast reaction times and full process control are guaranteed.
With ICANN’s new gTLD program, companies and organisations were allowed to apply for their own top level domain such as .BRAND or .COMPANY by the end of May. In case their application is successful, over 30 new gTLDs will deploy the technology of KSregistry in the future.
