St. Ingbert, 2012-08-24, AdamsNames Limited, since 1999 the official administrator for the top level domains (TLDs) .TC, .VG and .GD, has partnered with the KSregistry GmbH to operate these TLDs. AdamsNames will use KSregistry as basic, technical framework for domain registration and management. The German based provider KSregistry GmbH offers a customized technical registry operation and comprehensive tools to facilitate registrations at registry, registrar and reseller levels. KSregistry is a fully-owned subsidiary of the international domain registrar Key-Systems GmbH. Supported by KSregistry GmbH, AdamsNames Limited launched the operation of the country-code top level domains (ccTLDs) .TC, .VG and .GD on August 13, 2012.

After taking over the operation of .DM (Dominica) in June 2012, KSregistry now is the technical backbone for three further ccTLDs, namely .TC, .VG and .GD.

'AdamsNames has decided for a registry solution tailored to its needs and customers' wishes by choosing KSregistry as technical basis for its ccTLDs. The KSregistry technique provides a stable, state-of-the art infrastructure for domain registration and management', states Alexander Siffrin, CEO of KSregistry GmbH. 'Many companies are offering TLD management services. With KSregistry we found a team with experience and a stable system', adds Carsten Pauli, Director of AdamsNames Limited.

Due to the modular character of KSregistry's services, the customer-specific solution can be expanded and modified according to changing needs at all times.

By using the data center of SKYWAY, a 100 per cent Key-Systems subsidiary, fast reaction times and full process control are secured.
