GoDaddy has agreed to acquire Neustar’s Registry business.
The Neustar Registry business features backend registry technology platform and enhanced domain security systems that enable people and brands to connect and transact online with speed, security and reliability.
The Neustar Registry business includes domains, including .biz, .co, .in, .nyc and .us, and supports more than 215 TLDs and approximately 12 million domains. This includes its Managed Registry Services business that provides registry management for over 130 brand TLDs and 70 generic TLDs.
“Neustar’s registry platform provides enhanced scalability for future growth. GoDaddy has used its consumer insight to drive innovation in the domain industry and we’ll continue to do so by creating more choice and value for consumers,” GoDaddy Chief Operating Officer Andrew Low Ah Kee said.
GoDaddy has an association with NIXI to support the growth of the .IN domain name. Small businesses and entrepreneurs in India need a strong online presence and GoDaddy is focused on helping them with the best possible choices for domain names, Nikhil Arora, managing director of GoDaddy India, said.
GoDaddy Registry will be led by Nicolai Bezsonoff, currently senior vice president and general manager of Neustar’s Registry business.
