New extensions in our Domain Memberships

On the 25th of May, we will add all extensions to our Domain Memberships for which we act on our own accreditation but that have not been added yet. No less than 36 new extensions can be registered, transfered and renewed at cost from that date onwards.


Bulk transfers of domains through robots

With our subscription plans, at Openprovider you can register your domains at cost price, getting the same price we paid for it, which saves you a lot of money and avoids you having to be accredited through several different registrars.


New accreditations: .asia, .in and other ccTLDs

Openprovider is always working on new accreditations in order to provide our customers with the best possible price and service. On the 7th of June, we will activate our own accreditations for the .in, .asia and a couple of other ccTLDs.


Webinar invitation: 100% encryption is happening! Increase your sales with DV SSL certificates!

100% encryption is happening. Each website requires at least a basic encryption. Browsers (Chrome, Firefox…) have been increasing the visibility of non-SSL warnings, and by the end of this year they will block some uncertified websites.

During this webinar we will explain how commercial DV certificates fit into the new industry initiatives to get all sites encrypted, and how to effectively market and sell them to your customers.

Early Access Program:

Some registries start their General Availability with a so-called Early Access Program (EAP). The EAP helps registrants immediately secure the domain names they’ve always wanted. Likewise, brand owners have an opportunity to obtain non-trademark domain names to help promote and protect brands, or register terms that dominate a market or industry.

  • 7 June: .store
  • 15 June: .gmbh and .ltd

More information about the EAP and why you should use it can be found in the blog.
