Openprovider Partner Event 2016 (Utrecht)

Openprovider partner event
Looking back at the success of last year’s edition of the Openprovider Partner Event, we had no doubt that we would do it again. Since we sent the “Save The Date” announcement back in June, there was no time to relax anymore and the result exposed itself last week: a full Silo 61 in DeFabrique in Utrecht, a diverse program and many, many enthusiastic reactions.


Simplified gTLD owner change process

trade domains update
Following up our previous announcement on the updated owner change (trade) process, we are happy to provide you with updated information that will make the process much easier.


Get your premium .tv domain name!

You can already register the .tv "premium" domains in Openprovider. At first these domains were blocked by the registry, Verisign, which has recently put them on sale at a price higher than that of normal .tv domains.

Struggling with consolidating your domain portfolio?
