CentralNic partners with JISC to support critical UK domain infrastructure

 

CentralNic Group plc (AIM: CNIC), the global internet platform that derives revenue from the subscription sales of domain names and web services, has been awarded a significant project by Jisc , the UK not-for-profit company whose role is to support UK higher and further education and research.  

 

The project, which will run for a minimum of three years, will see the installation of CentralNic's registry software and the global management of some of the UK's most critical domain extensions including .gov.uk, .gov.scot, .gov.wales and .llyw.cymru under the administration of Jisc.

 

Gavin Brown, Head of CentralNic's Registry Services division, said. "We are thrilled to have been awarded this project by Jisc. CentralNic's registry software is the most sophisticated solution for domain registry management. This project win is doubly exciting for CentralNic.  As a UK-headquartered company, we are proud to be supplying the software platform that supports the Janet Network, which is a crucial to UK education and research."

 

Steve Kennet, Executive Director of E-Infrastructure, Jisc, commented: "We selected CentralNic to provide the software that supports our domain name infrastructure because of its excellent technical capability and also because of its impressive track-record. Having operated for more than 20 years, CentralNic's software platform already supports more than 20 million domain names and hosts nearly 50% of all new-style domain names globally. This proven stability and CentralNic's clear understanding of our requirements made it the obvious choice for technology partner."
