More about OpenTLD
OpenTLD in numbers :
OpenTLD’s Registry solution integrates all components needed to operate a Top Level Domain: AnyCast DNS, Registration Engine, Registrar & Reseller interface, and APIs.
OpenTLD’s AnyCast Cloud DNS is one of the largest and most resilient network of its kind. With over 465 million DNS requests per day, it supports 8% of all the domains on the internet.
OpenTLD maintains close relationships with several technical and non-technical partners who help improve our technology and the reach of our domains.
Whether you are an ICANN Accredited Registrar, a webhosting company or an online entrepreneur interested in offering Free or Paid domains to your users and customers, OpenTLD has a solution for you.
RealtimeTLD gives the possibility to add a Top Level Domain to OpenTLD’s platform and start new domain registrations in 5 minutes, while current standards require days or even weeks to launch a new extension.
We are working on a number of projects to improve DNS technology and change the way it is used by industry professionals and end-users.
