TLD launch in 5 minutes; with full AnyCast and cloud powered Registry Services

In 2014, several hundred new Top Level Domains will be added to the DNS root by ICANN. But this massive transformation of the internet landscape is only a beginning and ICANN has already announced that more “gTLD application rounds” will follow, allowing more companies and individuals to run their own extension.

RealtimeTLD gives the possibility to add a Top Level Domain to OpenTLD’s platform and start new domain registrations in 5 minutes. ¬†While current DNS providers take days or even weeks to launch a new extension, this automated service will change the way people think about TLD development and will support new business models.


RealtimeTLD is the combination of several OpenTLD technology components:

OpenTLD Core

The Core is the center of the system, where all other components interconnect. For scalability and stability, it is primarily coded in Python and Perl. Because all data storage, processing and administration is performed within the Core, its primary quality is to handle large data flow in a redundant and secured way. Through the use of the latest database and API technology, OpenTLD is able to deliver near real-time transactions.

OpenTLD AnyCast Cloud

The AnyCast Cloud is a platform of AnyCast servers that are organized in a dedicated Cloud. Using a fully automated interface, any Top Level Domain can be added, manage and deleted without manual intervention. This highly scalable infrastructure allows more flexibility than ever before.

OpenTLD Registration Engine

The Registration Engine handles all domain registration done via the web front end and the APIs. It processes all data streams and generate orders to various child-services. Because of the high volume of transactions, it must also be monitored and several anti-abuse tools are used to detect patterns and take immediate action. For the first time, domains registered can be made available in just seconds using state of the art DNS propagation and zone updates techniques.
