UnifiedRoot offers domain names without TLDs

Posted on Monday, November 28 2005 @ 12:00:45 CET by

A Dutch firm called UnifiedRoot wants to rid the Internet of suffixes like .com, .net, .co.uk and others. Instead the company wants to offer single names which can be countries, company names or fantasy words.
"The plan is to offer names in any character set," said Erik Seeboldt, managing director of Amsterdam-based UnifiedRoot.

UnifiedRoot offers practically unlimited numbers of suffixes, unlike the short list of suffixes currently in use. Its offer is different from other "alternative root" providers such as New.net which offers to register names in front of a small range of new suffixes, such as .club and .law.

"We've already had thousands of registrations in a single day," said Seeboldt after the official opening of his 100-strong company which has installed 13 Internet domain name system (DNS) root servers on four continents.
