Uniregistry is Expanding

10

According to a news report on a Grand Cayman-based local television station, Uniregistry is expanding its physical footprint. Uniregistry is the company founded and funded by Frank Schilling, and it applied for 54 gTLDs.

The report focused on the closure of a popular Brazilian churrascaria-style restaurant called Prime, and it said that the restaurant’s next door neighbor, Uniregistry, will be taking over the space.

I think it says something that Uniregistry is expanding well before gTLDs are awarded and available for public purchase. Whether the company has already overgrown its current office space or if it is ramping up to bring on additional employees and add equipment, it’s great to see expansion in the domain space.

Thanks to Bret for sharing the news.

  1. Move is most likely a result of something domainers know better than anyone else. Secure the space before someone else locks it up for years.

    I rented the apartment next to mine in Bali for thr same reason as soon as it became available.

    • gTLD is the industry term and “domain names” is the marketing term.

      Moms and pops will be buying a domain name, not a gTLD. Just have a look around and see how .CO and .ME are marketed. Go Daddy isn’t selling them as ccTLDs to the masses, they are selling them as “domain names.”

      BTW, I sold gTLDBroker.com for $300 last week and was very happy to get that.

  2. Businesses and industries need names too! Congrats on the sale. I would have taken Rick S. advice an not sell out so cheap. Buyer sets the price seller sets the value as Rick says.
