HostGator Partners with LogicBoxes for its new Registrar

November 10th, 2010 Comments off

DirectI’s LogicBoxes unit announced today that that they are going to power HostGator’s new registrar. HostGator has over 7,000 servers under management and is planning to launch their registrar in 2011. They have been accredited under the name Launchpad.

“The LogicBoxes Registrar Automation Platform allowed us to avoid having to ‘Reinvent the wheel’, so to speak,” said Brent Oxley, Founder & Chairman of Hostgator. We realized that we’d have far greater ROI on our development resources by engaging them in perfecting our core products, viz. Hosting, rather than having them build Registry connections and manage all of its related tasks.”

“Our Platform represents a single point of Integration to over 50 popular TLDs across the internet, so companies like HostGator can effectively use the platform to go live as their own Registrar within a few weeks. And as we constantly add new TLDs, features to handle new ICANN and Registry policies, etc. to the platform, HostGator’s one-time integration effort is enough to always keep them on top of the ever-changing marketplace,” said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO & Founder of LogicBoxes.

HostGator partners with LogicBoxes to power its Registrar

LogicBoxes announced today that HostGator, one of the world’s leading Hosters, will be using its Registrar back-end to launch their long awaited registrar offering.

This is another example of what is now becoming a growing trend of Hosters becoming Registrars. LogicBoxes, through its unique offering, has been a key facilitator in allowing web hosting companies to claim the many benefits of becoming a registrar, whilst avoiding the corresponding increase in regulatory and technical hassles.

HostGator’s transition from reseller to Registrar is expected to happen by early 2011. They have also confirmed that the migration, which is being handled in consultation with LogicBoxes, will be completely seamless, with zero impact on their existing customers and resellers.

This move will provide Hostgator greater control over their domain name operations, strengthen their brand, and afford them better pricing on domain name registrations.

“This is a Win-Win collaboration – HostGator is an important player in the industry and we’re proud to have them onboard. There is a lot of synergy between both companies and we see this as a long-term partnership between both sides,” concluded Turakhia.
