Who are CentralNic Group

In 2018, CentralNic celebrated 22 years as a leading member in the domain industry. CentralNic began by using its own unique portfolio of domain names including UK.COM and EU.COM to sell third-level domain names such as AVON.UK.COM. Since its establishment, CentralNic has built up an unparalleled global distribution network of over 1,500 businesses authorised to retail the CentralNic managed portfolio. This representing well over 50 per cent of the global retail market. Over the years, CentralNic has expanded its operations to acquire, support and manage on behalf of others many other top level domain extensions (including .XYZ, .LA and .PW). It offers these to its global distribution network and shares the revenues received.

During 2011 and 2012, CentralNic embarked on a number of growth strategies, including winning new gTLD and ccTLD clients. CentralNic secured contracts with clients applying for 60 new domain endings to provide registry, distribution, marketing and policy and abuse management services.

In 2013, CentralNic became an AIM listed company (LON:CNIC) and, later that same year purchased the rights to the DomiNIC domain management platform which is used by Telcos and large corporations to manage portfolios of domain names. In 2014, CentralNic acquired Internet.bs, a Top 20 global domain name registrar with customers in nearly 200 countries. Also in 2014, CentralNic took a minority stake in Accent Media the owner of the new domain name extension .TICKETS. In 2015, CentralNic continued to execute on its acquisition strategy with dnsXperts, a German software development company specialising in domain name management platforms for Telcos and large corporations.

2016 proved to be a transformational year for CentralNic. Early in 2016, CentralNic announced the acquisition of Instra Group, a large, Australian based ICANN accredited registrar and supplier of associated services to individuals and corporations.

In December 2017, CentralNic completed its purchase of SK-NIC, the domain name registry and owner of the Slovakian domain extension .SK. CentralNic continues to expand its operations, through a combination of organic growth and through acquisitions to encompass corporate domain management, and distribution to individuals, companies, resellers and domain investors.
