The Sunrise launch of these extensions has been a highly anticipated milestone for Radix, a company that has spent considerable time preparing for the acquisition and launch of its new TLDs.Radix is especially excited to launch .website, which stands as the flagship extension of the program because it offers the firstavailable true generic option to .com. As such, .website is both a mass market TLD and an extension projected to provide high conversion rates for partner registrars.
“The launch of new domain extensions gives individuals, businesses and organizations a great new way to create a personalized online experience,”
To prepare for the launch of .website, .press and .host, Radix initiated strong marketing campaigns across different media to ensure strong public interest -another incentive for domain registrars partnering with Radix.
Strong domain registrars like GoDaddy, 1&1, Tucows and United Domains provide an important foundation for the success of Radix, which is why Radix works to support its registrar partners and ensure thepartnership sign-up process is stress-free.
“Radix has been maintaining their registrar-focussed outlook since the time we’ve started discussions last year. And from what we’ve seen so far, they’re definitely on track!” said David Woroch, Executive Vice President Wholesale of Tucows.
