CentralNic Group Plc Acquires the Caribbean’s largest registrar, Internet.BS

News Americas Now,London, 17 June, 2014- CentralNic plc, (AIM:CNIC), the Registry Service Provider powering the sale of domain names through online retailers globally, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the business and certain of the assets of Internet.BS Corp (“Internet.BS”), registered in The Bahamas – the leading retailer of domain names in the Caribbean and one of the world’s top thirty domain name retailers (or “registrars”).

CentralNic listed on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange in September 2013 announcing its mission to enter markets in the Caribbean and Africa, both supporting local Country Code (“ccTLD”) operators with a world class registry solution, and ensuring that those Country Codes were made available to local populations through modern retail interfaces tailor-made for domestic markets across the two regions.

“The acquisition of Internet.BS’s business shows how serious we are about the Caribbean region,” said CentralNic CEO Ben Crawford. “Together with our existing registrar technology that powers retailers like buydomains.london and www.la, we now have a powerful multi- domain registrar in the Group with Internet.BS, which already serves customers in eight languages and multiple currencies, and which we can deploy to enable individuals and businesses in the Caribbean and Africa to get online.”

The news follows last year’s announcement that CentralNic has partnered with the respected Africa.com, to support its development of a pan-African domain registrar.

CentralNic’s Registry service Provider division is supporting such quality new generic TLDs as .website, .college, .press, .host,. .wiki, .bar; DotBrand TLDs such as .etisalat and .theguardian, as well as the country codes .pw and .la.
