(The Hosting News) – The UK2 Group reached and surpassed one million registered customer domains across its numerous web hosting companies operating inside the United States and United Kingdom.
The UK2 Group is an ICANN accredited domain registrar with over 13 years’ experience retailing domain names and considered a global leader in small business and enterprise web hosting.
The 1,000,000-domain mark was attained through a steady stream of domain sales via its family of hosting brands including Resell.biz, UK2.net, WestHost, midPhase, AN Hosting, 100TB.com, VPS.NET, Another.com, and others.
“This is a significant achievement which underpins our status as a reliable, affordable and innovative web hosting company,” said Phil Male, CEO of UK2Group.
With ICANN confirming at least 2 billion Internet users active worldwide and over 1.5 billion domains registered since 1985, the UK2 Group milestone is an important barometer in measuring business activity online.
“Exceeding one million domain registrations is based on a broad and powerful range of services we offer in conjunction with a domain name purchase. These include, but are not limited to: Shared Hosting, Dedicated Servers, Colocated Servers, VPS, Cloud Servers, Content Delivery Networks and a wide range of business collaboration and website building tools,” said Jeff Hunsaker, President of US Operations for UK2 Group.
UK2 Group will also be at the forefront of offering what may be the next great gold rush in business branding: A new set of ICANN domain extensions that will allow Internet users to create their own extensions including city names like .London or company names like .Apple.
“These custom branded and generic domains names will start becoming available early next year and will especially appeal to large enterprises who seek to entrench and extend their marketing appeal,” said Mr. Hunsaker.
