A significant movement in the field of domain registrars: Tucows, also known under the name of its reseller branche OpenSRS, has purchased eNom, Rightside’s domain name division, for 83.5 million dollars. The agreement was reached on 20 January, and it means that 14.5 million domains and 28,000 distributors have been added to Tucows’ business.
This acquisition ranks Tucows second in the market, with 29 million domains managed, below GoDaddy, which manages 55 million domains.
Both companies have not yet disclosed what their combined strategy will be. Do you still have domains at eNom or OpenSRS? Know that Openprovider has tools for easy consolidation.

With our cost pricing policy, we aim to help you position yourself in the internet business. As a customer of Openprovider, you do not have to provide accreditation in all the domains and registries that you want to offer. Our products are at cost price – the same price you would obtain if you were accredited, but without the problems involved in having to manage so many accreditations, suppliers and invoices.
