Growing businesses and improving people’s lives with the best innovative technologies
Openprovider is an ICANN-accredited domain registrar and technology company. We were founded in 2004 in Rotterdam, Netherlands by our founder and CEO Arno Vis. Since then, we have grown to be a multicultural team of 70+ people. We work fully remotely across more than 15 different countries and 4 different continents. Flexibility, innovation and a result-oriented attitude are at the heart of our business and are what makes our people thrive.
Our story and mission
Back when our founder and CEO Arno Vis founded Openprovider, the domain registrar landscape looked quite different than it does nowadays. There was hardly any competition, so the main existing wholesalers monopolized the market and greatly overcharged their customers for their new domains.
Over 20 years as an entrepreneur had given Arno enough experience to know that he didn’t want to play that game: so he didn’t. He decided to introduce the Membership model, which centered our focus on serving our clients and building long-lasting relationships with customers. Growing with our clients is at the core of our business.
Openprovider is fully remote
During the last three years, more and more companies have chosen to go fully remote — and Openprovider is one of them. As of 2020, we have closed our offices and have converted to working fully from home. Flexibility and a result-oriented attitude are what define our remote work culture. We do not use time trackers: what matters most to us is the quality of your work.
