Tucows adds registry platform technology and veteran talent from UNR Corp.

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2021 /CNW/ - Today Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX) (TSX: TC), the world's largest wholesale domain registrar, announced that it has purchased UNR Corp.'s registry platform service. This newly added platform technology will complement Tucows' existing reseller and retail domain services.

In addition to acquiring UNR's registry platform service, Tucows will add 10 veteran industry experts to the company. With over 150 years of combined experience, these expert engineers and business leaders will be vital additions to Tucows' expanding team.

"A critical piece of this deal with UNR is the ability to welcome their technical team to Tucows," said David Woroch, Executive Vice President at Tucows. "With experience spanning over two decades, they are a very strong team with deep competency in the domain name industry. They have built and operated multiple domain and DNS platforms, and we intend to leverage and integrate their expertise across all of our domain business."

"While I am slowly getting out of the industry, it's important to me to know that my businesses are being left in the best hands," said Frank Schilling, CEO and founder of UNR Corp. "Over the past 20 years it's been an honour to work with Tucows and I'm thrilled to see our registry platform and technical team join their company."

This asset agreement was signed and is effective as of October 1, 2021, with certain ICANN approvals expected in the normal course of business.

About UNR Corp.
UNR was founded in 2012 by Internet pioneer Frank Schilling who wanted to help every company succeed by marketing products and services with the right domain name. UNR's innovative and holistic approach to the domain industry led to the in-house development of one of the most advanced Registry platforms. The platform was key to the growth of the company's own portfolio of over 20 Top Level Domains. After a successful decade, Schilling decided to move the industry forward for the next generation of participants by setting up a one-of-a-kind auction event where the TLDs changed hands, and continue to grow and innovate. Going forward, UNR will use its marketing and policy experience to provide bespoke consultancy services to existing and future TLDs.
