The ICANN Accreditation of bNamed is a fact. bNamed is the first ICANN Accredited Registrar in Belgium. This accreditation is a recognition of ICANN for bNamed. Through this recognition ICANN shows that, after a full review of bNamed, they’ve decided that they bNamed is a reliable registrar who has sufficient knowledge and expertise to provide gTLDs directly.
From now on, bNamed doesn’t need to work through an intermediary anymore to offer the generic extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .tel, .jobs,… Thanks to this accreditation, bNamed now can directly offer all generic extensions, which will obviously boost our flexibility.
‘bNamed can decide what the Whois information for these general extensions will look. This is especially important for our resellers,’ says Bart Mortelmans, managing director of bNamed. ‘ Their own name will appear in the Whois, not the name of their registrar. Moreover, we will be able to decide what transfer mails will look like and we can allow transfers via both Dutch and French fax paperwork. Previously, this paperwork was only available in English as this was controlled in America. So thansk to this accreditation, we can better meet the needs and wishes of our customers,’ adds Bart Mortelmans.
Of course this accreditation also means we’ll have a nice growth possibility. ‘We are committed to offering any extension. For this we cooperate with a large network of local partners. Moreover, we have already subscribed to various registries from certain country extensions so we can offer them directly,’ says Bart Mortelmans. ‘ We’re already an official .be, .nl, .lu, .eu, .fr, .co.uk, .it, .ro and .cd agent. An ICANN Accreditation seemed the logical next step. We have questioned ourselves how we would to do this but we have decided to go through the entire process to be ICANN Accredited. And now we are! A nice extra is that we’re the first Belgian company that becomes ICANN Accredited,’ tells an enthousiastic Bart Mortelmans.
bNamed is a Belgian company specialised in registering national and international extensions. Domain names are their core business and they have 10 years of knowledge and expertise within this market. With this expertise they are capable to offer any extension. This ICANN Accreditation is a nice way to celebrate their 10th birthday!
