Kirkland, Washington – July 31, 2013 – eNom, Inc. and DreamHost, today announced a strategic partnership between the two companies. As part of the agreement, DreamHost will utilize the eNom reseller platform to manage its existing domain name business and new gTLDs as they become available. Additionally, eNom will provide its clients access to the DreamHost hosting platform including virtual private servers (VPS), dedicated servers, and cloud hosting. DreamHost will remain an ICANN accredited registrar.
“Our entrepreneur, designer and developer customers are passionate about being on the cutting edge of Internet technology and trends,” said Simon Anderson, CEO of DreamHost. “The new gTLD domain name extensions launching this year, including .web, .shop, and even .ninja, are exciting opportunities to build new brands and web channels for customers and eNom enables us to deliver the whole enchilada!”
“This partnership is the organic next step for both of our businesses,” said Chris Sheridan, Vice President of Business Development for eNom. “Over the past ten years we’ve built out the industry’s best wholesale domain registrar. More than 8,800 resellers have registered 14 million domain names on this platform. This partnership is a great step toward our goal of continuing to serve our clients with hosting and cloud services up to the standards set by our domain products.”

In an effort to support this new phase, eNom will begin to promote DreamHost’s services through its retail business by October 1, 2013.
