LogicBoxes targets ICANN Accreditation Program to Domainers

by Chad Kettner in Categories: Up to the Minute

LogicBoxes, a software development and consulting company specializing in domaining, will launch an consulting program for large portfolio owners at the Traffic Conference in New York. The “Domainer Accreditation Program” will educate domainers of the many risk mitigation benefits that an ICANN Accreditation program can offer them while also helping them obtain and manage their own ICANN Accredited Registrar.

“We’ve recently seen a surge of enquiries for our ICANN Accreditation Consultancy services from large domainers”, said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO of LogicBoxes. “There are several compelling reasons why domainers look at obtaining an ICANN Accreditation. Apart from the benefit of eliminating the ‘middle man’ (the Registrar) between them and their portfolios, the accreditation also provides domainers with an unbeatable level of flexibility to portfolio management and even opens up newer profit centers for them.”

The Domainer Accreditation Program is geared to ensure a “red carpet treatment” which includes a dedicated account manger, compliance assistance, technical consulting, as well as a complete registrar software and is an extension of the previous accreditation consulting services.

If they force domainers to use the horrid user interface that answerable.com uses, I’d rather hammer rusty nails into my penis than use their service.

@Drew: Allow us to save you the trouble :) I’d like to inform you that The Domainers Accreditation Program comes with a backend Registry Connectivity Software. There are no compulsions on the interface to be used.

In fact, since our interfaces are designed for web hosting providers and domain registration companies – we recommend that Domainers build their own interfaces to better suit their requirements. We’ll be guiding Domainers to assist them with building a customized interface, which is synced with our Registry Connectivity Software – to save them the trouble of reinventing the wheel.

Feel free to explore our micro-site for more information on the program.

@LogicBoxes: So the accreditation service is directly bundled your hosted solution that is similar to answerable.com and manage.snapnames.com?

@Frank Michlick: The system that you see at answerable.com and manage.snapnames.com does connect to RegistryExchange (our Registry Connectivity Software) in the backend. RegistryExchange is a single-point integration to all gTLDs as well as several ccTLDs and is a separate component from our control panel and BLL . RegistryExchange comes bundled with the service to ensure that while Domainers create their own personalized solution – they don’t have to invest in building/maintaining the various registry, ensuring compliance etc. – which is what we meant when we said that they’d be Reinventing the wheel.

@LogicBoxes: Thanks for the explanation. When you’re saying “Compliance”, does your service then also directly handle disputes, or are you referring to technical compliance, i.e. RDE implementation, WDRP messaging and audit etc.

@Frank Michlick: The service doesn’t handle disputes directly. Compliance refers to RDE, ICANN and Registry Audits and surveys and whois related compliance.

Also, having been in the industry since several years now, our compliance team is in a position to guide Domainers on best practices and policies needed to handle domain disputes effectively.
