A website builder
Establish in 2013, Netistrar was founded by four domain name industry experts and the software, security and research company Oxford Information Labs.
At that time, the domain name industry was undergoing a transformation from a small number of Top Level Domains on the market (such as .com) to the new gTLD environment - with more than 1,000 new domain endings to choose from.
At the heart of Netistrar, is a world-class software development team, who have built software and undertaken data-driven research for the domain name industry, including ICANN, EURid and Verisign, and for central and local government, the BBC, insurance, charity, not-for-profit, retail, and education sectors. We are proud to have developed Netistrar’s software and systems from the ground up, offering our customers unique benefits and impressive features.
