Domain.com and Directi, part of Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), and global leaders in domain names, today announce a partnership kicking off at ICANN 50 to empower global small businesses with integrated, in-language tools to simplify creating a successful web presence.
Understanding that an online presence is critical to small business success no matter the language or corner of the world, Domain.com is working with domain platform technology provider Directi to extend its international reach and enhance the experience of its global customer base.
Domain.com plans to leverage Directi’s technology to deploy an intuitive platform that will help service its global non-English speaking customers by offering a fully integrated in-language experience with localized account management, currency options, and support.
As part of the Endurance International Group, Domain.com and Directi form the foundation for the enormous global reach of Endurance’s domain business, which has over 17 million domains under management.
“The ICANN 50 conference is the perfect forum to announce our commitment to helping small businesses worldwide,” said Brian Unruh, General Manager for Domain.com. This partnership extends our Domain.com mantra of making it simple and affordable to find a domain name and create a successful web presence.”
Endurance’s brand portfolio, which includes web hosting leaders HostGator, Bluehost, and iPage, serves over 3.6 million subscribers worldwide.
“Domain.com and Directi are working together to be the platform of choice for local businesses and entrepreneurs that want to take advantage of the power and promise of the web,” added Unruh.
The landmark ICANN 50 event is being held in London from June 22-26 and is one of the last ICANN events before the U.S. relinquishes control of the organization, and the multi-stakeholder model is introduced in 2015.
