Press Release | Domain Registration Accreditation | .CO | HEXONET

One of the first of a select few companies to gain accreditation by the rapidly expanding .CO domain registry

Vancouver, Canada July 14, 2011 -- HEXONET ( is ecstatic to announce today that through its subsidiary, 1API GmbH, the company has been selected as one of the new exclusive registrars for the .CO domain registry. In fact, HEXONET is one of the first to be chosen and also one of the first of the new registrars to be officially accredited. This accreditation will serve to meet the growing demand for .CO domain registrations from HEXONET’s thousands of domain resellers.

Robert Birkner, Chief Strategy Officer for HEXONET, expressed his enthusiasm over the accreditation by saying, “In just over a year, the .CO registry has shaken the domain industry to its core and has now become one of the most successful global TLD launches in history. Our own resellers and customers confirm the exploding demand for .CO domains and this is why we desired our own direct accreditation with the .CO registry. HEXONET is happy to be working with the remarkable and visionary .CO team and we look forward to contributing to the overall growth of .CO through our global reseller network.”

Both companies are known for building strong relationships throughout the domain industry, so a .CO accreditation is a natural fit for both organizations.

We are pleased to accredit this experienced and established registrar, and its broad, diverse network of global resellers.”
