Obtaining ICANN accreditation
We are glad to announce that on June 17, 2015 the Hosting Ukraine company became an ICANN accredited registrar.
In order to register internationaldomain namesin zones such as .com, .net, .org, .name and others, you must be accredited by the international organization ICANN. Without this accreditation, domain zone registries do not sign contracts with registrars. The purpose of accreditation is to allow only responsible companies to register domain names that are financially and technically ready for this, as well as have extensive experience as a domain name registrar and an impeccable reputation.
Obtaining ICANN accreditation is a rather lengthy and laborious process. To obtain accreditation, a registrar must step by step take steps to undergo various audits, software testing, concluding contracts, business insurance, etc. An international accrediting body sets out high criteria and standards that a future registrar must meet.
To date, more than 100 registrars are officially registered in Ukraine, providing services for the registration of Ukrainian domains. Hosting Ukraine is one of three companies in Ukraine that received ICANN accreditation and now has the ability to register international domains without intermediaries.
As for international zones, at the moment registration of domains com, net, org, info, biz, name, tv, cc, as well as in New gTLD zones (.club, .life, .audio, etc.) directly through our company. This list will be expanded in the future.
International domain names that were previously registered with our company with the participation of partners (this interaction was transparent for customers) can now be transferred to us for direct service. In this regard, we have introduced a special promotion for transferring domains under management to the registrar Hosting Ukraine LLC: when issuing an invoice for renewing an international domain, you can get a 10% discount. To do this, you need to agree with the rules of the promotion and go through several steps to receive this pleasant bonus.
We would like to draw your attention: you can get a discount only when renewing domains com, net, org, info, biz, name, tv, cc, New gTLD (.club, .life, .audio, etc.), which were previously on servicing our partners. This must be done no later than 1 day before the expiration of the domain, subject to receipt of payment before the expiration of the name registration period. Therefore, we recommend that you renew your domains in advance.
If, when creating an invoice for renewing an international domain, you are not offered to receive a 10% discount, then the domain is already in our direct service, or you are trying to renew your name too late.
