iwantmyname becomes part of CentralNic Group Plc

We’re proud to announce that iwantmyname is becoming a part of UK-headquartered international company CentralNic Group Plc today. CentralNic is a leading domain name industry player operating both top-level domains (TLDs) and registrars selling domain names to resellers and retail customers.

For our customers, that means everything you love about iwantmyname will stay as is for now. We will continue to strive to provide the best user experience of any domain retailer, but with the support and resources of CentralNic, the fastest-growing company in the industry, behind it.

Further down the track, we plan to add more choices of domain names and additional services, with the same user friendly customer experience. For CentralNic Group, we plan to incorporate the customer-centric innovations of iwantmyname across all retail websites.

The iwantmyname team and I will stay on to make sure we can continue our mission to bring positive change to the domain name industry and help people to start their web presence with as little hassle as possible.

I want to thank our customers for helping iwantmyname become the company it is today. Itʼs been a fun ride from starting up in a small suburb of Wellington in New Zealand to building a global company with an international team, and you made it possible.

I also would like to thank both my co-founders Lenz and Paul who are leaving the business with the acquisition. You surely will be missed, but I couldnʼt be more excited for your next adventures.

Lastly, my thanks go to all current and former iwantmyname team members. Itʼs a pleasure to keep on working with such talented folks and add some of our secret sauce into CentralNicʼs offerings.
