The British company CentralNic has announced its acquisition of SafeBrands, a French corporate registrar. CentralNic is quite a large and respected player in the domain market. The company provides a full range of services as a registry and domain registrar, and also performs the functions of a technical operator of domain zones, such as for the ccTLDs of Armenia (.AM) and Slovakia (.SK).
SafeBrands has a strong presence on the French market. The company is a corporate domain registrar, whose service is used by many of the country’s largest companies, and it also offers brand protection in the domain space. For this purpose, SafeBrands specialists have already developed several innovative technological solutions that have received various awards, according to Online Domain. For now the company operates exclusively in the domestic market, but with the acquisition of CentralNic, these technologies are expected to come on to the world stage in the near future. The transaction is worth €3.6 million.
