Managed Web hosting provider The Planet Internet Services announced on Thursday that it had recently been accredited as a domain registrar by ICANN, the body that oversees the domain name system.
“Receiving ICANN accreditation shows that the industry knows it can expect best in class solutions from The Planet,” says Sam Fleitman, vice president of information systems for The Planet. “It extends our offerings to cover even more of customers’ end-to-end hosting needs.” The Planet is currently offering .com and .net domains for $5.99 per year and will soon offer additional top-level domains such as .org, .biz, .info and .us.
Web hosting automation software developer WebHost Automation announced on Wednesday that it had released details of the next version of the Helm control panel.
The company says Helm 4 will be officially released later this year. A live demonstration of the product will be made at HostingCon 2005 in Chicago in June. Helm 4 will include a new user interface, improved server-to-server communications, load balanced distribution, secure and optimized data transmission, cross-data-center support, unlimited users levels and a full-featured API for expanding Helm’s feature set.
Domain registrar and Web hosting provider Go Daddy announced on Tuesday that according to current statistics provided by domain industry analysis firm Name Intelligence , it had become the largest ICANN-accredited domain registrar in the world, surpassing Network Solutions.
According to Name Intelligence, Go Daddy’s status as the world’s largest registrar is based on the total number of domains under its management and applies to the .com, .net, .org, .biz and .us domain extensions. No other registrar other than Network Solutions has ever held the top position, says Jay Westerdal, CEO of Name Intelligence.
