Q&A

Describe what your company does why you chose this focus and who benefits from the work that you do?
Radix is one of the world’s leading nTLD portfolio registries with over 3 million domains under its management. Through several years of active bidding, Radix has won the global and exclusive rights to 9 new internet domain extensions that include .ONLINE, .STORE, .TECH, .WEBSITE, .SPACE, .PRESS, .SITE, .HOST, and .FUN; as well as 1 re-purposed ccTLD, .PW. Radix’s annual revenue for the calendar year 2017 was over $12 million. 

Our key customers are startups, established businesses and SMEs. Radix has some of the most fitting TLDs for cutting-edge new businesses. In fact, startups on our TLDs have received over $400 million in VC funding in the last year.

What factors have contributed to your company's growth and success to date How do you see these elements evolving in the future?
There are three main factors that have contributed to our growth and success:

  • Top Quality TLDs—Our selection of TLDs is backed by an extensive research. As a result, we chose only those TLDs that we were convinced had the potential to make a global impact. We are looking out to expand our TLD portfolio by acquiring other TLDs that fit into our quality criteria. 
  • Top Quality Team—Our team is a great blend of industry veterans and new-blood from top B-schools. Each member of our team of 50 is working in unison to boost our company’s growth year-on-year. 
  • Long-Term View—Our philosophy of not being tied to the expectations of a quick return is immensely liberating. We invest in areas which give us long-term sustainable growth.

What can attendees expect to see from your company at NamesCon Global?
One of the most amazing partnerships for us this year is with the NamesCon App (namescon.tech). Apart from that, we have planned some fun giveaways at our booth. We are excited about the on-ground engagements that we have in-store for our booth visitors at NamesCon.  On 29th, Karn Jajoo from our team will be on the panel for a discussion on nTLD Case Studies: Rising Above the Noise.

He will be discussing how nTLDs are creating value for businesses the world over. On 31st, I will be part of the Closing Keynote Roundtable along with some of the most experienced folks from the domain industry.  We are also looking forward to meeting all of our registrar partners and having strategic discussions with brokers as well as other key stakeholders in the premium domains ecosystem.
