Nominet has taken over back-end registry services for Microsoft’s small portfolio of dot-brand gTLDs.
The company said it’s now running .azure, .bing, .hotmail, .microsoft, .windows and .xbox TLDs, bring the total number of gTLDs on its registry platform to 74.
Microsoft had been with Verisign to date, but Verisign told us in July that it’s getting out of the dot-brand back-end business.
Almost 100 gTLDs have left Verisign this year, the vast majority landing at Identity Digital.
Nominet also took on .sky from Verisign earlier this year.
