Beginning July 1st, 2019, thousands of previously reserved second-level .UK domains were released for general registration. We were excited to get on board and be one of the select registrars to offer this unique .UK RoR backorder service. We immediately got to work finding the best ways to ensure that we were successful in registering as many .UK backorders as possible for all of our customers and partners.

Hello, my name is Sydney, and I'm a HEXOnerd, but I didn't spend four years in university studying computer science or software engineering; HEXONET decided to take a chance on me as a bootcamp grad. In bootcamp we learned how to code a brand new website from scratch; now I was in trouble, because I was asked only to re-code one page from it's original jQuery into React.
I was recently speaking with a freelancer friend and discussing the boom we're seeing in shared office space in and around our Vancouver, Canada office region. This is often a hot topic in any city I visit and decided to dive a little deeper on the subject. I began to think how the domain industry can, or is, participating in this space and it got me considering how nTLDs can encourage the efforts of freelancers and co-working spaces. .WORK seemed like an obvious choice to support freelancers and co-working spaces so I thought I would reach out to Christa Taylor, the Chief Marketing Officer of MMX Registry and learn about what they're seeing in the market.
In 2018, we invested time in connecting with our local neighbours and customers, in Vancouver and Germany, to learn more about our customers and understand their domain needs. One of our big learnings was how well the design community connected with HEXONET, and were interested in domains and internet security. For this reason, and that the .DESIGN team is superb to work with, HEXONET partnered with .DESIGN to sponsor multiple events where we connected attendees with free .DESIGN domains.
When I think of legacy TLDs, I consider .ORG to be a leader in having helped set the stage for instilling a deeper meaning to URLs. In a sense, before we were given hundreds of options, .ORG was the first to add a categorical communication to a website address – it tells a story. Knowing that the market is now crowded with options, I began wondering how a legacy TLD, such as .ORG, defines and positions itself to stay top of mind with today’s internet users.
