2 million domains managed with Openprovider
A couple of weeks ago, along with SIDN and reseller Robohost, we celebrated reaching the 6 millionth registered .nl domain and today we’re proud to announce that a new .nl domain name registration has given us another reason to celebrate.
At Openprovider we are glad to share we have reached a very important milestone in our history. On Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 we have reached 2 million domains administered with us, with the registration of dierenartsenpraktijkdekwakel.nl, through our reseller EKKSOL Digital Commerce.
Recently, EKKSOL Digital Commerce decided to consolidate all domains and products under the same provider, “I wanted all my domains and SSL certificates in one place. The membership feature made me choose Openprovider”, mentioned George Ekkelenkamp, CEO at EKKSOL Digital Commerce.
Our focus on improving the quality of our products and services has made a positive impact on increasing the number of domains managed with us, thus helping to reach this milestone this month.
We have reached this goal thanks to each and every customer who has chosen us, and to our team members for their continuous hard work and effort on achieving the objective of giving high-quality service and support while offering the best solutions to our customers.
By making it as simple and easy as possible for our customers, so they can focus on other relevant managing tasks, and by offering competitive prices on our products and services, domains at cost-price through our membership plans, great promotions, and outstanding support, we will always work towards achieving excellence and consequently, reach more milestones like this. Stay tuned for the next one!
.NL reaches 6 million registrations
Last Thursday, June 18th, 2020, the .nl domain reached the 6 million registered domain names milestone with the registration of the 6 millionth registered .nl domain by Cindy Woesthuis, entrepreneur & founder of Act in Move Training, a coaching & yoga company in Neede, Netherlands.
To celebrate this milestone, SIDN representatives, together with Openprovider, .nl registrar and Robohost, reseller company, surprised Cindy Woesthuis with cake, flowers, and champagne.
“I have been teaching yoga for over five years now. I want others to also feel what I feel with yoga. My mission flowed from that thought: bringing as many people as possible into contact with yoga. That does not mean that everyone should fully immerse themselves in teaching and science. What I want to achieve is that people experience and become acquainted with yoga. And that, based on that experience, they can conclude for themselves whether or not yoga suits them”, mentions Cindy about the goal she has in mind with her company.
Yoga has been an important part of Act in Move for years, the company of Cindy and her husband Jeroen Woesthuis. Their next step was to register a stand-alone website via the domain name deyogiclub.nl, to make this part of their company more visible. They selected this domain name to symbolize the gathering of people who practice yoga.
“Having my own website contributes to my ultimate goal. Via the website, I can radiate my mission and share music, online lessons, photos, recipes, poems, knowledge, and audio files with my target group. In this way, people are also introduced to yoga online. I also have more ideas for the website. I have contacts in Nepal, for example, because I visited the country as a co-teacher during a Yoga culture trip. I would like to sell things that people make in Nepal for them through my own site.”, Cindy concludes.
The .nl domain is the fifth largest country domain in the world, 64% of all Dutch websites are a .nl website. The Netherlands has more than 1 domain name per 2 inhabitants and approximately 850,000 new names are registered annually. In addition, .nl is also one of the safest and most successful domains in the world.
Openprovider is a .nl accredited registrar since 1997 and was the registrar of the 5-millionth registered .nl domain name, as well. Aside from .nl, Openprovider is also an accredited registrar for over 54 ccTLD and 123 gTLD and invests in connecting to new registries continuously.
The lowest prices in the domain industry, and domains at cost-price through our membership plans, a flawless & timely service & support, and the expertise accumulated throughout over 16 years in this industry are major reasons why working with Openprovider is the best choice.
