BRS Media, a diverse and growing media e-commerce firm that assists traditional and interactive media companies build and brand on the power of the Internet, today announced it has launched an Expression of Interest (EOI) program for new Top-Level-Domain .RADIO.
The EOI (Expression of Interest) program is a free of charge, non-binding pre-registration platform for New Top-Level Domains. BRS Media has furthered its 10+ year partnership with HEXONET Global, a leading developer and service provider of reseller technologies for the domain industry, by integrating with HEXONET’s popular EOI (expression of interest) system.
“We look forward to moving ahead into the next phase of dotRadio and are thrilled about the opportunity to launch an Expression of Interest program for the new .RADIO top-level domain“, remarked George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media Inc., “Our depth of experience and understanding in the market demonstrates our commitment to guide the .RADIO Expression of Interest program in a professional, reliable and all-inclusive way. We are also pleased to be working with HEXONET on this project, who have a long history of industry leading domain systems and platforms, including pre-registration systems.”
“BRS Media is one of the rare media companies that have the business and technical savvy to leverage new technologies to fully utilize the power of the Internet for business branding”, said Robert Birkner, HEXONET’s CSO. “For over a decade, we’ve witnessed BRS Media not only use HEXONET systems, but other key technologies from other companies, to deliver very innovative branding services. And now with the EOI service, BRS allows anyone or any business to earmark the newTLDs with branding significance early in the newTLD era.”
BRS Media pioneered the ‘multimedia’ domain space since launching the .FM & .AM Top Level Domains in 1998. For 15 years, dotFM & dotAM have provided the ‘On-Air and Online’ Industry a professional, reliable, secure and stable ‘Industry Specific’ domain extension, while at the same time encouraging innovation, openness and creativity in the unparalleled multimedia namespace. In 2009, BRS Media embarked on a new endeavor to operate, manage and market the .RADIO Top Level Domain. We envision a .RADIO TLD experience that is professional, reliable and all-inclusive; with a deep history of encouraging innovation and openness in the domain space, not bureaucratically backwards. The plan to launch “.RADIO” follows ICANN’s decision to expand the domain space beyond the standard .com, .net, and .org extensions.
Since 1999, HEXONET has been a leading developer and service provider of reseller technologies for the domain industry, including domain backordering. Thousands of resellers, startups and service providers from across the world trust HEXONET as their domain platform provider. And today, HEXONET manages over a million domains for its clients. 1API GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of HEXONET.
