Cloudflare gets into registrar business with wholesale domains and free privacySean Gallagher / Ars Technica - 2 years ago
  • Cloudflare, the content delivery network and website security provider, has increasingly been pushing into businesses that intersect with its core missions.
  • While Cloudflare had already been handling domain registration through the company’s Enterprise Registrar service, that service was intended for some of Cloudflare’s high-end customers who wanted extra levels of security for their domain names.
  • Prince said that he was motivated to take the company into the registrar business because of Cloudflare’s own experience with registrars and by the perception that many registrars are in the business mostly to up-sell things that require no additional effort.
