101Domain is rolling out new services and features while approaching the one-year anniversary since being acquired by Afilias plc in September 2015.
First, they have updated their terms & conditions and are now fully operational under the new corporate name, 101domain GRS Limited. Their ICANN accreditation now lists them under 101domain GRS Limited.
They have strengthened their privacy and data policies to provide more protection of client information and have done some housekeeping to reflect their re-organization.
Here are some of the new services and features:

We don’t require a renewal and it’s completely free.
