Uniregistry Partners With Online Website Builder ‘The Grid’

Uniregistry announced today its partnership with The Grid, bringing Uniregistry’s portfolio of domain names to an online website builder.

Uniregistry is an ICANN-accredited domain name services company, providing tools for purchasing, managing and monetizing domain names.

“We built the industry’s best tools for domain name management, to make people’s lives simpler,” said Frank Schilling, Managing Director of Uniregistry. “We help domain name owners get things done in the best possible way.”

The Grid allows its users to build a website in minutes, from either a mobile device or desktop computer. Updating websites built with The Grid can be as simple as posting a picture or new content.

Under a new five-year agreement, Uniregistry is the exclusive partner for providing users of The Grid with custom domain names. Registering and configuring a domain name for a website created with The Grid can be completed using The Grid’s video tutorial (http://help.thegrid.io/article/244-v2-add-a-custom-domain).

“The Grid was conceived with the guiding principle that the Internet is the best way for people to express themselves, and having a unique domain name is part of the identity,” said Dan Tocchini, Founder and CEO of The Grid.

“We’re excited that Grid users who sign-up for Pro Membership will be able to receive a free domain name from our unique collection of domain extensions, like .link and .help, as well as getting the best rates available on all other custom domain names, including .com,” according to Frank Schilling.

In the coming months, Uniregistry will be making The Grid available to its users as well, allowing Uniregistry’s domain customers to build websites for their domains as easily as they manage their domain names.

  1. Hello Konstantinos,

    Uniregistries Non-Unified Outsourcing to Grid, shows a glaring disconnect Marketing Strategy. Go-daddy’s Centralized Unified Marketing Model will eat Uniregistries Lunch. JAS 9/20/16

  2. I like the direction Uniregistry is headed with providing quick domain development tools, however, I have to agree that outsourcing may be the wrong move. This should have been an insourced addition of tools for better retention.

    • Sometimes you can’t do everything. Uniregistry needs to grow first and then maybe they can do everything in house.

    • Godaddy brings alot to the table, small businesses want one stop shopping, hard to compete, domainers are cheap bastards, bare skeleton services.

      I think Frank, and his buddies should just buy rightside, and integrate everything under name.com brand, but update the platform.

  3. Is it just me or is the uniregistry panel really slow, the hourglass just keeps on circling on everything being done.

    I actually like the DNS platform over the uni market login thru uniregistry for answering inquiries.

    Wonder if others are having such issues?

  4. Sounds like a great integration. To find out more I went to TheGrid.com and it wasn’t there. Then I tried TheGrid.link and again it wasn’t there..It’s hard to build a brand called “The Grid” and not have the .com, otherwise you must always include the extension when the brand is named.
