Introducing XNS: private label registrar

XNS is a private label registrar. That requires some explanation. XNS is not a regular registrar where you can register a new domain name. XNS only registers after-market domain names that are offered for sale through Dovendi.

Active in Europe

XNS manages the registration of various European ccTLD domain names. Directly through the Registry of the respective country and in collaboration with local partners. XNS is a private registrar, which means that XNS is not a registrar for the ultimate holder or user of the domain name. You can arrange this through your hosting partner, for example.

Who does what

When registering a new domain name or renewing an existing one, various parties are involved. In all cases, these are the registry, registrar, and registrant. When purchasing an existing domain name, you will also have to deal with the party offering the domain name for sale, such as through a marketplace or directly from a domainer or broker. This can be the registrant, but not always.
