Realtime Register was founded in 2003, in the city of Zwolle in the Netherlands. After years of being part of a family of companies in hosting and cloud services, Realtime Register became a fully independent wholesale registrar as of late 2018. The company's focus is purely on reselling domains, domain security products, web security products and software licenses through its resellers and partners and growing their customer base. Unlike many other registrars, Realtime Register chooses not to sell to end users, and therefore does not compete with its own resellers.
The idea for Realtime Register was born when the need arose for a platform that could enable real-time registrations of domain names and a uniform way of registering all available TLDs. It needed to manage a rapidly growing number of domain names, a growing list of registry accreditations and ever-changing rules and regulations. Also … it should use latest technologies and programming tools, and the registrar should not compete with our own business.
Looking at the available solutions on the market, we quickly realized none could meet these requirements. So, what happens if you think you can do it better yourself? … work started on a platform of our own. Fast forward to 2022 and Realtime Register is now active worldwide in over 100 countries with over 1,000 active resellers, managing several million domain names and thousands of add-on products and licenses.
Domains under Management
Realtime Register’s culture is, like all companies, a reflection of its people. And we’re proud of our people. Most have been around for years, some since the very start. This means we’ve built up a large pool of expertise. Becoming and staying accredited at over 150 registries, we’ve built up close relationships with the registries. We know how they work, how they think, and how they can support us to help our customers to succeed.
We can be an odd bunch sometimes. Before we moved to our new office, tradition meant hanging a fake white Christmas tree upside down from the ceiling. Why? Because we could, of course. We had our ‘nerf-gun-fight-at-the-office’ phase. Nobody got hurt (badly), but these days we tend to stick with Fifa on our PS4, or a game of table soccer (or foosball). Second best at our very first SIDN table soccer tournament is still something we’re proud of. And we were voted best dressed at a conference while wearing shiny white and orange suits with orange sneakers. Fashion sense be damned, we looked awesome. You can still find us at most ICANN events, conferences like CloudFest and registry get-togethers, but these days we leave the shiny suits at home.
All kidding aside, even though we play hard, we also work hard. And we are very good at what we do. We’ve been working with thousands of hosting companies from all over the world, and we used to be part of a hosting company ourselves. We know what these companies need to succeed, and that is what we develop. Because of that we repeatedly get requests to speak at conferences. And we’re especially proud when other developers compliment us on what we have built.
We are a domain specialist. We are driven, no-nonsense and focused on results. We make the difference in domain management. We are Realtime Register.
