CentralNic Group PLC (LON:CNIC) said it has been awarded a significant project by Jisc, a UK non-profit that supports higher and further education and research, to support critical UK domain infrastructure.

The domain name and web services specialist said the project will run for a minimum of three years and will see the installation of its registry software and the global management of some of the UK’s most critical domain extensions including ‘.gov.uk’, ‘.gov.scot’, ‘.gov.wales’ and ‘.llyw.cymru’ under the administration of Jisc.

“We selected CentralNic to provide the software that supports our domain name infrastructure because of its excellent technical capability and also because of its impressive track-record. Having operated for more than 20 years, CentralNic’s software platform already supports more than 20 million domain names and hosts nearly 50% of all new-style domain names globally. This proven stability and CentralNic’s clear understanding of our requirements made it the obvious choice for technology partner”, Steve Kennet, Jisc’s executive director of e-infrastructure, said in a statement.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded this project by Jisc. CentralNic’s registry software is the most sophisticated solution for domain registry management. This project win is doubly exciting for CentralNic.  As a UK-headquartered company, we are proud to be supplying the software platform that supports the Janet Network, which is a crucial to UK education and research”, added Gavin Brown, head of CentralNic’s registry services division.
