There is a list of service providers which future new gTLD applicants will need to visit when they want to submit their application. They will either need to:
- Contact them and discuss their project to learn about prices and services wanted/required to apply or;
- Build their own backend registry solution (good luck with that).
A backend registry solution provider does not necessarily offer its solution as a service for future applicants, so from the list below, I got rid of some names. For example, some old providers of certain country code Top-Level domains (existing ccTLD extensions) don't have an offer. Also, some of the new registries have their own internal solution: the many new gTLD projects from Google or Uniregistry use their own solution but are not offered to the public: such solutions won't be listed here.
- ZDNS is also offering the MIIT solution to develop a TLD for the Chinese market (China);
- Nominet (UK);
- GMO (Japan);
- Canadian Internet Registration Authority (Canada);
- Verisign (USA);
- TLD-BOX Registrydienstleistungen (Austria);
- AFNIC (France)
- China Internet Network Information Center (China);
- CORE (Switzerland);
- Knipp Medien und Kommunikation GmbH (Germany);
- Flexireg (Russia);
- SIDN (The Netherlands);
- Updated: DNS Africa Ltd (Mauritius): http://dns.business/;
- KSregistry (Germany);
- Afilias (Ireland);
- CentralNic (UK);
- Technical Center of Internet (Russia);
- Neustar (USA);
- JPRS (Japan).
