Internet domain registry specialist, Minds and Machines to create 25 jobs in Dublin

30th October, 2013

Dublin is set to become a major hub for internet traffic thanks to the decision of leading registry services provider, Minds + Machines, to establish its core technical operations in the city, creating initially up to 25 jobs.

Antony Van Couvering, CEO of Minds + Machines’ parent company Top Level Domain Holdings Limited (TLDH), commented: “Before the end of the year, people should begin to see the first of over 1000 new top level domains  appear on the web, providing choice and direction never before available. For the first time consumers, businesses and organisations will be able to choose names within domains that are specifically relevant to their area of interest. It marks a transformational moment in the Internet’s development and Minds + Machines in Dublin will be a major player in this new environment.”

Following last year’s application process, London listed TLDH emerged as the fourth largest applicant for new generic top level domains (gTLDs) behind Google, Amazon and Donuts with new gTLDs that it secures to be run through its wholly owned registry business, Minds + Machines.

New domains that Minds + Machines will be launching include .bayern, .miami, .beer, .bible, .london, .kiwi, and .horse.

In total, Mind + Machines through TLDH, presently has interests in 88 applications of which 25 are uncontested meaning they can move forward through the final stages of the ICANN approval process ahead of launch. TLDH is likewise aiming to secure the sole application status for other key names for which it has applied through a series of auctions between contesting applicants in the coming weeks.

Brian Seidman, Managing Director of Minds + Machines Limited in Ireland, added;
“Dublin provides us with access to an incredibly skilled labour force and full access to the European market, allowing Minds + Machines to support key gTLD initiatives on the Continent. We look forward to growing our registry service provider operations in Ireland.”
