UniRegistry was founded by industry heavyweight Frank Shilling in 2012 and has grown quickly. Shilling is believed to own one of the largest portfolios of domain names in the world. Whereas as most of the other registrars on our Top 10 list have large teams of employees, UniRegistry is primarily operated by a small group of "domain registry experts." The company is clear in its mission: to make the process of domain buying as quick, easy and streamlined as possible.
In its effort to keep the domain-registration process simple, Uniregistry doesn't offer many of the "extras" that other registrars offer, such as hosting. However the company does provide some useful tools free of charge with your domain purchase such as a free Whois Privacy service. Uniregistry supports more than 170 domain extensions including both new and traditional gTLDs. Founder Frank Shilling has been quoted as calling Uniregistry "the most service-based and holistic approach to registry operations that the industry has ever seen" – and so far that assessment seems accurate.
