In January 2017, the KeyDrive S.A. acquired OpenRegistry S.A from the NCC Group. As a result of the merger, the KeyDrive members OpenRegistry and KSregistry together form the market leader for registry backend services in the field of .brand top level domains in Europe. The KSregistry GmbH located in St. Ingbert, Germany, is a subsidiary of Key-Systems GmbH, one of the founding members of the KeyDrive holding.
The OpenRegistry S.A. strengthens the registry expertise within the KeyDrive holding and builds the basis to offer even more customized registry solutions to the operators of generic top level domains and country-code domain extension in the future.
The consolidation of the registry systems by KSregistry and OpenRegistry generates synergies and strengthens the registry business area of the KeyDrive holding. KSregistry and OpenRegistry together are responsible for the backend of 36 top level domains and two second level extensions.
KSregistry is the technical backend provider for generally available generic top level domains such as .saarland, .desi and .cam, as well as for brand TLDs like .bmw, .mini, .spiegel, .dvag, .vermögensberatung and .tui. Among the top level domains operated with the OpenRegistry system are .dhl, .lidl, .adac, .frl, .co.nl and .sx.OpenRegistry S.A.
