TRBR oversees successful transition of .vu country code Top-Level Domain to Neustar

PORT VILA, Vanuatu – The Office of the Vanuatu Telecommunications, Radiocommunications and Broadcasting Regulator (TRBR) today announced the successful transition of Vanuatu’s .vu country code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD) to Neustar’s registry platform.

Neustar was selected to be the Registry Operator for the .vu ccTLD in August 2019 following a highly competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) process designed to identify the provider that would be best positioned to carry the namespace forward. With extensive experience of registry transitions and operations both large and small, Neustar Vanuatu Limited (Neustar) is poised to bring further growth, increased performance and security to the .vu domain.

TRBR has been working with Neustar for the last few months to ensure a smooth transition, including technical preparations and collaboration with industry and business stakeholders. Following these preparations, and a successful DNS migration, the .vu namespace was transitioned to Neustar’s industry leading registry platform. The Regulator, Mr. Brian Winji said that Neustar’s capabilities and experience are well suited to support the growth and promotion of .vu. “It was important for us to partner with a company who has a demonstrated history of professionalism, innovation, and reliability. Neustar has a strong reputation in the domain name registry space with extensive ccTLD experience. Their capabilities are well suited to taking the .vu namespace forward.”

Neustar is a global information services company with the largest DNS, DDoS mitigation and threat intelligence capabilities in the industry. In addition to .vu, Neustar provides Registry services for .us, .in, .co, .nyc and .biz TLDs, as well as nearly 250 other TLDs for countries, cities, businesses and the world’s leading brands. The .vu namespace is now backed by Neustar’s award-winning infrastructure, team and experience, which is always evolving with continuous investment and product innovation. [ENDS]
