It Always Starts With a Conversation
Little did our key leadership team know that what started as a simple conversation about the domain industry, leadership, technology opportunities, and the drive to make the internet more attainable, would bring them to today. Tens years after that original conversation, HEXONET is the trusted domain platform of choice for thousands of individuals, resellers, startups, and service providers in over 110 countries around the world. Currently, HEXONET manages over 3.8 million domains for our clients.
With offices in Homburg, Saarland Germany and Richmond, BC Canada, HEXONET remains privately owned and employs some of the best talent in the industry. We're known as leading developers of domain technologies and as the worldwide experts in domain names. Our team is focused, and continually driven to bring customers the best technological solutions, TLD offerings, customer support, and domain products to make their internet goals a reality. Whether you have one domain or tens of thousands with us, we appreciate your business.
The best part? That original conversation we mentioned, well it's never wrapped up. We continually challenge ourselves to help develop the industry, build leadership opportunities, push technology forward, and make the internet more attainable to more people.
