Diamond hands: Frank Schilling exits the domain industry

Domain investor and entrepreneur, Frank Schilling, has exited the domain industry officially, after more than two decades in the game.

Frank Schilling built a virtual empire consisting of an impressive domain portfolio, several management companies, a registrar and a registry. That last piece of the puzzle has now been reported as sold, with Tucows being the buyer of Uni Naming & Registry (UNR) and its remaining staff.

“While I am slowly getting out of the industry, it’s important to me to know that my businesses are being left in the best hands,” said Frank Schilling, CEO and founder of UNR Corp.

“Over the past 20 years it’s been an honor to work with Tucows and I’m thrilled to see our registry platform and technical team join their company.”

Tucows will now dabble in registry matters after acquiring the UNR registry platform; the deal is effective today and it’s expected to be approved by ICANN.

Congratulations, Frank! 😀
