Architelos Announces Flat Rate NameSentry℠ Pricing For New gTLDs

LEESBURG, Va., May 6, 2014—Architelos, Inc., the leading provider of automated domain name abuse detection and mitigation services, announced a flat rate pricing for its NameSentry automated abuse detection and mitigation service targeted at new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). New gTLD operators will now be able to sign up for NameSentry Basic or NameSentry Enterprise service and pay a flat rate regardless of their domain name registration volumes. Architelos’ pioneering NameSentry service enables new gTLDs to not only comply with regulatory requirements for managing security threats such as domain name abuse, but also to build and maintain a safe and reputable namespace, with low commitment and low overhead.

“New gTLDs in the first year of launch want the certainty of knowing what their domain abuse mitigation and compliance costs would be, regardless of how much they grow”, said Alexa Raad, CEO of Architelos. “Introducing an easy to understand flat rate pricing structure for new gTLDs helps them manage costs while enjoying the upside of their growth,” she added. To comply with regulatory requirements and to ensure a safe namespace, new gTLDs can either choose a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) approach by investing in data, systems and personnel, or they can choose to outsource. A DIY option requires upfront and long-term investment in data, personnel and development, as well as an established expertise in domain name abuse mitigation. While there may be other outsource options, Architelos is the only independent, 3rd party provider, and NameSentry the leading service already adopted and in use by existing and new gTLDs.

Architelos’ market leading NameSentry service aggregates data from multiple third party malware, spam and phishing providers, to get the most real-time and comprehensive view. The service then layers investigative tools to quickly pinpoint abusive sites and bad actors, and employs automated workflows to shut down threats. Under the new promotional plan for new gTLDs, monthly subscriptions prices range from $389 for the Basic service to $689 for the Enterprise version. More info is available on the Architelos website.
