    Hi there!

    This is the Openprovider official thread, here you will find promotions and offers available on the Openprovider platform. We want to engage with our customers and give everyone a pleasant experience. Therefore, please feel free to leave any questions, comments or just a happy word in this thread!

    About us and what we offer
    We are the reseller’s registrar that helps you grow by becoming your one-stop shop for domain management. We guarantee we will strive to offer the best domain prices in the market, thanks to our direct registry accreditations, and our frequent pricing negotiations. With our flexible and personalised membership plans, our easy to use, modern and hassle free platform that enables process automation, and an exceptional team of specialists with great expertise, we help resellers grow.

    Resellers’ membership plans - flexible and personal
    As a registrar with over 16 years of experience, we've come to know exactly how to help our resellers grow.


    • Our business model: our membership plans offer the best prices in the domain market on a very extensive list of domains at our cost-price, great deals & discounts on other products commonly included in a reseller’s domain offer.

    • We are flexible, offering different levels of membership plans for resellers of all sizes, according to the volume of their operations, and we provide a personalised service and quick support that any reseller of any size would want to rely on.
    Member’s best price - guaranteed
    Openprovider offers the best prices in the market for our members to help them grow their business. Offering the best prices means we provide the lowest possible prices & deals according to the exact size of our customer’s needs and growth ambitions.

    How can we guarantee this?

    • Automating as much as possible saves us, and you, many costs. We automate processes, tools, services and even support. We also ensure you are able to automate as easy and as much as possible yourself too, through our API, integrations and wide variety of plugins.

    • Our membership plans help you save more than six times the price of the subscription. We have customers that we pay more in Marketing Development Funds than they pay us in Membership fees.

    • We bear the costs of 178 direct registry accreditations and we don’t charge you for this. This means we guarantee that you will never pay more than our cost-price for the domain extensions we’re accredited for, and will negotiate the best prices on premium domains.

    • We strive to get the best deals & discounts with domain registries and also with our other product’s partners. We negotiate directly with registries in favor of keeping your prices as low as possible.

    Resellers grow with us
    Two of our first three resellers still are two of our most valuable resellers.

    Why? We have strived to provide the best opportunities since we started, over 16 years ago. Our in-house specialists, support engineers and commercial team have worked closely together during all these years, generating successful stories along the way.

    We share our knowledge and guide them with a strategic vision to help with any ideas or needs they might have, with the quick service & support any reseller would want to rely on.

    April showers are pouring down and so are some of our prices! Everything you need to know this month is right here.

    Openprovider members are in for a treat!
    Our commitment to seeing our members grow with us and helping them maximize their profit has led us to lower the prices of three of our extensions. The new prices will ‘go live’ on the 1st of April 2021:

    Extension Current price Price from the 1st of April
    .ae AED 120.00 AED 118.52
    .dk DKK 41.76 DKK 41.52
    .cz CZK 252.00 CZK 223.00
    Showing 1 to 3 of 3 entries
    Just log in to your account, choose a membership plan and you’ll be on the right path! Our members pay what we pay for domains and get exclusive prices and discounts all year long.

    .uk now supports transfer locks

    Nominet (registry) now supports transfer locks for any .uk domain name, including the second level domains,, and This functionality is similar to the transfer locks from other extensions like .com, but due to the nature of Nominet’s registration system the scope is slightly different.

    While for most extensions the gaining registrar initiates the transfer, a .uk domain transfer is initiated by the losing registrar instead, by changing the so-called IPS tag of the domain name to the tag of the new registrar.

    However, if a .uk domain is locked, this change can’t be made. The losing (current) registrar will first need to unlock the domain name in order to then change the IPS tag.

    There is one exception to this rule though! The domain holder, through his own online services panel on, can change the IPS tag even if the domain name has an active transfer lock. Why? Because a registrant-initiated tag change is a registry operation and not a registrar operation.

    .com prices are going up

    Verisign has announced a price increase on its .com extension, effective from the 1st of September 2021. The new price for Members will be $8.57; the new price for Tiers will range from $9.29 to $9.49 for new registrations and transfers, and from $9.49 to $15.49 for renewals.

    Please remember that during the full year 2021, all our customers can register and transfer their .com domains at Member price! Until the 1st of September, this is $8.03; from the 1st of September this price will automatically change to $8.57.

    This is the first price increase that .com has seen since 2012, when a fixed price was agreed on between Verisign and ICANN. However, last year Verisign renegotiated its contract and was allowed 4 price increases of 7% until 2024.

    As .com domains can be registered for a period of up to 10 years, you should really consider transferring or renewing your .com domains before the 1st of September 2021. Time is of the essence. Big savings are at stake!

    Hosting Infrascan has arrived!

    Internet security is very important to us and we know that secure hosting environments play a major role in making the internet a safer place. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for hosting providers to increase their infrastructure security.

    This is why we’re excited to introduce the Hosting Infrascan. A joint solution developed by SIDN and the Registrars Association (VvR), making it affordable and easy for you to scan your infrastructure and map and assess its risks.

    The Hosting Infrascan offers:

    • – independent insight into your infrastructure’s weak spots (Apache, MySQL, FTP, etc.)
    • – information to help you take the right actions and mitigate weak spots
    • – direct insight through scan results on a clear dashboard
    • – independent information reports for customers, boards, the data protection authority, etc.
    • – the possibility to import IP numbers and to enter them manually
    • – the possibility to check for IPv4 and IPv6.
    We now offer you this service for only € 50 to set it up and € 2.50 per scanned server. For each scanned server you also receive a second scan, which enables you to check how much your infrastructure security has improved after mitigating actions have been performed.

    The scan is executed and coordinated by Threadstone, SIDN’s and the Registrar Association’s cyber security partner in this project. Please mention that Openprovider is your registrar in your application.

    Ahoy sailor! A price increase has been spotted for .xyz and .dk

    The registries of .xyz and .dk have announced price increases on their extensions:

    • – .xyz prices are going up by $0.56 on the 1st of September 2021. This price change will apply to all Member and Tier prices.
    • – the Danish registry is raising the price for .dk domain names by DKK 8.00 on the 3rd of May 2021, making the new Member price DKK 49.52. All Tier prices will increase by DKK 8.00 as well.
