DENIC To Demerge Non-Member Business Areas From Parent Operations
DNS Anycast Services, Data Escrow Services and Direct Services to be pooled
in new affiliate company
Dear Sir or Madam,
The General Assembly of German ccTLD manager DENIC eG (.DE) decided on 26
April 2018 to set up a fully owned subsidiary which shall run, from a date
later this year, all complementary business lines allocated to the
Cooperative‘s non-member business and pooled in the parent enterprise so far.
However, all tasks related to the management and operation of the .DE
top-level domain shall fully remain within the sphere of responsibility of the
parent company DENIC eG.
Prime Goal: Clear Distinction Between Member and Non-Member Businesses
The new subsidiary company, DENIC Services GmbH & Co. KG, shall pursue the
goal of developing, establishing and operating new and existing business
lines within the Cooperative’s core areas of expertise and fields of interest.
After the start of its operative business in the second half of 2018, DENIC
Services GmbH & Co. KG shall initially take care of the DNS Anycast
Services, Data Escrow Services and Direct Services units. Revenues of the
subsidiary shall also be used to support such projects or initiatives that
advance the interests of the overall Internet community.
Domain holders having registered their .DE domain names with DENIC Direct
Services, instead of via a registrar, shall in the future be served by the
new affiliate company’s customer care team, that shall act as the parent
company DENIC eG’s processing agent. Yet, DENIC eG shall remain party to all
domain contracts under .DE, including those of direct customers.
Moreover, DENIC Services GmbH & Co. KG shall take over from DENIC eG the
provision of DNS anycast services that DENIC eG is currently providing to
third-party top-level domain operators, as well as the provision of data
escrow services that DENIC eG is currently offering to new generic top-level
domain operators and registrars, and which it shall no longer be offering
once its subsidiary will have launched operations.
Spin-Off: Underpinning the Cooperative Approach
The reason why DENIC chose to spin off its non-member complementary business
into an affiliate company is that such business does not comply with its
statutory Cooperative assignment, limiting its purpose to the management and
operation of the .DE top-level domain.
Notwithstanding its demerger from DENIC eG, spun-off DENIC Services GmbH &
Co. KG shall remain committed to and uphold the Cooperative spirit and
values of the parent company.
For the assumption of its tasks, the subsidiary company shall utilize, on a
fee-paying basis, its parent DENIC eG‘s technical infrastructure. Clients
using DENIC’s DNS Anycast Services, Data Escrow Services or Direct Services
shall consequently be able to continue benefitting from DENIC eG’s
technical expertise, whilst customer care then provided by DENIC Services
GmbH & Co. KG shall be tailored even more specifically to their particular
The sole shareholder and general partner of DENIC Services GmbH & Co. KG
shall be the parent company DENIC eG.
