CORPORATION SERVICE COMPANY ACQUIRES MELBOURNE IT
DIGITAL BRAND SERVICES
Wilmington, DE (www.cscglobal.com): Corporation Service Company® (CSC®)announced today that it has acquired the Digital Brand Services (DBS) division of Melbourne IT. The resulting corporate domain name and online services business will operate under a new name, CSC Digital Brand Services.
"This acquisition significantly expands CSC's global capabilities and will establish CSC Digital Brand Services as the partner of choice for companies worldwide seeking to promote and protect their brands online," said CSC Vice President Jim Stoltzfus.
The digital marketplace is continuing to evolve, with the launch of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' New gTLD program ushering in the most significant change to the domain name space since the introduction of country code top-level domains. CSC Digital Brand Services is helping companies secure more than one-third of all commercial, or "dot brand," New gTLD applications.
"Our combined New gTLD expertise makes CSC Digital Brand Services the ideal partner for brand owners looking to take advantage of this significant development in the digital marketplace," said Stoltzfus.
As a result of this acquisition, CSC Digital Brand Services now provides corporate domain name and other online services to a majority of the world's most prestigious brands, with a footprint that extends to six continents.
"We have always been impressed with CSC's strong customer-first reputation and believe customers will benefit greatly from the combination of two of the leading providers of digital brand services," said Theo Hnarakis, CEO and Managing Director of Melbourne IT.
