Safenames manages Cushman and Wakefield domain names
As a global business, one of the problems we faced was the lack of visibility of all our domains. Our domains were being managed by so many different registrars and agents in various countries. We needed to make sure that our domain portfolio was consolidated and visible to other offices and easy to identify.
Safenames helped us implement a better process by consolidating our domain portfolio and providing advice on country-specific sub-domains. Having all of our domains in one place with a consistent and knowledgeable account manager who understands our business has made a significant different to how are manage our domain registration process globally.
Having access to the Safenames portal allows us to review domain gaps thus enabling our local colleagues, including affiliates, to retain control of DNS changes as well as restricting transfer. Asset ownership had always been an issue in the past but that was soon identified and rectified.
