Register and Connect Domains

With seedUp you can completely manage your entire domain name and DNS. This allows you to have everything related to your environment in one place, and provides extremely competitive prices for every TLD (Top Level Domain) you can think of. SeedUp uses AWS (Amazon Web Services) Route53 as a back-end for registering domains and managing dns zones. It’s a rock solid platform and allows you the most flexibility in providing zone management. When transferring a domain name to seedUp, you will receive many emails and notifications, probably a few from where-ever you are transferring the domain from, than finally a couple from AWS once the transfer is in progress and completed. You can always view the status of your transfer and/or registration in the Domains section.
