We have also developed an expansive partner network of security agencies and product companies which supply us with real-time, actionable intelligence.
Your job is to manage and expand on these processes and to be on the innovative edge of forensic and predictive analytics in an effort to continuously improve the trust and safety levels of our namespace.
In addition to protection and enforcement, our job is to also develop and enhance policy on all related matters.

WE ARE THE RADICALS
At Radix we envision a world where there is no distinction between the real names and internet addresses of individuals and businesses. We are a team of young creative hustlers who are revolutionizing the internet, one domain name at a time.
REVOLUTIONIZING THE INTERNET
We started out in 2012 as a part of the Bhavin Turakhia led Directi Group, which has been a prominent player in the web presence industry since the 90s. The meteoric rise in the number of websites back then led to an acute shortage of quality domain names. The depleting name pool within the .com / .net led to growing customer dissatisfaction as first choice names became impossible to find! We knew that domain names had to evolve in order to serve their purpose of memorable online identities.
When the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers opened the door to new top level domains other than the .com, .net, .org etc., we knew it was the perfect opportunity to solve a growing customer problem.
Equipped with powerful and meaningful new extensions such as .tech, .online, .store, .fun, .site, .press etc. we set out on a mission to eliminate the distinction between the real names and internet addresses of individuals and businesses. We started with an audacious goal of building a world where domain names are less like phone numbers which need to be written and stored and more like brand names which are easily remembered. And here we are, with almost 6 million domains already registered on our extensions, we are well on the path towards revolutionizing the internet. Brands like Viacom (www.viacom.tech), Emirates (emirates.store), Doordash (order.online), CES (ces.tech) and many more have already made the switch. It’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world does it too. To sum it up, the internet history is being rewritten and Radix is at the core of it.
