History

Founded in 1999, BulkRegister is one of the oldest ICANN accredited registrars. Until 2006, BulkRegister was a service supported by members who paid an annual membership fee in order to get lower fees for domain registrations.

BulkRegister was bought by eNom in July 2006, making eNom the second largest domain name registrar in the world, as of 2007. [3]
