TANGO REGISTRY SERVICES was created in response to the historic passage of a new gTLD program by ICANN at its 41st meeting held in June, 2011 in Singapore. It is largely a registry software service wholly owned and distributed by Knipp Medien und Kommunikation GmbH, though they also provide certain hardware support. TANGO registry focuses entirely on Brand TLDs, that is, the new opportunities for brands to create their own .brand domain via the new gTLD program. They note that while most other standard registries have a diffuse chain of actors, including registry operators, registrars, and end users, a brand may now be the operator, administrator, and user of their own domain. Thus, they focus on empowering those brands looking to create their own domain space through their specialized software and hardware services.[1]

They were silver sponsors for ICANN 42 in Dakar,[2] and have been sponsoring other domain events throughout 2011 such as the the NewDomains.org conference held in Munich and Domain Forum held in Sofia.[3][4]

Their parent company, Knipp Medien und Kommunikation GmbH, also owns ironDNS.[5]
