DomiNIC is a domain name and DNS Management software originally developed in Germany by Dominic GMBH and now managed through CentralNic.

Company History

The idea for a software product that automates domain registrations and management came to Sven-Holger Wabnitz in 1994 and the software that became DomiNIC was developed in that year. It went to market the next year as the first software of its kind in Germany. Dominic GMBH went through the process of liquidation in December 2013, during which time its assets, including the DomiNIC software were purchased by CentralNic. A new company by the name of dnsXperts UG was formed by previous Dominic GMBH staff members in order to support CentralNic with the ongoing development and support of the software product.[1]


The DomiNIC software solution supports all relevant domain and DNS related business processes. A wide range of built-in registry and registrars interfaces provides a wide choice of TLDs, while the central BPE automates the processes in accordance with each partner´s individual policies by TLD.

With DomiNIC, Registrars can drive greater automation in their processes and its SOAP APIs allow for a comfortable integration into the user´s IT infrastructure.

As a vendor independent solution, DomiNIC supports the traditional Domain Name Industry and the Domain Name holders, i.e. businesses and organisations that own substantial domain portfolios.

Along with its original use CentralNic has reintroduced the software as an independent TLD management solution for .brand Registries and their advisors. [2]
