I need to register domain names in France, Spain, Switzerland. It appears you have to use country specific registrars. Does anyone know a reliable International registrar that has access to multple ccTLD's?

Super helpful info. last question, have you ever heard of Iron Mountain?

Apparently they are w'worls leader" in domain record management and have some nice user friendly interface tools to wher you can maanage your portfolio, etc. Sounds like all Fortune 500's use them..

Thoughts?

I never heard about them. It looks like they manage domain records over 50 domains but they are not registrants.

I have had some experience with Iron Mountain in an enterprise environment.
We have an international portfolio of 3000 domains.

Another global registrar we're using atm is domainthenet.com.

Your company is the registrant except where the country rules demand a local presence, and then you need a proxy to register the domain for you (for example, in Italy).

Is there anything specific you want to know about Iron Mountain?

Thanks for the great info. I guess I wanted to gauge your experience with Iron Mountain as well as to get an opinion if you  think it is necessary to have a company that size managing a domain portfolio of 35 domains? They say that, smaller portfolios is the meat of their business but I may just use our IT provider as domain name management and DNS hosting is covered under our current arrangement.

Would love tyo hear your thoughts.
