A new chapter in the company’s history begins, symbolised by the change of name to CPS-Datensysteme: The registration and administration of domain names using a fully automated software system becomes the company’s main focus. The SSL certificate division is established as a complementary business segment. Reports in the specialised press strengthen growth and result in an increase in the domain portfolio of over 60%. The number of domains reaches 40,000 by the end of 2003.

Accreditations with a further 12 registries, including Spain and Qatar, are successfully completed. The company moves into its new headquarter in Gilgenborn, Vallendar. At the same time as the introduction of the newly developed Domain Management Console (DMC) software, the domain portfolio exceeds the 150,000 domain name mark
