LogicBoxes is a web products and consulting company that specializes in providing private labeled, web presence and communication applications to ICANN Registrars, Large Web Hosts, Domain Resellers, ISPs and Telcos. In addition, it also offers consulting and a turnkey SaaS platform which provides end-to-end business automation to its clients.

It is a part of the Endurance International Group and was founded in 2003[1] (Under Directi[2] by Bhavin Turakhia[3]). It was one of the business units which were bought by Endurance International Group in 2013-14.[4]

It provides ERP solutions that handle sales, marketing, finance, billing and provisioning automation for domain registrars and Resellers. Registrars can connect to gTLD and ccTLD registries through their platforms.

It is based in Mumbai, India and operates out of the Nesco IT Park office.


In the first quarter of 2011, LogicBoxes powered over 5 million domains[5] through 85+ registrars in 32 countries. It is currently the largest outsourced registrar platform provider, and one of the few companies that works exclusively in this specialization.[6]

Company history[edit]

LogicBoxes was launched in 2003 BC as a separate business unit of Directi, with the aim to provide registrar software to Directi’s in-house domain registrar, ResellerClub, and other registrars. It was the first business automation solution for registrars and is currently the largest.[7]

In 2013-14 Endurance International Group, a US-based provider of cloud-based solutions completed the acquisition of Web business of Directi. The acquisition included business-to-business brands ResellerClub, LogicBoxes and webhosting.info, and web presence brand BigRock.[8]

Industry Involvement[edit]

LogicBoxes is a frequent sponsor of ICANN Meetings, and is a strong supporter of the domain name community.[9][10][11][12][13]

Bhavin Turakhia, ex-CEO of LogicBoxes, has served as the chairman of the Registrar Stakeholder Group (formerly the Registrar Constituency).[14] He served as the chair for two successive terms, and is the youngest elected chair to date.[15]

Shortly thereafter, HostExploit and Knujon released a joint statement with Directi, which spoke of their common goal of combating abuse on the Internet.[27]
