History: Neustar was incorporated in 1998 to meet the technical and operational challenges of the communications industry when the U.S. government mandated local telephone number portability. Since that time, Neustar has introduced many technologies that deliver a broad range of essential clearinghouse and registry services. Neustar's existing services include a highly scalable, robust and flexible Internet domain name registry platform that enables secure and reliable delivery of DNS and domain registration services to millions of end user consumers. Neustar has successfully managed the .US ccTLD since 2001 under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Commerce.
