Large web host to use LogicBoxes for domain name registration.

LogicBoxes just picked up a big customer.

The company announced today that web hosting company HostGator will use its back end registrar services. HostGator currently has an ICANN accreditation but is registering domains as a reseller. The transition from reseller to registrar will occur in early 2011, and existing customers and resellers should not experience any impact.

According to DomainTools, HostGator currently manages over 1.3 million domains on its nameservers. It has offices in Houston and Austin.

LogicBoxes provides a registrar automation platform that enables registrars to offer over 50 top level domains while not worrying about the technology backend. It currently hosts over 75 ICANN accredited registrars.
