directNIC is a company that provides a number of services related to internet commerce, including:
- Domain Registration (see Domain Registrar) and DNS Services
- Domain Web Hosting
- Credit Card Processing (see Merchant Card Processing)
- SSL Certificates
They are operated by Intercosmos Media Group, Inc.
Their Merchant Card Processing "free signup" special appears to be a chronic floater, in that it always claims to end the next day (as of 2005-12-05 and -12-06). As such, it appears to be an extremely good deal, as the rest of the terms are quite favorable as well.
