Arno Vis is the founder and CEO of Openprovider a fast growing domain registrar from the Netherlands. Arno is also a member of the Registrar Advisory Board of EURID and the Agents Forum of DNS BE. In the past Arno was a founder and boardmember of the Dutch Association of Registrars SIDN (VVR).
Arno started and sold several companies related to marketing-communication and the internet in the past and has just started a new company called Powerpanel and will start another company in the Fintech industry later this year.
Arno particularly focusses on business ideas that are innovating and/or disruptive for commoditising industries. Openprovider is for example charging a yearly membership fee that allows Openprovider members to register domains at registry costprices without having to maintain a complex infrastructure themselves. Registrars do not add any real value to domains and therefor we only charge for the use of our platform and not a margin per domainname.
