Established in 1996, Nominet run one of the world’s largest internet registries and manage over ten million domain names. Nominet is responsible for the registry of .uk domain names and deals with any disputes that may arise. Nominet selected Moore-Wilson as their digital agency in 2009 and we now work with a number of different departments on a range of projects. Nominet have engaged Moore-Wilson’s services in areas that include website design, development and branding.
One of the key projects we have undertaken for Nominet has been a major project to promote the positive aspects of the internet by helping people to take practical steps to avoid the various scams, fraud and unwanted contact that many people fear. We developed the brand name ‘KnowTheNet’ and launched a major new website to promote online safety. The website underwent extensive user testing that included a preview at ‘Internet World’ using a branded stand and giveaways.
Moore-Wilson has also been involved with Nominet Trust. This is an independent charitable foundation that was set up by Nominet in 2008. The Trust is the UK’s leading social technology funder and has directly awarded over £17m in grant funding to UK social tech ventures since 2009. Nominet asked Moore-Wilson to re-launch their website for the Nominet Trust and make much more of their great case studies.
The resulting website highlights the case studies and encourages much greater interactivity through the use of blogs, video and social media. As the Trust deals with a large number of projects and grants the website required a complex grant application and tracking system. We built a bespoke project information management system for the client using the PHP framework Laravel and integrated it with Tableau, a business intelligence package. The new project information management system allows Nominet to track the progress of projects from the application process through to the end of funding. It also allows the client to check the status of projects and ensure they are running as they should.
