Over the years many people have asked: "What's a pairNIC?" This page was created to answer that question.

Of course, the first part of the name "pairNIC" comes from the name of the company -- pair Networks, Inc. The "NIC" in pairNIC stands for "Network Information Center." Domain Name Registrars were originally referred to as "NICs" (short for Network Information Centers).

We decided to keep the NIC designation and call our domain name registration service "pairNIC." Pretty neat, huh?
