About Us

Founded on the expertise of Nick Wood and Lorna Gradden, who have worked in domain name management for a combined total of over 40 years, Com Laude make the business of domain management secure, reliable and predictable. Our unique approach to client management ensures that all aspects of domain name management are handled professionally and responsibly by a contact that the client knows and trusts. Our teams of experts create tailored approaches to domain name management for clients large and small. Our founders, Nick Wood and Lorna Gradden, provide strategic oversight and are on hand to offer guidance and assistance: you need only to pick up the phone and call.

Nick and Lorna, the directors and co-founders of Com Laude and Valideus, have worked in the domain name industry since founding Net Searchers, the first registrar in the world dedicated to working with brand owners, in 1995. Nick and Lorna are highly regarded as "thought leaders" and pioneers, who have developed Best Practice in domain name management. Com Laude is an independent company, leaving us free to work with only the best partners from other sectors of the domain name industry. Com Laude is a subsidiary of Adsero Capital, a company owned by Nick Wood, Lorna Gradden and private equity firm, Vespa Capital.

We employ over 50 people in the UK and Spain. We also have staff at our sister company in the USA.
