Verisign Continues To Benefit From Lucrative Registry Contracts That Underpin Our Wide-Moat Rating

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Emma Williams |

Verisign provides registry services for several top-level domains, or TLDs, and infrastructure essential to the functioning of the internet. Verisign plays a vital role in supporting the Domain Name System, or DNS, which is akin to a massive address book that matches human friendly domain names to the accompanying numbers-based Internet Protocol, or IP, address. This allows an end user to browse the internet and access requested content via a network of interconnected servers. The company operates software and infrastructure globally to support the translation of domain names to IP addresses for its assigned domains, including managing zone files and registration and policies for the specified domain. Verisign also provides root zone maintenance services, operates two of the world’s 13 roots servers that are foundational to the DNS, and manages a shared registration system that allows registrars to query the availability of and manage second level domains.

VRSN’s stock style is Mid Growth.
Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
