CentralNic sees earnings double

London-based CentralNic yesterday reported profits of £636,000, a jump of nearly 100 per cent, in the six months to 30 June. The internet registry service also revealed revenues had risen to £1.7m during the same period. CentralNic went public last month on London’s Alternative Investment Market (Aim). CentralNic chair John Swingewood said increased demand for its domain names, new retail channels and new inventory drove the sharp profit rise.
