Starting this week-end: The Domain Conference

New contracting statistics have been released by the ICANN but I 'd be tempted to focus on the coming The Domain Conference which is to start this week-end. Many new gTLD applicants will be present and it will be interesting to listen to the General Manager for Amazon Registry Services, author of "Start, Scale, Exit, Repeat!" (find him here), Jeff Sass "also named "The Vegan", Dan Schindler from Donuts, Jennifer Gore - Director of Registrar Services at ICANN, Rolf Larsen - CEO of the .GLOBAL Registry and many other domain name experts such as lawyers, brokers and other specialists.

Starting tomorrow: the Sedo .CLUB Premium domains' auction.

New domain name registration volumes:
  • HOT - New gTLDs related to SPORT;
  • New gTLDs related to ALCOHOL;
  • New gTLDs related to RELIGION;
  • New gTLDs related to FRENCH new gTLD applicants;
  • New gTLDs related to REAL ESTATE.
