Global Domain Summit 2017 Set for July


Pinky Brand wrote an article geared towards American readers covering the upcoming Global Domain Summit. The China-based domain industry conference will take place in Xiamen, China from July 7-9.

If you are thinking about attending, you should definitely read Pinky's article. You should also have a look at the video Pinky created (embedded below) after last year's inaugural Global Domain Summit conference. It seems like the conference was well attended.

Hopefully conference organizers will add an English translation for the website. On the bottom of the home page, it shows some of the (invited but not necessarily confirmed) conference attendees, and there are some familiar faces. Among them (more…) → Read More

DNSeattle-Logo-SquareMichael Cyger, founder of Domain Sherpa, announced that this year's DNSeattle domain industry networking event will take place on Thursday, May 25, 2017. The event will be held at a venue called The Living Room, which is located in Amazon’s Van Vorst building in Seattle.

According to Michael, "DNSeattle will focus on domain name buying, selling, monetizing, due diligence and legal issues, success stories from Seattle-based entrepreneurs and investors, and much more." Because of space limitations, only 100 tickets to the event are being sold. This sounds like the perfect sized event for networking.

One of the cool aspects of the event is that all proceeds from ticket sales are being donated to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, an organization I am happy to help support. To that end, I bought (more…) → Read More
