Nordic Domain Days: Business

Rum C3, plan 2

An update from the Nordic country code top-level domain names, and the domain names industry.

Nordic Domain Days is the Nordic domain industry conference. We gather registries, registrars, resellers and vendors from the business for two days of seminars and networking. As per tradition, the first day deals with business topics such as the use of business intelligence and policy topics such as data validation versus ease of acquisition and use. The second day is a technical deep dive into the territory of DNS, the backbone of our industry.

For the last couple of years, the use of data and business intelligence has made its way into the domain name industry, and it's been the talk of the town at one conference after another. But what are the results? Let's sit back and listen to some stores of success or failure.

Panel: What happened to ease of aquisition?

Early on it was identified that the product we are trying to sell is somewhat hard to understand. Ease of acquisition was identified as the key to success. Getting a domain name had to be as easy as creating a social media account.

With registrant data validation making its entry into the domain name business during the last few years these old facts of life seem to have been all but forgotten as more and more top-level domain names makes it harder and hard to register and keep a domain name.

Is there a balance between the "need" to validate and the "ease" of being a registrant?

What value does across the board validation have is there is no board to validate?

Additional Services: Registry Diversification done right!

For the last couple of years its been viewed as the fact that the domain name business is in decline, or at least that the growth is pretty much gone. This fact sent a horde of country code and generical top-level domain names into crunch-mode for diversification, for additional revenue streams and for ways of maintaining financial growth even if the domain name side of things no longer grew. During this session, we look at the results of this. What services have surfaced? How successful are they? Are there additional revenue streams for a registry to be had? And, what do the registrars think about all this?
