The Secondary Markets

The secondary markets surrounding the domain name business are ever evolving but are premium names worth the investment? Are domain names in SEO alive and kicking? Does traffic still pay off? Can you make a living in PPC? The market trends, with 2017 showing growth, support that some of these practices still see business but let's ask the people involved.

Domain and DNS Abuse

As with any business and technology, domain names and DNS can be used in an abusive manor. This is a well-known fact which is no subject of debate. However, how domain names and the DNS-system are being abused is ever changing, making it hard to keep up and protect yourself, your business and your interests. To get a handle on this, we invite you to listen to an educational story from experts in the field. It's a scary tale for sure.

Internet Content Responsibility

In this day and age, you could say that the internet of today mainly consists of infrastructure, services, people and content. Most would agree that the internet service providers are responsible for the infrastructure, that the service provider are responsible for the services and that people, in most cases, are responsible for their own actions.

GDPR, in practice

GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, is something that is on every service providers mind in one way or another. It’s a phenomenon that has spawned a multitude of professional careers, job titles and consultancies. But what does it mean for registries, registrars and service providers? What, in practice, do we all need to do to comply? How do we make sure that we are not to be slapped with a company and career-ending fine?

Domain name tools and utilities

As long as domain names have been around there have been tools and utilities to further the use of DNS, check that a domain name is set up properly and is doing its job. Many of these tools have passed their expire date and have made an exit. But, what is out there right now?
