However he also declares in the video that his last date at ICANN will be March 12th 2016 (around 2 minutes in): Who will be […]
ICANN’s Compliance department is being made that little bit more accessible via a new friendly video: As domain transfers are the most common source of complaints it’s not surprising that they chose an issue with a transfer for “Sarah”. And as ICANN is “global” you can also watch the video in French, Spanish, Chinese or […]
The .CEO registry have released a new video. They seem to have dumped their previous style and opted for a more traditional and professional approach. Here’s the video: The video is a big improvement on their previous marketing efforts, but they’re still trying to pitch the .ceo lander pages as a “solution” to a problem […]
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months you’re probably aware of John Oliver’s hilarious TV show “Last Week Tonight”. It airs on HBO at 11pm, but has also been picked up by Sky and other channels overseas – plus, since it’s 2014, most of the content is also available on […]
Vint Cerf is one of the fathers of the internet. So when he sits us all down, metaphorically speaking, to tell us about his child it might be worth listening. This short video explains how the internet’s address book works ie. how domains map to numbers (IP addresses) and who runs it all. As well […]
A LOT of the domain name bloggers have been talking about the launch of .xyz over the last few days. Prior to the launch Daniel Negari posted an article on his blog, which of course uses a .xyz domain, and was very optimistic about how the TLD would fare. I don’t know Daniel Negari personally, […]
The .global registry released this video a couple of weeks ago. I’m not sure if I love it or hate it, but it’s definitely better than some of the ones I’ve seen so far .. Enjoy:

ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé has announced a firm date for new TLD launch. In a video interview, with Brad White, Fadi Chehadé put April 23rd as a date when the first new TLD could be delegated. He admits, however, that the date may “slip”, though this time the “slippage” should be days or weeks and not […]
Amusing.. From the description: ICANN’s top level domain expansion scheme can be called a lot of things: expensive, deceptive, exploitive, extortive, enraging, confusing, embarrassing, and more … but when you actually look at the massive, rather insane list of TLD applications submitted so far, I’m forced to admit that ICANN’s plan can also be called […]
