A look at some of the results from the 2009 Domain Name Wire survey.
Today during lunch at Domainer Mardi Gras I presented some of the results from the 4th annual Domain Name Wire Survey. The results I shared were mostly related to risk management and security (the focus of the conference). More results will be released on Domain Name Wire in coming weeks.
You can view the presentation here (pdf).
Registrars: the most important things people consider when choosing a registrar are 1) security and 2) price.
Domain parking: although 45% of people thought a year ago their domain parking earnings would go up in 2008, only 16% of people actually reported higher results. 45% of people reported their earnings declined.
Domain sales values: About a third of people think domain values will go up in 2009, with similar percentages think they’ll stay the same or go down.
ICANN Satisfaction: The percentage of people that say ICANN is doing a good job has decreased from about 33% in 2006 to less than 15% in 2009.
New TLDs: Only 20% of people surveyed are in favor with ICANN going forward with its current plan to introduce new TLDs.
