Rick Latona launches ccTLD forum.
The forum includes separate sections for each of the major, non-commercialized top level domains (no .tv or .me here). It appears that Latona’s director of marketing Ray Neu (son of TRAFFIC co-founder Howard Neu) will be spearheading the forum along with Latona.
Latona is a big proponent and believer in country code top level domain names, although he became a convert only last year. His world travels taught him that there’s more than just .com. Latona spoke on a panel at Domainer Mardi Gras in New Orleans where he discussed his belief that ccTLDs have a future (if not a present).
Given the many intricacies and challenges of the ccTLD market, including some tlds with residency requirements, this forum could prove very valuable to people interested in the ccTLD market.
Latona is organizing a country code domain name-focused TRAFFIC conference in Amsterdam this June. Conference admission is $1795 if you register before April 15.
