Tim Switzer has been hire by the .Build top level domain name registry.
A familiar face in the domain name registry business is joining the .Build team.
Tim Switzer, most recently with DotGreen, will manage the company’s operations and registrar relations activities.
Switzer was with Neustar prior to joining DotGreen. DotGreen’s bid for .green failed after the company determined it couldn’t compete in an auction for the domain name. Afilias ended up winning the .green contention set.
Switzer will have his work cut out for him at .build. The company plans to offer registrations for about $100, near the high end of registration pricing. It also faces competition from other domains including .construction.
That said, the building business is big. Just as an example, .Build is heading to ConExpo in Las Vegas this week. Over 125,000 people are expected to attend the show about asphalt, concrete, mining, and utilities.
