Group that promoted .green domain name for years is back at the table, and Kathy Nielson has joined the team.
Remember DotGreen Community, the company that wanted to run the .green top level domain name but gave up in the face of competition?
The company never really went away, but it famously gave up its bid to run .green after determining it wouldn’t be able to win an auction with three other applicants. It was very early to the table and spent lavishly to market .green before the application period even opened.
Well, it’s baaaack.
Afilias, which won the auction for .Green, has partnered with DotGreen Community. It seems that Afilias will be the backend provider and leave the business side of .green to DotGreen Community.
DotGreen Community also announced that Kathy Nielson has left Sedo to join the company, where she will be Executive Director of Registry Operations and Channel Relations. Nielson had been with Sedo since 2009.
