A recap from NamesCon plus Roland LaPlante of Afilias.
This week I have a wide-ranging discussion with Roland LaPlante, Chief Marketing Officer of Afilias. We discuss new top level domain names and why Afilias’ past experience with launching TLDs made its expectations for the current round more realistic. We also chat about increased competition for backend registry services, the challenges of restricted TLDs and Afilias’ fight for .Web. I also recap last week’s NamesCon conference and have five short interviews from the event.
