NamesCon Keynote from GoDaddy’s Paul Nicks

8

One of the most popular and helpful keynote speeches at NamesCon was the one given by Paul Nicks, GM of the Aftermarket at GoDaddy. In his speech, Paul discusses how GoDaddy prices, sells, and manages its NameFind portfolio.

I was unable to attend the speech due to the conflicting ICA panel held at the same time as the keynote, so I have been hoping video of the keynote would be shared online. Joe Styler just tweeted about the video, and I embedded the keynote below for your viewing pleasure.

If you have questions for Paul in response to his keynote, you are welcome to share them in the comment section. I have not yet had the chance to watch the video, but I plan to watch it as soon as I have some free time.

My NamesCon 2018 Recap

17

I attended my fifth NamesCon this past week and have a special lapel pin to show it. As I have come to expect, the conference was top quality, and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see friends and colleagues. This year's event seemed to run even more smoothly than ever, and the NamesCon organizers were on point throughout the event. Now that I am back home and rested, I want to share my NamesCon recap with you.

It is very important to note that I spent very little time in the panels and sessions. In fact, the ICA panel about UDRP proceedings was the only panel I attended - in addition to parts of the domain auction. For additional transparency, I should also add that I paid for my conference ticket right after last year's conference and NamesCon has been advertising on my blog.

Now that the formalities are out of the way, here are some thoughts I am back in the office: (more…) → Read More

GoDaddy to Offer Bulk Appraisal “Token” to NamesCon Attendees

3

GoDaddy recently introduced a free domain name appraisal tool. The purpose of the automated appraisal is to help give users a sense of the value of a domain name. The proprietary appraisal algorithm is based on a number of factors, including comparable domain name sales, length of the domain name, domain extension, and other factors.

One thing people may have found lacking is a bulk domain name appraisal option. At the present time, users need to search for domain names individually. As a result, users could not get appraisals across an entire domain name portfolio unless they spent time checking each individually.

As a special offer only for NamesCon conference attendees, GoDaddy will be giving out a "token" with a (more…) → Read More

Final NamesCon Sale Before Conference

0

A business colleague from New York emailed me a week ago to ask if I have a NamesCon discount code. I did not have one to provide for him, but the conference organizers just announced one "final sale before the conference."

Until Tuesday, January 2, people can save 50% off the current conference pass rates. The two tiers of prices are $399.50 for the standard pass and $574.50 for the VIP pass. This does not include the EventBrite booking fee. NamesCon 2018 will be held in Las Vegas January 28 - 31 at the Tropicana hotel.

If you haven't bought your NamesCon ticket yet, now is probably a good time. The discount code is located within the NamesCon tweet:
