Domain Boardroom Celebrates 10th Birthday


Domain Boardroom, a private domain industry discussion forum founded by Donna Mahony, is celebrating its 10th birthday today:

I have been a member of DBR since Donna created it, and it is hard to believe it has been ten years already. To put it in perspective for me a bit, I wasn’t even married when I joined!

Donna told me there are approximately 200 members of Domain Boardroom. She also said there is usually a list of at least 50 applications from people who are interested in becoming members of DBR.

Here’s what Donna had to say about DBR on its 10th birthday:

“I’d like to say that I’m proud of providing an atmosphere where people help each other achieve success. A place where competitors reach out and give each other a helping hand. One thing I love watching on DBR is people like yourself who now have children, some already in school and those kids weren’t even born when the board opened. I’m excited for the day one of these kids grows up and applies for membership at DBR!”

I have enjoyed meeting people in the industry and having a friendly place to chat about domain names and about the domain industry. It’s been a great 10 years for Domain Boardroom – and quite an accomplishment to keep a community like this thriving.

      In fairness, you were never banned. You weren’t allowed in because you tried to apply as DomainKing! That was actually funny in hindsight! Thanks Tommy!
