Domain Industry Preparing for Hurricane Irma

14

As you may already know, a category 4 hurricane named Hurricane Irma is currently making its way to Florida and potentially Georgia, North Carolina, and elsewhere. People who are in the crosshairs of this scary storm are either evacuating the state or making preparations to weather the storm.

There are many domain industry companies and participants that operate or live in Florida. I know of several people who work for domain industry companies that live in Florida and are preparing for the storm. People in the domain investment space should be aware that there may be a delay in response time from some companies and people who are based in Florida or who have a presence in the state of Florida.

Some domain name companies that operate or have employees in Florida include:

  • Web.com
  • NameJet
  • SnapNames
  • .Club Registry
  • MERGE Show

There are quite a few domain investors who live in Florida, although I will not share names for privacy reasons.

If you live in Florida, I wish you all the best as you weather the storm. Hopefully the storm does little damage and you stay safe.

For those out of harm’s way, I urge you to be patient as you communicate with people who may be impacted. Some people are with their families and/or evacuating, and responding to business questions or concerns is a lower priority right now. Many people are dealing with a potentially life or death situation, and they will need some time to prepare.

    “Some people are with their families and/or evacuating, and responding to business questions or concerns is a lower priority right now.”

    On the other hand, if you were fixing to file a UDRP against a registrant in Florida, this is an opportune time to do so.

      Thus far, I have had UDRP proceedings in which (a) the NAF refused to grant an extension on 9/11, as my building was being evacuated, and (b) there was no recourse on the ten day post-UDRP litigation deadline where the relevant Mutual Jurisdiction court happened to be indefinitely closed due to hurricane Katrina.

      There are no emergency circumstance safeguards built into these policies, which means that disasters can be exploited.

    My families prayers are with all the families in harm’s way. Be safe out there and evacuate asap if you can. Hurricanes/Storms like Irma are not ones to think you can safely wait them out in your homes. Staying is like playing Russian roulette.

    I sure am glad that I don’t like in Tampa? Oh wait, I do!

    A disaster shelter would be a great investment.
    Stay safe! 🙂

    It’s not a cat 4 hurricane. It’s a category 5 hurricane.

    In any case, it’s horrible news for all people who will be impacted. I hope everyone stays safe.
