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.

  1. “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.

  2. 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.
