ICANN: Learn About DNS

Despite the fact that I have been involved in the domain name investment space for close to 15 years (full time for 12), I still don’t have expert level knowledge about the Domain Name System (DNS). I know enough about DNS to get by, but I would not consider myself anything close to an expert when it comes to DNS.

ICANN will be hosting a free webinar to help people learn more about DNS Fundamentals. The webinar was announced this morning on ICANN’s Twitter feed:

In looking through the free learning and education section on ICANN’s website, it looks like the DNS fundamentals course is not yet available for sign-up. There are quite a few other courses that might be of interest to people involved in the business of domain investing. The Introduction to ICANN course might be a good start for people who would like to learn more about ICANN, what ICANN is supposed to do, and ICANN’s involvement in Internet governance and ultimately domain names.

I wasn’t aware of the free webinar courses offered by ICANN, but I am going to check them out. There are several topics that could benefit me as a Publisher, and I think it is good to have more background information about ICANN’s role in domain investing.
