We are less than two weeks away from NamesCon! In just a couple of weeks, we are expecting to see a huge turnout in Las Vegas for this year’s conference. Conferences passes are still available for purchase.
We are running the NamesCon Sponsor Spotlight interview series on DomainInvesting.com to introduce and reacquaint people in the industry with NamesCon sponsors. Today, we bring you an interview with Marco Hoffmann, Head of Domain Services and Product Management at InterNetX.
See you soon!
What is your company’s mandate; what sets you apart?
InterNetX is an international company with offices in Regensburg and Munich in Germany, Miami and Vancouver, with 110 employees. We are an Internet provider in the B2B area, offering domain, server and SSL solutions for business customers. With more than 3.8 million domains, over 3,000 hosted servers and more than 20,000 managed SSL certificates, we are one of the leading providers for domain products and hosting solutions.
Who benefits from your product or service?
We are the ideal partner for professional domainers, registrars and hosters. Our customers particularly benefit from our white-label domain management software AutoDNS, which greatly simplifies managing large domain portfolios. In addition, InterNetX offers the right product and convenient services for each target group.
What factors have contributed to your company’s growth and success?
One of the reasons InterNetX is successful is because we take special care of the requirements and needs of our customers. Our customizable solutions help us achieve a very high customer satisfaction. Besides our large product portfolio around domains, our motivated and dedicated employees are deciding factors for our success.
How would you define your company strategy and vision?
Our vision is making domain management as easy and practical as possible. This requires us to continuously develop and enhance our products to tailor them to the specific requirements of our customers. Considering our position between registry and reseller, we are the calm anchor in the middle and call ourselves “registrar as a service”.
What major milestones has your company accomplished?
The biggest company milestone has been the development and implementation of AutoDNS. The domain management software is unique on the market and the main link between InterNetX and our customers.
How will your company engage attendees at the upcoming NamesCon?
Our speakers will talk about industry trends in the upcoming year. At our booth we will present new products and answer any questions visitors may have. Additionally we’ll offer a special VIP service for NamesCon attendees. Richard will announce this fancy surprise in the next days.
How has (or will) NamesCon helped your company achieve its goals?
NamesCon is the ideal platform to attract new customers and to keep an open ear for the market. We are particularly looking forward to meeting potential and existing customers on site to get direct feedback for our products and to extend our network.
What are your thoughts on the new TLDs?
The new gTLDs will continue to play an important role in 2017, particularly since there will be some delays on the market. The development regarding the .WEB case will also be interesting.
What are you most looking forward to at the upcoming conference?
We are very excited to meet our customers, international interested parties and industry competitors on site. We are hoping to get new insights on the latest trends from the many interesting presentations.
