NamesCon Keynote from GoDaddy’s Paul Nicks


One of the most popular and helpful keynote speeches at NamesCon was the one given by Paul Nicks, GM of the Aftermarket at GoDaddy. In his speech, Paul discusses how GoDaddy prices, sells, and manages its NameFind portfolio.

I was unable to attend the speech due to the conflicting ICA panel held at the same time as the keynote, so I have been hoping video of the keynote would be shared online. Joe Styler just tweeted about the video, and I embedded the keynote below for your viewing pleasure.

If you have questions for Paul in response to his keynote, you are welcome to share them in the comment section. I have not yet had the chance to watch the video, but I plan to watch it as soon as I have some free time.

For customers who want to buy a specific domain name but don't really know how to go about doing that, there are a number of services offered by companies like Domain Agents and registrars like GoDaddy and Network Solutions. I would imagine GoDaddy's Domain Buy Service has considerable volume due to the company's footprint, although I have only received a couple of inquiries and no closed deals that I can recall.

Yesterday afternoon, GoDaddy tweeted about an upcoming Google Hangout to discuss its Domain Buy Service:

As I generally do when I see something like this, I reached out to GoDaddy's Joe Styler to ask for some details about the Hangout. Here's what Joe told me: (more…) → Read More
