China + Domain Name Industry Knowledge

INTA and domain names. 1997 vs. 2013.

Leave a comment

As the INTA 2013 Annual Meeting comes to a close I can’t help but note the focus on domain names within the INTA community and on the home page of their website.

Compare that to 1997 when my then business partner and I had to write a letter and call INTA to explain what domain names were in order to have their *potential* consideration to exhibit at the annual meeting as Internet Domain Names Inc. and introduce domain names to the IP community.

Our first customer was an IP lawyer that paid us $100 cash *per* .com name at our INTA booth to register names for them as a result. At that point we felt like we definitely had a business. Now we have the TMCH. How times have changed…

I publish two blogs. One (PinkysEye.com) related to my lifelong interest in photography, video, wanderlust travel, and telling stories. The other (PinkyBrand.com) addresses my experiences and opinions on business development, China, and the domain name industry, where I’ve spent the better part of the last 21 years at the registry and registrar levels.
