A Female Perspective on the Domain Industry

Mou Mukherjee is an industry veteran and a friend who is Head of Registry Services at .CLOUD, which is an iQ customer.

I originally approached Mou about doing an interview for the iQ Podcast on the successes and challenges of running a new gTLD registry. At some point during our initial conversation, I recall Mou mentioning her unique experience of “being a woman of color, born in India, raised in Canada, working for an Italian company, and doing business in China.”

That’s when it hit me. “Mou, I think you have an amazing story to tell that will inspire and help others! We should do an interview that speaks to this! (The irony of me being a male suggesting and then conducting this interview is not lost!)

So this interview is a bit of a departure from the usual. We spend the first half of the discussion going through Mou’s early days in the industry, and then her observed successes and challenges of running a registry, etc. The last half is all about her lived experience as a female in the domain industry.

Thank you Mou for opening up the door a bit to your amazing story.

In addition to subscribing and listening wherever you get your podcasts, you can also listen to the interview via the Alexa Home Assistant.

Just say: “Alexa, play iQ Global Podcast, Episode 14.

I publish to three blogs. One (PinkysEye.com) is related to my lifelong interest in photography, video, travel, and telling stories. The second (PinkyBrand.com) addresses my experiences and opinions in the domain name industry, where I’ve spent the better part of the last 26 years at the registry, registrar, and consulting levels. The third (iq.global/blog) shares knowledge and updates from iQ Global AS regarding cybersecurity, business intelligence, DNS abuse, DevOps, and consulting for the domain name and hosting industries.
