NamesCon 2019

Welcome to NamesCon 2019! Best sessions on Sunday!

Welcome to NamesCon 2019! I may not be attending this year but my am paying close attention to what is happening in Las Vegas.

Sunday is the first day of the conference and it seems that Sunday has become the new Wednesday at least in terms of attendance. Wednesday has almost nothing on the agenda so most people leave on Wednesday morning or even late on Tuesday. Wednesday used to be a lot busier a few years back.

Here is what caught my eye from the Sunday’s sessions and events:

  • Domain Investing 101: The 6 Domain Types, 23 Characteristics & Impact on Your Domain Name Valuations (11:00 AM – 11:30 AM)
    Domain Investing 201: Turning Your Domain Name Hobby Into a Profitable Business (
    1:00 PM – 1:30 PM)
    Michael Cyger always has compelling presentations even if these are mostly targeting newbies.
  • Fireside Chat with WIPO and the ICA (1:00 PM – 1:30 PM)

    Zak Muscovitch is doing great work as the General Councel at Internet Commerce Association
  • Common Legal Mistakes Domainers Make (3:00 PM – 3:30 PM)
    Zak Muscovitch – General Councel at Internet Commerce Association
  • Domain Name Cash Flows: Leasing, Financing and Structuring (3:30 PM – 4:00 PM)

    I have heard Mark talk very passionately about domain name leasing and he has some very good ideas and a lot of experience in this type of deals.
  • .GLOBAL Opening Reception (HAVANA ROOM) (8:00 PM11:59 PM)
    Wish I was there!
BTW what is up with this session called Secrets to triple your TM typo earnings (3:30 PM – 4:00 PM)??? Does he mean generic typos like “helth” when “health” happens to be a TM? Anyway that is not a title for a session at NamesCon. Just delete “TM” from the title…

  1. For the “Domain Name Valuations” session, here in my humble opinion is a great recent example of how services like Estibot’s “appraisals” poison the real world end user market and cause great real harm and loss to everyone:
