I questioned a Club Manager

I asked a famous club manager about changing his domain name to a .club domain name and it turned to an interesting discussion.

Extract: "It started with the same good old talk about Search Engine Optimization ("SEO"), losing positioning on the first page of Google results… If I clearly understood that reasoning on the part of a small club, I think it is a non sense for a club that already has some notoriety because notoriety is considered in Google search engine's algorithm".

Why did you register ? : interview du titulaire

Suite à un échange avec le titulaire du nom de domaine, celui-ci nous a expliqué son choix: non seulement Pierre-Eli Normandeau est fan de jeux vidéos mais aussi, grand fan des nouveaux noms de domaines. L'opportunité s’étant présentée à ce développeur de site Internet (le site s'appelait, Pierre-Eli nous a indiqué que le nom de domaine Canadien - le “.ca” est l’extension de noms de domaine pour le Canada - n’était plus cohérent car il y avait autant de visiteurs en provenance de France que du Canada or il n’existe pas d’extension Internet pour la langue Française dans sa globalité.

New gTLDs on LinkedIn: 2000 subscribers

A Milestone

It is difficult to catch up with information related to new gTLDs and there are many writers to publish excellent content every day.

The problem for readers interested in following this information is that they just can't search/visit all websites everyday to read that analysis from DomainIncite, from Domain Name Wire or from The Domains.

Who has the time to receive each Newsletter from every Registry to read about their latest announcement and who has time to read ALL articles published everyday about new generic Top-Level Domains A very few like Jovenet Consulting do: we receive most content published...every day.

In 2009, we created this group on LinkedIn about "new generic Top-Level Domains" and we select the information everyday for our readers to receive it directly in their email.

The World Wine Web should read this

Questions to have if both .WIN & .WINE ever had to coexist

You probably noticed that .WINE is the same as .WIN but with an "E" added (...) Here is a few questions that come to my mind if both new gTLDs were to coexist one day. Note that this thinking is valid for the 10 coming years.
