The Lowdown

April 29, 2008 Post

Here's the The Lowdown from DNJournal.com! Updated daily to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry!

Compiled by Ron Jackson (Editor/Publisher)


Several tidbits for you today. In case you missed it when it went up yesterday, our comprehensive review of the Domain Roundtable conference that ended last week in San 

Auctioneer David O'Shaughnessy directing 
last week's Domain Roundtable live auction.

Francisco has been published here. In that article we mentioned a minor flap had developed between organizers of the Roundtable live auction and new appraisal firm DomainConsultant.com who was called on to help select domains for the sale. After the auction concluded with a large drop off in total sales compared to last year's event, DomainConsultant offered their view of what went wrong in an article on their site published April 23. Today they followed up with another article

Though the auction didn't go as well as last year (for a number of reasons) there was still a lot to like about the DRT show, including a great venue, strong educational program and excellent networking opportunities. We take you through the conference hour by hour in our exclusive wrap up article.

Following the LH.com fiasco yesterday, it was good to get news today that the British owners of MySpace.co.uk are getting their domain back. Even though they registered the name six years before MySpace.com even existed, Nominet's Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) took the domain away from them in January. Now, an independent appeals panel has stepped in and reversed that poor DRS decision. 

Fabulous.com, who will host the first overseas T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference November 18-20, 2008 on Australia's Gold Coast is reminding those who plan to go that tomorrow is the last day you can register at the reduced $995 early bird rate (the price jumps to $1295 May 1). Visit TrafficDownUnder.com to register or get more information on the event.

One other note today, WashingtonVC has added Adam Goozh to their executive team as Managing Director. Mr Goozh's bio is posted on the WashingtonVC site. He will primarily focus on strategic relationships, fund development, business planning, and due diligence matters. Goozh holds a Bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and a J.D. from The Georgetown University Law Center and he is a 
member of the Maryland and District of Columbia bar.
