London Domain Name Summit Founder Acquires UK's Biggest Domain Forum - Acorn Domains

I guess it is now fair to say that Helmuts Meskonis has gone nuts - about domains that is! The founder of the London Domain Name Summit conference that debuted last summer has just acquired the UK's oldest and largest domain investor's forum - AcornDomains.co.uk. With this purchase (at an undisclosed price) Meskonis gains a popular platform for promoting the next edition of his Summit for the European and global domain name industry that is coming up August 22-23 at the Hilton London Metropole.

Acorn Domains has over 15,400 registered members and has accumulated more than 625,000 posts. Helmuts noted, "The Acorn acquisition aligns well with the London Summit's mission to connect the domain name industry and create more business opportunities for everyone in the industry." 

Meskonis, a domain investor and serial entrepreneur who also operates the global hosting brand HostMaria, added, "We will be bringing in several more moderators from the established Acorn Domains community to help ensure that the forum continues to be a friendly and safe place for everyone. Our goal is to provide an environment that fosters productive discussions and connections, while also promoting the financial success of all of our members. Also, a huge thanks to Steve Napier for carrying the torch for so many years, and letting me be a part of what I think is one of the most important resources in the UK domain industry, it is truly an honor."

Meskonis said he is also working on several other strategic partnership deals related to both AcornDomains.co.uk and the London Summit. The first strategic partnership has already been signed with London-based Intis Telecom, administrator of the .it.com registry, who will be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2023 London Domain Name Summit. Meskonis has also announced that popular domain industry veteran Tess Diaz (the former Executive Producer and Host of DomainSherpa.com) will serve as the Conference Moderator and Facilitator.
