What would you ask the leaders and decision makers in the domain Industry if you had the chance to meet them face to face. You can direct your question to a specific company or CEO or direct them to the domain Industry at large. Thread Rules: Keep your questions specific to the domain Industry and not any personal matters. Must be professional, respectful, constructive, and not to use this as an opportunity to attack, demean, or ridicule any other person or company. There is zero tolerance for rude or insulting language and behavior or any attempt at using underhanded tactics to attack the competition. Because of the sensitive nature of this thread I invite the Namepros management and mods to keep a close eye on the conversations here for any violations whether direct or in disguise. Anyone can provide an answer to the questions that fall within their area of authority and expertise even if the questions are addressed to someone else but can not and should not answer on behalf of someone else without their consent and prior authorization. You are welcomed to within reason use some of your company’s projects, goals, and ambitions as reference, but I don’t want this thread to become overwhelmed by promotions and links that would be considered pure advertisement. I start by asking the following questions directed at the domain Industry at large: 1- Is it okay for Registrars to be in competition with their own customers for their expiring domains and deprive them of adequate opportunity to renew their domains. 2- Why don’t registrars give the full 35 days to registrants to renew their domains without any additional penalties and costs. (like Fabulous.com does for example) 3- Why aren’t there some Unified and Universal rules and policies across all Registrars in regards to the 60 day lock, domain deletion, or redemption and renewal of expired domains. 4- Why is it that I check a domain for availability either on a Registrar’s websites or the Whois and a few days later I see that it is taken and put under domain privacy. 5- Why should Registries be allowed to impose an arbitrary tax on everyone by increasing the registration fees while the total number of registered domains keep increasing (like in the case of .com). 6- Why are people allowed to use their position for personal agendas and profits like it's being done at ICANN with .org 7- What is being done by all the companies that are involved in the domain Industry towards empowering domainers specially in the emerging Economies. 8- What is being done towards protecting the public rights and interests as far as privacy, free speech, and keeping the integrity of their online presence through protecting their rights as registrants and website owners. 9- And finally how and when is everyone going to implement new technologies such as AI to better serve and protect their customers.
