HOW TO WEED OUT GOOD NAMES AND EXTENSIONS FROM THE BAD
We have so many choices, not only of domain names, but also now with over 1,000 extensions to choose from, how do we determine which ones will be good for our portfolio, for developing or for re-sale?
Dan Schindler (DONUTS.CO), Jeff Sass (.CLUB REGISTRY), Joe Styler (GODADDY), Monte Cahn (RIGHToftheDOT), and Crews Gore (InterNetX) will provide guidelines to succeed in making the right choices.

How to Turn a Domain Name Into a Business
A discussion of objective tasks, resources and key points that help you turn an endless list of domains into the foundation for a single online business.

Starting with the 10,000 foot view and eliminating everything that doesn’t matter, the conversation focuses on building a real business, branding, marketing, monetization and real development in the current online landscape.
