An independent domain name Consultant

My experience as a Corporate Registrant then working for Corporate and Retail Registrars allows me to offer experienced independent consulting (I do not sell domain names). One day per week I work within your company dealing directly with your people to solve problems related to domain names:
  • I help brands face the new gTLD wave with most of their questions:
    • "Who" is doing "what" in my industry?
    • How do I prepare before a new domain name extension is launching?
    • How do I track a launching?
    • Which domain names should I (or not) register?
    • How should I protect my brands and where do I start?
    • What is the use of the Trademark Clearinghouse? How do I proceed?
  • Domain name monitoring;
  • Domain name brokerage services;
  • I write domain name policies;
  • I help recover domain names: it is not just a matter of paying a cyber squatter or a domainer. It happens the right speech solves many problems according to who calls and who picks up the phone;
  • Internal organization within the company for large domain name portfolios: how to organize? Who does what? How to simplify the registration process? With coming new gTLDs, how to centralize the domain name activity?
  • Change Registrar (and monitor the changing if necessary);
  • Domain name portfolio analysis and cost killing.

What I do not do:

  • I do not work for free.


The LinkedIn "new generic Top-Level Domains" is a networking group where to share knowledge, info, projects and experience with 1500+ members. This group is the perfect place to:
  • Learn more about new gTLDs;
  • Ask your questions and get answers from professionals from the industry and new gTLD applicants;
  • Find partners (legal, technical, financial, communication, auctions...);
  • Find investors in your TLD;
  • Let the world know you are applying for a new gTLD or you plan to do so;
  • Follow public comments and objections.
