Next Wednesday it’s the annual Nominet .uk registrar conference. The conference is being held at Wembley Stadium, and while it’s unlikely to be most exciting event that particular venue has ever hosted, it is a chance for all the .uk registrars (like 123-reg) to get together and catch up on the latest in the industry.
A few of us from 123-reg are heading along to find out what’s happening in the world of .uk domain names and, in a first for us, I’m hoping to live blog things as they happen.
I’ve been working in this industry for a year or so now, but the workings of Nominet are still a bit of a mystery to me. My aim is to understand a bit more about how the organisation responsible for taking care of .uk domain names works. By covering the event here I’ll try and help you understand it too.
Having said that, I’ve never covered an event like this before, so to some extent I’ll be making it up as I go along. That’s assuming, of course, the Wi-Fi works, my laptop’s battery doesn’t die and/or my mobile has a decent signal. If it goes to plan, look for posts, pictures and my thoughts, right here.
Have your say too
I’ll try and take notice of your feedback too, so please leave your comments either now or on the day. Got a burning question you want me to put to one of the panels? Let me know and I’ll do my best.
