The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) holds quarterly meetings for the global domain community to discuss policy development, elect leaders and shape the future course of the domain industry that will affect all of us.
The multi-stakeholder model ensures that all participants irrespective of economic power can make their voice heard.
ICANN meetings are open to all and attract a special community comprising large domain registrars, hosting providers, politicians, lawyers and human right activists.
The event is much less commercial than typical trade shows. The focus is on discussion and exchange, but the gala events are famous as well.
The week-long ICANN 56 Copenhagen meeting sponsored by the Danish Business Association was held in the Bella Center exhibition center.
CM4all once again attended the ICANN event to meet with new potential customers as well as existing customers who are strongly engaged in the domain community.
CM4all provides substantial value added to domain registrars and hosting providers by bundling the special domain limited edition with all domains sold. ARPU and customer retention are greatly enhanced by offering a domain plus a website in a convenient package.
We are already looking forward to the next ICANN event, the GDD industry summit in Madrid.
