Watch the new TLD session from last week’s WHD.usa.

I thought the new TLD panel at last week’s WHD.usa conference in Phoenix was one of the best I’ve seen on the topic. I give a lot of credit to Paul Mockapetris (inventor of DNS and SMTP) for asking tough questions in a non-defensive way. It probably also helped to have this discussion away from a domain name conference.

The video embedded below was recorded by InterNetX. It picks up a few minutes into the session. A few points of interest are:

appx 6:00 minutes – Discussion about the lack of demand for IDNs
13:55 – Have any new TLDs crashed and burned?
32:00 – Discussion about plural and singular top level domains

The panelists, from left to right:

Joel Rasquinha, Radix
Crews Gore, InterNetX
Vern Jurovich, Uniregistry
Brad Lemire, Sedo
Colin Campbell, .Club
Paul Mockapetris, Moderator (on stool)
