    Brandsight Webinar: 2018 Domain Name Year in Review

    Not unlike previous years, 2018 was an eventful one for the domain name industry. Over the course of last year, we saw significant changes to WHOIS resulting from GDPR which has had a major impact on domain name professionals, continued M&A activity, and a potential price increase for .COM domains on the horizon. We also saw an increase in UDRP filings, record-breaking sales for new gTLDs, and over a million domains seized by law enforcement.

    With so much to follow, please join Matt Serlin and Elisa Cooper on February 20 at 10am PT / 1pm as they review and provide their perspectives on the top 10 biggest domain news stories from 2018, including:

    • GDPR and its impact on the domain name ecosystem and brand protection
    • The resurgence of interest in homograph domain names
    • Potential price increases for .COM registrations
    • Much, much more

    And of course, they’ll be bringing out their crystal ball to make their predictions for 2019 during this 60-minute webinar which will conclude with an interactive Q&A.
