A discussion with the CEO of Rightside, the company behind eNom and Name.com, a whole bunch of top level domain names, and part-owner of NameJet.
My guest this week is Taryn Naidu, CEO of publicly traded domain name company Rightside. Rightside owns domain name registrars eNom and Name.com and is a part-owner of expired domain name marketplace NameJet. The company also owns a portfolio of 300,000 domains. Rightside is the biggest backend registry for new top level domain names and has launched its own TLDs, such as .Ninja and .Rocks. I ask Taryn what's happening to .com values in the face of new TLDs and which Rightside TLDs are outperforming and under-performing his expectations.
Also: Tucows stock is up big time, University of Florida gets a key domain name and .XYZ celebrates one year.
