Nominet Vision Of Future
Lesley Cowley CEO of Nominet, has revealed a vision of the future for the 2012 UK domains market. The future vision was given as part of a presentation at the UK’s Domain Channel conference on Friday February 2nd.
She says: "Greater numbers of Domain Registrations and fewer, more powerful registrars will continue to change the shape of the domain name industry in the UK. The winners in the industry will be those that have developed the strongest, most trustworthy reputations. Essentially it’s about responsible growth - something that Nominet is keen to promote and encourage."
Some of the key predictions included: Full consolidation of the Internet and Telecommunications markets – the realisation of next generation networks produces an Internet without joins Mind the Gap - leading registries leap ahead in service levels, public engagement and infrastructure investment. Fewer, more powerful registrars Dominant Domain Name portfolio holders gain direct access to advertisers Increased Government regulation and intervention Reputational scoring systems in wide use – not just for spam.About Nominet
