For Your Viewing Pleasure: The Practicalities of a New Domain Launch


If you weren't able to attend Afilias CMO Roland LaPlante's recent webinar on "The Practicalities of a New Domain Launch," you can watch it here. Since there's a lot more to launching a new top-level domain than coming up with a unique gTLD, it's helpful to know what issues you'll need to have squared away before launching one (or before applying to ICANN to have one). This webinar was designed to help you by sharing what Afilias learned from the original New gTLD launch (.INFO) and New gTLD launches since then.
