You have to love skiing to know skiing: Q and A with .SKI co-founder Rob Rozicki

Rozicki always had sweet style.

Rozicki always had a super-sweet style sense.

Some people start a business venture because they have a good idea, and that’s great. But other people start a business venture because they have a good idea and a love for skiing, and that’s even better. Such is the case with .SKI co-founder and Senior Vice President of Starting Dot, Rob Rozicki. Rozicki’s love for skiing goes way, way back (check out the commitment to ski safety in the photo above).

As co-founder of .SKI, Rozicki’s been able to take his passion for creating a digital community network for .SKI and help launch .ARCHI and .BIO, which are also heavily community-based New Domains.

Rozicki took some time to talk to us about Starting Dot’s international reach, the amazing .ARCHI marketing campaign and, of course, skiing. And more skiing. Oh, and there’s another glorious kid photo in there, too.

‘People eat Berliners’ and other mind-blowing reasons .BERLIN is one of the most popular New Domains: a Q and A with the CEO of .BERLIN


When David Bowie famously recorded the popular hit “Heroes” in Berlin, he was probably inspired by the city’s true heroes, Berliners – the famous, delicious jelly-filled pastries. Heroically delicious pastries, you might say. Okay, so Bowie was actually inspired by the people of Berlin – the “other” Berliners – and it’s easy to see why. Berlin is more than just delicious pastries; it’s a global metropolis, offering cutting-edge modern architecture, bangin’ techno, and David Hasselhoff. And like the city of Berlin, the domain .BERLIN is hot to death. We caught up with .BERLIN CEO Dirk Krischenowski to talk the Hoff, swimming BBQ donuts (you read that right), dotBerlin’s geographic connection to “Heroes” and how you can eat a Berliner and be one at the same time.

Curb election spending with a .DEMOCRAT

Right now, during the intensity (insanity?) of a midterm election, .DEMOCRAT domain names are only $24.99.

The easy sell here is that with $7 billion spent during the 2012 Presidential cycle, then what’s $24.99 for a .DEMOCRAT domain?  But the truth is that only a very small percentage of candidates have even a thousand bucks—let alone a BILLION—to spend on their campaigns, so before you drop a single dime, make sure you’ve got the right domain and the right website.

Learn everything you need to know about .KIWI and the Commonwealth Games

PrintEver since .KIWI let us race a bobsled to celebrate a powerhouse New Domain sponsorship of the New Zealand Olympic bobsledding team (.KIWI,, .XYZ, .NINJA, .BUZZ, .CLUB .HIV), we’ve been keeping a close eye on what they’re up to. Turns out we’ve been watching for good reason: the .KIWI team is also sponsoring the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this year.

If you’re a New Zealander, .KIWI sponsoring the Commonwealth Games probably seems like a genius idea. Kiwis love sports and they love the Commonwealth Games. If you’re American, you might be asking what we were asking—what are the Commonwealth Games?

Turns out that the Commonwealth of Nations, a group of 54 member states (most of which are former members of the British Empire), has been throwing a huge sporting event every four years without America. Can you believe it? The nerve. We’re truly hurt guys.

If you’re like us, you might want to know more about the Commonwealth Games. Here’s the five-minute breakdown:

The World Needs You to Get Your .DANCE On


“If you can teach people to dance, it behooves you to save people from those who can’t.” -Pretty Much Anyone Who’s Ever Been on a Dance Floor

Talented people, it’s time to share your skills. Yes, you might have a website for your dance academy or instructor studio, but we think they’re getting lost in the shuffle … or two step or the WWW (Wild Web-based Whirl) of the Internet.

It’s time to stand out because people need you. Not just those who can’t dance and are still out there and dangerous to others whenever the Ramones come on, but for those girlfriends, wives, first dates, and prom crushes who have been left to hunker down and hope their partner doesn’t Disco Sprinkle during a waltz. How many times will the drunken Mony Mony have to suffice as the one time you can get your rhythm impaired partner on the dance floor?

Fourteen New Domains have 10,000 registrations. Who’s next?

New Domains are still in their infancy, but we’re already seeing a lot of growth in the number of New Domain registrations. offers an in-depth look at the New Domains that are available for registration, including which New Domains are domain-ating (see what we did there?) the market, like .GURU, and which New Domains are growing from month-to-month. Altogether (according to this data), there are almost half a million New Domain registrations to date (in mid-April 2014).

It’s difficult to compare New Domains to one another in terms of growth, since each extension has a different timeline—including different dates of sunrise start, landrush start (if there was a landrush) and date of general availability—but a number of first-launched New Domains have passed the 10,000 registration mark, which is a milestone a lot of industry analysts are celebrating because it shows a definite steady growth pattern and an undeniable public interest in the New Domains.

Here are five of the New Domains leading in growth, with over 10,000 registrations, followed by five extensions we have our eye on that are nearing that mark quickly.
