What do Nic Cage and Miley Cyrus have in common? This Q and A with Radix’s business head Sandeep Ramchandani



As New Domains continue to enter the digital landscape, maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed by all the options. With so many different TLD categories, from geographic to business to off-beat New Domains, what do you do when you feel like you just don’t fit in?

Sandeep Ramchandani, business head at Radix (a New Domain portfolio registry operating 28 New Domains), took some time to talk to us about the upcoming launch of .WEBSITE, a New Domain meant specifically for those who want the advantage of owning a more targeted and relevant domain name without having to commit to a specific market definition.

He also talked to us about Nic Cage’s acting prowess, why it’s so awesome to be based in both Mumbai and Dubai, and the Miley Cyrus marketing edge. (You’ll want to see that.)  

Paving the way for New Domains: A short Q and A with .build CEO George Minardos


Every great idea starts on the ground floor, and for George Minardos, founder and CEO of the New Domain .build, the ground floor was a big idea to provide more Web space for the building industry.

From applicant to registry operator, Minardos has watched the potential for .build grow into an ever-expanding digital community, offering domains to all building-related industries and professionals, no matter which definition of “build” these industries and professionals choose. Minardos was kind enough to sit down with us and discuss this exciting New Domain, it’s inception, Minardos’ lifetime love of building, and the almost $8 trillion dollar industry this dynamic domain serves.

.SCOT is leading the way for cultural New Domains


Last week Dot Scot Registry reached a deal ensuring the release of .SCOT in the summer of 2014, a year earlier than previously expected. .SCOT has been getting a lot of attention since the announcement and it’s easy to see why: This New Domain perfectly illustrates the amazing capacity of cultural domains to create a Web identity for diasporas, cultures, and countries that didn’t have their own webspace before.

.SCOT has also had a lot of public support from within the Scottish community during the entire application process, including from First Minister Alex Salmond. So why is the land of haggis, Robert Burns, Scotch, golf and most importantly, Sir Sean Connery (who has been at the head of the decade-long campaign for .SCOT), so excited for this New Domain?
