Welcome to the Parker Web Partner Show, where we provide creative solutions for creative agencies.
This week, the topic of the show is TLDs – Top Level Domains. Historically there were only a few choices like .com, .net, .org, .gov. But now there are over 1000 domains you can choose from. In this episode, we talk about when, how, and why to use various domains, what other options you have, and some things to be careful of.
00:00 – Introductions and overview.
01:35 – Developers Desk: How to spot scams that are trying to dupe you into switching your domain registrations.
05:47 – The Corner Office: Is your domain name considered intellectual property? You may be surprised.
11:27 – Roundtable: Benjamin Wilson from Deliverypath joins us today to talk about the various ways creative agencies can use domain names as a branding tool. Do you really have to register with multiple domains? Maybe. But there are other options. We also share our favorite digital tools and applications.
38:27 – Wrap Up: Reviewing everything we covered today.
If you run any type of creative agency (ad agencies, digital marketing agencies, social media agencies, etc.) we would love to hear from you. What are some of the challenges you see in your world?
