Since the beginning of the Internet, the ability to view who owns a domain name has been vital for those selling and buying domains.
And come May 25th, we’re forever losing this critical staple of information the domain industry, domain investors, and general public have become quite fond of depending upon: Whois Data.
If you haven’t heard about General Data Protection Regulation policy, as known as GDPR, and it’s impact on the domain industry and domain investors by now, then you’ve likely been asleep at the wheel. WAKE UP!
We’re less than a few weeks away from the arrival of GDPR and it’s wide-reaching impact on personal and business brands throughout the world.
And although how we live and do business online will forever be transformed by GDPR, there 5 actions to consider that I believe believe should help to prepare and weather the arrival of GDPR.
In a recent podcast, I explore and discuss the following GDPR outcomes and their respective counter actions of preparation to execute prior to the May 25th deadline:
- Why Whois Data Disappears
- Increased Domain Tools Usage
- Increased Transfer of Domain Ownership Struggles
- Increased Domain Theft
- Increased Use of Parking, Sales, and Marketplace landers
