About Domain Name Basics


My name is Tobias, and I have started in the domain industry more than ten years ago. Over that time, I learned a lot of this business, and I steadily expanded my knowledge. From the absolute basics of the domain name system to technical implementations to contract negotiations and business development as well as policy development and writing RFCs.

However, I wouldn't consider myself an expert or veteran because you never finish learning.

During my time in this industry, I have seen many newcomers struggling with this business's complexity. Therefore I decided in 2016 to summarize interesting and essential topics in presentations to make it easier for beginners to deal with the complexity. Of course, the slide decks cannot cover all details, but they will help to get a good overview.

I now wrote more than ten presentations on different topics, and I wish all newcomers and readers of my slides all the best.
