DomainSherpa interviews successful domain name investors and entrepreneurs – people we call Sherpas – who share their strategies and tactics to help you be more successful. Hosted by Michael Cyger.
If you’re tired of your registrar nickel-and-diming you for features or being slow as molasses to add improvement or fix bugs, you can do something about it: build your own registrar.
Today’s guest did exactly that, from the ground up.
You’ll hear what is required to build a registrar, how he chose his technology stack, how long the process takes, and what decisions are required for branding and marketing. You’ll also learn about his unique business model for generating revenue.
