Session 3A (Venue: tbc)

Marketing: SMM Practices and Website Turbocharging

Who wouldn’t want every single visitor to their website to make a purchase (or three), before they leave? Unfortunately, in the real world, we know average website conversion rates hover between 2 and 10% depending on the industry and how efficiently the site is being run; and yes, Social Media Marketing campaign are yet another challenge. Members will discuss ways to boost up their online visibility and efficiency of their resources.


Session 3B (Venue: tbc)

Technical: Passive DNS

While this technology’s initial intentions were mainly focused on preventing malware and avoiding trademark issues, phishing and email policy violations, 15 years after its creation there are a lot of new ways to exploit the full potential of passive DNS. Techies, this is your call now.

  • Jan Horak ‖ Gransy
  • Paul Vixie ‖ Farsight Security

Session 4A (Venue: tbc)

Marketing: ccTLD Registry as a Brand

You have probably noticed that your ccTLD’s SEO value is on the rise….how come you haven’t? Either way, some domain industry pundits and gurus will assure you of a potentially high value of your brand and then probably charge you a fortune to explain what you are intuitively aware of. The session will allow Members to share their brand-building and promotion strategies


Session 4B (Venue: tbc)

Technical: Deconstructing DNSSEC for Good

In Woody Allen’s classical ‘Deconstructing Harry’ the main character goes, “The scary thing is that records are made to be broken”. At APTLD, we have a good sense of humor but are not ready to humor of insecurity, so time and again we revisit DNSSEC and its deployment to keep ourselves abreast of what else can be done to improve Members’ performance in this regard.

Administrative: How to Govern a ccTLD in Challenging Times?

Whether big or small, ccTLD registries run cost/benefit assessments and keep wondering how to build efficient operation. The session focuses on a critical matter of everyone’s concern –remember Cicero’s “Frugality includes all the other virtues”? Or was it Jeff Bezos’s?


Session 6B (Venue: tbc)

Security: Before the Levee Breaks: Business Continuity, Privacy and Security Risk Management in a Pandemic

As registries adjust to the "new normal" in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to quickly take stock of where they stand on privacy and security risk. Even in these unusual circumstances, regardless of their sizes and sophistication, they continue to be expected to act with reasonable care and comply with their public commitments and domestic regulatory obligations and best international practices.

13:00-14:00 Lunch

Session 7A (Venue: tbc)

Marketing: How to Understand and Inspire Your Customer

Inspiring a customer to act is your main priority, for it’s what marketers are designed to do. Ours is an industry where there’s a clear line between success and failure, so Members are invited to share perspectives to build on the former and avoid the latter.
