DomainSponsor Opens Registration, Announces Agenda for DOMAINfest Europe Conference in Prague [news release]

Unique Mixture of Learning, Networking and Fun

LOS ANGELES, Calif. and FRANKFURT, Germany (May 26) — DomainSponsor®, the domain monetization business of Oversee.net® and organizer of the DOMAINfest® series of conferences, today announced the agenda for DOMAINfest Europe. The event is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, October 6 and 7, 2010, at the Hotel InterContinental in Prague, Czech Republic.

Based on the success of its DOMAINfest Global conference held each year in southern California, DomainSponsor expanded the DOMAINfest franchise in 2010 with a series of new regional events designed to make DOMAINfest’s highly regarded learning and networking opportunities more accessible to regional domain investors and internet marketing experts. Events in 2010 will include New York City and Prague; DOMAINfest Fort Lauderdale was held on May 13, 2010.

The DOMAINfest franchise is dedicated to the success of domain publishers worldwide. As with all DOMAINfest events, the European conference will combine fun and networking with in-depth discussions on how to increase the value of Internet real estate.

“Our Prague agenda facilitates important discussions around highly relevant topics for European domain investors, said Oversee.net Senior Vice President Peter Celeste. “At the same time, it is designed to help attendees build high quality relationships that will pay dividends well beyond the end of our two-day conference. From start to finish, our goal is to create an atmosphere and experience that fits with our DOMAINfest Europe theme: Building Bridges. Building Success. And for the first time ever, we will offer free on-site interpreters in select languages to help the largest groups of non-English speaking guests get the most out of their DOMAINfest experience.”

Conference Agenda

DOMAINfest Europe will open Wednesday, October 6, with remarks by Jeff Kupietzky, CEO and President of Oversee.net, followed by a soon-to-be-announced keynote presentation.
That afternoon, during two-hour Power Networking sessions, attendees are free to walk around the conference room and meet one-on-one and in small groups with subject matter experts on the following topics:

European ccTLD and IDN Opportunities
Where should domain investors be concentrating their buying efforts? For corporate brand managers, do ccTLD and IDN domains represent a fast, easy way to penetrate into new markets? Attendees can refine their ccTLD and IDN plans by joining fellow attendees and respected experts in discussing these important questions.

Alternative Ways to Monetize Domain Traffic
Attendees can listen and learn from each other and from invited experts about monetization alternatives such as CPA, affiliate networks, and lead generation. Discussions will also center on website development technology, content sources and service providers effective in monetizing traffic originating from specific regions of Europe and the world.

Selecting Keywords That Produce Traffic

Experts will discuss European keyword tools and strategies that can help maximize the success of SEO, SEM, and domain name buying efforts. Panelists will focus on the most efficient and effective tactics and techniques for selecting what keywords to include in domain name purchases, site content, meta tags, and ad campaigns.

European Legal Issues Impacting Domain Investors
This is an opportunity to get free advice on the latest European legal and tax issues impacting domain investment decisions. Discussions with the experts will help attendees protect domain name assets and learn how to approach legal and regulatory issues.

After the Power Networking sessions, the Wednesday agenda includes a Moniker Live Domain Auction followed by a networking dinner party at an historic Prague venue.
