The Technology Business Alliance of Nevada is proactively fostering technology business growth in Nevada. TBAN is dedicated to assisting technology-based startups, emerging and growth companies in finding the talent, customers and financing needed to be successful.
“Each month, we host a luncheon for those in the #VegasTech community to attend,” said TBAN president Alexis Glaser. “On July 16, 2014, we are thrilled to welcome Jim Trevino from Dot Vegas as our speaker. The things their team is doing here in Las Vegas is exciting. We want all the tech entrepreneurs and startups to know about it!”
Since January 2014, new city-specific domain names have started to be issued and over 60 cities have received approval for their own domains so far. The new ‘.city’ names are expected to help local enterprises boost their web presence, improve their online search rankings and increase their sales by directing locals and tourists to relevant nearby businesses.
The .Vegas top level domain is the result of seven years of hard work with the community and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the governing body of the Internet, as well as considerable personal investment.
A top level domain, or ‘TLD’ as it is better known, is that part of the web address that comes after the right of the dot. .Com, .Net, .Org, and now .Vegas are examples of TLDs.
“In January, 2014, Dot Vegas, Inc. was awarded the .Vegas top-level domain by ICANN,” explains Jim Trevino, President and CEO of Dot Vegas Inc., in a previous VegasTech.com interview. “This began the process of incorporating .Vegas into the Internet and sets the stage for people and organizations anywhere in the world to have the opportunity to register a domain name ending in .Vegas beginning mid-summer 2014.”
On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, Jim Trevino and the Dot Vegas team will be at Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse from 11:30-1:30 to talk about this exciting time for tech companies here in Las Vegas.
“The paradigm shift with Internet addressing via the introduction of more than 900 new top-level domains is new to all of us, even to companies like Dot Vegas, but it’s also very exciting,” Jim Trevino said. “We are working hard right now to educate both companies and individuals about these changes and how the expansion of top level domains will affect the way everyone navigates the Internet.”
“We are especially pleased to share our message with the TBAN tech-savvy audience because the sweeping changes in SEO, online revenue generation, and branding have implications well beyond .vegas. There is real opportunity with the new top-level domains coming to market, and we need the creativity and drive of startups, entrepreneurs, techies, and even big businesses to help us all navigate this new territory in the best ways possible,” he said.
