The Climb To The Top: A Conversation with Andrew Rosener

Andrew Rosener didn’t come up with the term “the Rosener Equation” for his valuation methodology: the rest of the industry did. He is behind some of the biggest deals in domaining – including selling Prime.com to Amazon, Zoom.com to Zoom, and X.com to Elon Musk. Awarded Broker of the Year for six consecutive years and featured on renowned life-hacker Tim Ferriss’s podcast, Drew has reinvented domain valuation methodology, investing strategy, and figuring out what’s about to rock the digital world next—so join him for a peek under the hood of his massively-successful domaining and brokerage machine.

NamesCon Global ❤️ CloudFest USA

Bringing the NamesCon and CloudFest USA communities together worked brilliantly—we’re only wondering why we didn’t think of it sooner! Here’s what you can gain by connecting with North America’s cloud computing leaders:

Registrars have not only millions of domains under management: they also own many premium domains, which the NamesCon community can help them turn into a proper business vertical

CloudFest USA’s core audience of MSPs and CSPs hold the keys to millions of end customers and SMBs: these seem like companies that motivated domain sellers would REALLY want to meet

CloudFest USA attendees are experts in selling to SMBs and larger end customers—in other words, the buyers in the largest domain deals

Many NamesCon partners sell into both domaining and Cloud markets—why not reach both in one place?
