Oversee Should Have Secured The Domain Webfest.com Before Changing The Name Of Its Conference
When Oversee.net announced a few months ago it was changing its name from Domainfest to Webfest you would have thought they would have at least secured the right to use the domain Webfest.com
Afterall, Oversee.net is in the domain business and even though they have switched gears by broadening the old Domainfest into Webfest it doesn’t change the fact that Oversee is a major player in the domain business and that most of their revenue was and is still generated in the domain business
Although the formal name of the DomainFest was DomainFest Global and WebFest is Webfest Global, Oversee.net does own the domain name DomainFest.com but it doesn’t own the domain name WebFest.com
The domain name Webfest.com is owned by Scott Day.
You would have thought that Oversee before making the decision to change the name of their conference to WebFest would have acquired or at leased the domain name from Scott so a conference held by a domaining company would at least be in control have the matching domain.
Its equivalent to Google running a conference on search and if you did a Google search for the conference not finding it on the first result page.
