The domain name industry is quickly transforming with the arrival of automation. While automation has been a topic of conversation in the domain industry for some time now, its effects are starting to become clear in terms of cost savings, time savings, and overall improved flow of work.
As more businesses look to automate their processes to save time and reduce manual work that can be both costly and inefficient, the affects on the domain name industry in the near future cannot be ignored. In the following years – and especially in 2023 – the impact will be particularly noticeable.
The biggest benefit that automation technology will bring to domain name industry is efficiency. Automation can help reduce manual errors, save time for domain administrators, reduce user frustration when registering, transferring, and renewing domains, as well as help with domain registration compliance.
Automation will also play a pivotal role when it comes to helping improve the security of domain names. With automated alerts coming from Registries and Registrars whenever registration settings are altered or malicious attempts are made, domain administrators can be aware of potential security threats and act accordingly.
Indeed, not only are the domain administrators able to work more efficiently, the entire registration process can become smoother and faster. Automation can help ensure that customers have faster and better responses to their requests and inquiries, which in turn increases customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Furthermore, automation will help reduce the costs associated with domain name management services. Automated domain registration could potentially reduce management fees associated with domains. Other potential cost savings could come from automated email reminders about expiration dates and even automated renewal of domain names before they expire.
Finally, automation technology presents some unique opportunities to enhance domain management experiences. For example, software that can automatically suggest related domain names at registration time so users can quickly purchase and secure multiple related domains with a single transaction.
All these advancements, combined with other new technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain are revolutionizing the domain name industry. By 2023, it seems clear that the domain name industry will have been reshaped and transformed – for the better – by automation.
