Hello! I am particularly interested in Internet governance: the network is managed by a US organization where I am particularly active. I study technological developments and geopolitical issues, economic considerations with a strong interest in the consequences for the end user, whoever they may be. I am a member of ICANN, Unicode, and AFNIC.

Domain Name Industry

Having completed my PhD thesis with the financial help of a domain name registrar, I am interested in the Sino-American activity of buying and reselling domain names.

Having completed my PhD thesis with the financial help of a domain name registrar, I am interested in the Sino-American activity of buying and reselling domain names. This economy, weighing several billion dollars, involves names with high potential (short names, current, technological,...) and have made it possible to create an economy for domainers, the name given to individual companies, but also countries that have benefited from the potential of this activity (e.g.: .TV, Tuvalu, .IO, Chagos Islands, .ME, Montenegro, ...).

As part of my thesis, I have worked on the criteria of acceptance for emojis proposals by the Unicode consortium. I am working on the creation of a decision tree. In addition, I am interested in creating improved emojis to defend a cause such as those featuring the Tokyo Tower, French fries or, as here, a endemic house.

Internet Governance and global economy : valuation method of domain names as intangible assets

PhD

he thesis aims to define a model for valuing domain names, these digital identifiers on the Internet. Digital identifiers that can be likened to advanced serial numbers, domain names have been diverted from their main function over the past thirty years, until today they have become intangible assets that are the subject of major transactions, reaching several million dollars.From the creation of domain name extensions to their delegation, we will see how naming charters and Internet governance have affected the nature and positioning of domain names from a technical and economic point of view. In a second step we will look at the different existing valuation methods and select one in order to apply it to domain names.As part of the associated experimentation, we will seek to define value trends, correlations and determine whether the value of domain names is predictive. Finally, we will propose a method for valuing domain names based on this experimentation as well as various tools to better manage a fleet of domain names, as is often the case in large companies.

CONFERE, Hongrie, 2018-07-05

Domain Names are intangible assets used by every Internet users since 1986. Their value, correlated to their importance for the communication field and the information system. But while we are in a period where we connect factories to the Internet, the domain name remains the link between the company and the Internet. It is thus a need for decision makers to have a tool ready to use.

Trust on the Internet: How the French ccTLD .FR Went From a Remarkable to a Speculative System

IARIA INTERNET 2017, France, 2017-07-24 - The Ninth International Conference on Evolving Internet - 2017

The Domain Name System (DNS), was invented in 1983 because it was too hard for the human brain to memorize IP addresses. The DNS works as a phone directory, setting a link between letters, the domain name, and an IP address. Layered and structured since its creation, the domain name made it possible to identify the linked resource and to have confidence in its content. However, this classification system was quickly replaced a big bang of naming possibilities, where the first comer is the first and sole served. This survey aims to study the repercussing of the naming rules of the French ccTLD, the .FR. As an introduction and in section I, we will see how an area of trust has been created through the “.FR”. Then, through the section III and IV, how the easing of registration and use rules initiated confusion over the identification and trust by the domain name. Finally, we propose three ways to create the identification-trust link.
