What We Learned From Our First Year as a ClimateSmart Business https://blog.webnames.ca/what-we-learned-during-our-first-year-as-a-climatesmart-business/ Tue, 29 May 2018 14:19:50 +0000 https://blog.webnames.ca/?p=17094 We’re excited to be entering our second year of being a certified ClimateSmart business.

Having recently renewed our certification for 2018, I thought I would share some of our learnings and findings now that we have year over year data to sift through, as opposed to last year when we established our baseline.

And that’s a not a bad thing. With 500+ gTLDs now available, not including country-code extensions, there is a domain out there for almost about every conceivable vertical.  And many of these domains have limited or narrow use cases.
