Almost all of the largest companies in the web products and services
industry are ICANN Accredited. These include big names such as 1&1, GoDaddy,
The Planet, Lunarpages, HostGator, et all.

Every year, scores of web services companies (webhosts, domainers, web
design companies, internet focused law firms, etc.) apply to obtain an ICANN
Accreditation. They do this for varied reasons, which range from the obvious
cost advantages to the slightly more strategic reasons such as branding, the
tapping of additional revenue opportunities, etc. For web hosting companies,
getting ICANN Accreditation is an obvious step once you cross a certain
inflection point.

But tread with caution; ICANN Accreditation is an important step. It takes
money, time and effort. Not everyone that applies for an ICANN Accreditation
really needs it. More importantly, however, not everyone that applies has
what it takes to handle the Accreditation.

There are tons of unanswered questions that companies have about ICANN

Q. How much does an ICANN Accreditation really end up costing? What are the
hidden costs?

Q. What rules and regulations will companies need to abide by if they get
ICANN Accreditation?

Q. When or at what stage should I look at getting my company ICANN

Q. Is ICANN Accreditation really worth it?

We plan on answering all these questions through a simple interactive
presentation, with case studies and DIY exercises that can help web hosting
companies objectively access their ICANN Accreditation plans.

We're the best people to talk about this topic. LogicBoxes; (through its
service Accreditation.com), has helped accredit over 15% of the world's
Registrars. We also power the domain registration software of industry
powerhouses like UK2.net, ResellerClub, Wordpress and HostGator.

The presentation will be ably supported by Tim Cole, Chief Registrar Liaison
from ICANN. Tim will be providing an ICANN's perspective on what you can
expect from the Registrar accreditation process.
