About us

Who is Jean Guillon

Born in the seventies, ​I started working in the domain name business as soon as I finished my studies. In those days we worried about developing websites, Search Engine Optimization and sometimes...Domain Names. With far too many diplomas in 3 different languages, I then wanted to do "something different and fun". Domain names offered a playfield which became the link I was looking for between the Internet and Communication: a domain name is an online identity and new gTLDs are the awaited expansion of these identities. For more details about me, you can check my experience as a Registrant, a retail and corporate Registrar and a Registry on Guillon.com. I am a French native.

A Unique Experience

I like to say that I have been a "Registrant", a "Registrar" and a "Registry". Prior to becoming a new gTLD Consultant, I had the chance to work as a Registrant to organize and manage large domain name portfolios for major Corporations, I held different positions at Corporate and Retail Registrars and launched the .EU Registry.
Then came the new gTLDs and I started selling projects and preparing several new gTLD applications.
Project dotVinum for wine registries was born too.

A Fantastic Network

LinkedIn

The ICANN new gTLD program offers many opportunities to meet but attending ICANN conferences has a cost so I quickly came to believe that an online Network should be created. The new gTLD LinkedIn group is a networking group to that was created just for that reason: a place dedicated to interested parties which desperately need to follow the new gTLD thread. Today, it is the largest group that exists on the subject of "new generic Top-Level Domains" and, as its moderator, I publish daily.

The gTLD.club

The gTLD.club is a publication platform where I post all contents found during the day. These NEWS are sent, with the direct link to the information, in the previous day's newsletter. The Newsletter is sent every night at 8:00 PM CET. To follow the daily information related to new gTLDs, this is the Newsletter to subscribe to.

What about Jovenet Consulting?
The reason why I secured Jovenet as a Trademark is of no interest but it requires a Name to set up a company, and as a Consultant, I believe that my Company name - associated to the right domain name extension - would offer a better know how: Jovenet Consulting was born. Jovenet Consulting offers several services:
  1. New gTLD study: personalized study for .BRAND new gTLD applicants.
  2. New gTLD promotion services: this offer is dedicated to any registry willing to do a serious promotion of its new domain names.
