From the series of DomainX workshops across India, It was 22nd April 2016 when DomainX organized an Internet Awareness workshop for students of Amritsar College of Engineering and Technology, Amritsar. The main aim of this workshop was to make the students aware of the power of domain names, IT Laws, Copyrighting and Scope of Blogging.
This workshop was solely the result of the efforts made by DomainX Events team whereas the President of Domain Name Owners Association of India, Manmeet Pal Singh was present at the event. Also I would like to thank the ACET, Amritsar college authorities for giving us this opportunity to speak.
I would also like to thank our sponsors GoDaddy for sponsoring free .in domain names to students, MicroHost for free web hosting for students, .club for sponsoring Virat Kohli Coffee Mugs. Last but not least, the whole DomainX community for backing us up. DomainX is going to hold its International Domain Name conference on 6th & 7th of August 2016. Reserve your seats now.
As a part of this amazing organization I also got a chance to speak there about Blogging and its Scope.
Let us move towards the workshop. This workshop consists of 4 different sessions. The four sessions were delivered by:
- Domain Names Awareness by Manmeet Pal Singh Mahal ( President of Domain Name Owners Association of India).
- Domain and .Club awareness session by Nivu Hussain (Marketing Head .Club registry India)
- Awareness of IT & Cyber Law by Rodney D. Ryder (Cyber Law Consultant, Advisor to Govt. of India in IT Law)
- Basics & Scope of Blogging by Abhishek Jain (Founder of Rusty Blogger)
This awesome session starts with the powerful words of the top domainer of India Mr. Manmeet.
He presented his vision about the big domain name industry and made the students aware about the purchasing & selling of domains.
This was an entirely new field for the students and they were keen to know about more and more about the domain name industry.
This was a great learning experience for each one of us. Mr. Ryder attentively taking delight in the session.
Manmeet has really made the session live and his knowledge about the domain name industry provided a great vision to everyone present in the seminar hall.
Next Session was delivered by Nivu Hussain from .Club registry. He told us about each and everything about the use of Domain names in daily life.
Students interacting with the speakers.
Next Session was one of the life changing sessions of my life. Mr. Rodney D. Ryder told us about the hidden truths of cyber law. Do’s and Don’ts while setting up your online business.
He told us about the trademarks, copyrights and similar names on the web.
Then comes my session where I delivered an awareness workshop on blogging.
There was a great response from the students. They want to learn and grow with new opportunities but there was no one to mentor them.
.Club sponsored Virat Kohli Coffee Mugs to the students. Students were excited to get these Goodies.
I also distributed Rusty Blogger’s T-Shirts to the ones who were replying to the interactions. We also distributed Free .in Domain Name & Hosting sponsored by GoDaddy.com & MicroHost.com respectively.
In the end I would like to thank each and everyone who attended this workshop. I have learnt a lot from this workshop and hope you too. If you still have some doubts or want to know more then comment box is waiting for you.
