Q Domain Analytics - Seeing the wood for the trees

Making sense of the amount of data we gather every day is overwhelming. Like in every industry, ours involves collecting and collating data from many sources. Often formatted and presented in different ways. Then trying to make business decisions based on the results.

For Registries and TLDs, keeping up with the day-to-day data is a big job. Never mind tracking, analysing and forecasting the commercial campaigns with their channel partners

iQ Domain Analytics was created because we realised the need for good business intelligence to properly manage and grow a namespace. To run a good business, you need to know the core of your registry.
