For the past 15 years, Second Gen and its subsidiaries have invested heavily in the Top-Level-Domain (TLD) Industry.  In 2003, they were early pioneers in the industry when they applied for and were awarded the .JOBS TLD.  At that time, .JOBS was one of only 14 TLDs in the world. Second Gen began working with NAR 8 years ago to secure a TLD in the real estate space and launched .REALTOR last fall.  Today, Second Gen is the Registry Operator for the .Jobs, .Career, .REALTOR, .RealEstate, and .MED TLDs.  Today there are 100’s of TLDs and soon there will be thousands.

Matthew is an expert in the Domain Name System (DNS) and internet policy.  When he’s not traveling the world for his work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three young kids at their home in Shaker Heights, OH.
