It's all about domains is a series of interviews with professionals from the DNS ecosystem. The series is produced by InterNetX and is designed to explore themes related to DNS and domain names with experts from various fields such as marketing, business, aftermarket, law, policy-making and investment, network, IT, and DNS security. The first interview was published in March 2021. The interviews are published in English and German.


The interviews are structured in a Q&A format. After a brief initial introduction about the interviewee, the interviews usually begin with questions highlighting the guest's background and current work before digging into their expertise with questions aimed at relevant technical and specialized issues.
