I enjoy the global aspect of it. Domains are a key component of the internet and an infrastructure that connects billions of people. On any given day I will interact with people from all over the world. We often get so caught up in our own little bubbles and I enjoy working in an industry that reaches far outside my bubble. During my time in the domain industry, I have learned a lot about other cultures which makes me feel more connected to the world.
I like the fact that every day is a little different since I am involved with several aspects of the business. Being able to support all our different departments means I get to engage with other Lexsynergy team members on a daily basis even though I am multiple time zones away. Also, I am proud of the fact that I can now understand a strong South African accent (most of the time).
Probably that I spent my first week on the job travelling to Vienna, Austria to meet with our two founders. I had never been there before, and I really enjoyed my time exploring the city after a long day of learning the ins and outs of the domain industry.
Overall, I would say .com since it is the most popular and the foundation of the domain industry. Within the new gTLDs, I like .kids because as a mother of two young children, I appreciate the fact that they are dedicated to creating a safer online environment for kids.

There are some more well-known places that are great like The Taco Stand and City Tacos, but my favourites are the small, hole-in-wall restaurants. They are almost as common as Starbucks around here so it’s not hard to find one. My main tip is to find one that makes their tortillas in-house, then you know you’re getting a delicious, authentic taco.
