In loving memory of our friend Stephane Van Gelder

« Back to the news page

It is with deep sadness that we learnt of the passing of Stephane Van Gelder, a valued friend, author of the ‘.eu book, the first decade’ and member of our strategic committee.

Stephane has been active within the domain name industry since 1999, when he cofounded and managed Indom, a once leading B2B registrar in France. Stephane led both a decorated life and career, serving as a sports commentator, software engineer, and holding high-level positions at NBT France and StartingDot, all the while carrying out his passion for motorsports.

The video published to our YouTube channel is meant to remember some of the moments we spent together.

We are very appreciative of Stephane’s friendship and commitment over the years, and would like to extend our deepest condolences to his loved ones.
