Portrait of Tobias Sattler

👋 Hi, I am Tobias Sattler

Board Member | Product & Tech Leader | Founder | Executive Advisor | Domain Expert

I was born in 1982 in the lovely city of Munich, Germany. Back in the day, history, natural sciences, and computers always fascinated me. Later on, my interest in programming ignited, and I implemented and directed smaller hobby projects.

At Siemens, I later learned the fundamentals of software engineering. Then I was drawn to the German Armed Forces, where I supported the SAP implementation and HR digitalization. After my service, I led the united-domains reseller subsidiary to restructure the value chain, set up a new team, and generate new growth. Eventually, I joined the united-domains Extended Management Team and later been part of the Board of Management—spearheaded technology and product management. I partnered with my fellow board members to shape our strategic direction and push our growth.

Over the years, I steadily expanded my skills and responsibilities and broadened my focus. As a result, my expertise lies in developing corporate strategy, building operational structures, optimizing business processes, and increasing operational efficiency.

Since the end of 2021, I have been an independent Executive Advisor, supporting companies developing their strategy and achieving their goals. In 2022, I further joined the Board of Management of neubau kompass—driving our growth with my fellow board members.

With over 20 years of hands-on experience in leading technology organizations, work is more than just a job for me. As an executive, I love to empower and support my team to develop great products. Helping customers to realize their ideas makes me happy.

Apart from that, I am an active member of the Internet community:

Beyond that, I am an author of an RFC, 5+ IETF Internet-Drafts, and 15+ articles and love to support others. Therefore, I am a supporting Amnesty International member, the German Cancer Aid, Caritas, the German Red Cross, WWF, and Unicef.

During the Corona pandemic, I started a master's degree in E-Commerce and Online Marketing in 2020, finishing in early 2022.

What else to say: I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, and walking in my spare time.

If you have any questions that I can help with, please feel free to reach out on LinkedIn or Twitter. I look forward to speaking with you!

Publications, Projects, and Presentations

Internet Standards

The IETF is the premier Internet standards organization. It follows open and well-documented processes for setting these standards. This is the recent RFC that I authored.

Registry Maintenance Notifications for the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)
RFC 9167 | DOI 10.17487/RFC9167 | Published December 2021
This document describes an Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) extension called "Registry Maintenance Notification", which is used by EPP servers to notify EPP clients and allow EPP clients to query EPP servers regarding maintenance events.

Internet Drafts

These are other IETF drafts that I authored. (sorted alphabetically)


These are recent articles that I wrote about IT, Hosting, Domain Names, and other stuff.

CyberSec — Online Introduction

I founded CyberSec in 2021. Various slide decks provide an overview and introduction for newcomers in the cybersecurity space and interested parties.

MyNextEvent — Event Calendar

In 2017 I spun off a hobby project from 2010 to summarize domain, hosting, and Internet events. With MyNextEvents, I created a very comprehensive online calendar that covers many international and regional conferences. I passed on this project to the i2coalition in 2021 to let it grow even further.

Domain Name Basics — Online Training

In 2016 I founded Domain Name Basics. It is a series of presentations meant to be an overview and training material for newcomers in the domain name industry. This comprehensive collection consists of 20 slide decks that I handed over to the i2coalition at the end of 2021.

Domain-Stammtisch Munich — Event

In 2016 I founded Domain-Stammtisch Munich. It was a privately organized, open meeting of the domain industry twice a year. In 8 editions with about 115 participants, there were many interesting conversations and new contacts. However, after the general interest declined, we stopped the Domain-Stammtisch München in 2019.
