On June 25th, 2020, Robert made the decision to exit Registry Australia, the company he co-founded. It all began in March 2017, when Robert purchased the domain name Registry.com.au for $8250. Since then, he’s learned a lot about managing a successful company and the many personalities within it. Robert continues to run Domainer and DBR as he contemplates his next business venture.

Domainer History

Domainer.com.au was the creation and labour of love of Ned O’Meara.

Behind the scenes making it all technically possible was Luke Summers (who also contributed some great articles), whilst Luke O’Meara (son of Ned) was the magic behind images and video tutorials (and other good stuff).

After 3 years of keeping the Australian domain name industry honest and on its toes, Ned passed the baton to Robert Kaay in May 2018.
