As many long-time readers know, I was the founder and publisher of Domainer – but last year, due to personal circumstances, I sold to Robert Kaay. I needed someone to carry on with what I had started, and Rob was someone who I believed had the passion and will to do so. He has obviously put his own stamp on Domainer as he is entitled to do.
That said, I do love the direction that Rob and Ed have taken with their podcasts, and these now seem to be going from strength to strength. Those two certainly make a great team.
Having had a long time away, I missed “my baby” – but I particularly missed writing about everything to do with .au. So I had been considering starting another publication, but when I mentioned this to Rob, he suggested that I should fulfil my craving by coming back to Domainer as a Guest Editor. So here I am on a trial run!
What Can You Expect?
Given the auDA Board’s recent decisions to signal that they intend getting rid of (and/or relaxing) a lot of the red tape and prohibitions surrounding .au, I am filled with positivity about the future of domain investing in Australia. And that’s what I’ll mostly be writing about.
However, I also believe there are still some roadblocks ahead, and I’ll be giving my constructive and considered opinions about these based on over a decade of experience in the .au space.
Until next time.
