Don Rankin is a good friend of mine, and as it is his birthday today, I thought I’d give him a shout-out!
Happy Birthday Don. You don’t look a day over 65. 😀
Given his longevity in the domain industry (even before me!), he has seen so many changes in the .au space over many years. For example, when he started out, you couldn’t sell domains unless they went with the business. Unbelievable!
Don has mostly been a developer of domain names, and he has had some absolute crackers over the years. But he’s slowly winding back on his portfolio, and concentrating on other interests (he loves fishing).
Don has also been an auDA Demand Class member for many years, and has always been willing to help others with advice on anything to do with domain names. A nicer guy you could not hope to meet.
For those that may be interested in what Don has achieved, you may care to listen to this podcast interview he did with me a couple of years ago.
