About Konstantinos Zournas

I studied Computer Engineering and Computer Science in London, UK and I am now living in Athens, Greece. I went online in 1995, started coding in 1996 and began buying domain names and creating websites in 2000. I started the OnlineDomain.com blog in 2012.


  1. With so much hullabaloo about .COM versus the nTLDs, some domainers get caught up in that manufactured feud and forget .NET. Week after week, I’ve been documenting a resurgence in LLL.net prices, which bodes well. And some reseller recently purchased what remained of LLLL.net domains, which is optimistic. Personally, I had a $4k offer for a Spanish .NET last week and have sold others in 2015.

    People will argue (and should), but there’s a lot more out there to argue about than .XYZ.
