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 blog in 2012.


  1. Hello Konstantinos,

    Many Legacy Domainers, are missing the Rick Schwartz Traffic Conference. Yes there should be a Domainer conference MINUS , the Webmaster (Google Advertising Advocates) that have swooped into our Industry, spreading their Google Doctrine, of how New GTLDs and New TLDs are a Great Online Advertising Strategy. What a Travesty. Rick Schwartz, saw all this coming, and retired. Traffic Conferences Knew the power of the .COM Profit Centers as the superior Marketing Strategy. Our Industry has been over run with FALSE Marketing Strategy Truths at the hands of Google Lobbying Money and Influence Peddling.

    Even Frank Schilling (Googles Acquired Poster Boy) is now drinking the Google Kool-Aid, Marketing Doctrine for his High Profit bottom line.

    The Really Smart Money Domainers that are Educated on Marketing Strategies are laughing, watching this whole Circus Event. They own .COM Profit Centers and are holding on for the inevitable surge of the massive Pool of Money that will reposition out of New TLDs into .COM Profit Center Marketing Strategy Assets.

  2. Interesting. I wonder what kind of cross-fertilization we might see.

    • Hello Joseph,

      By the way, we enjoy your Creative Mind for Marketing Intelligence. You grasp what others miss.

      ” Cross-Fertilization ” brought to the forefront in our minds a Marketing Strategy Concept Most are missing.

      Todays Domain Conferences are saturated with Confusing Cross-Current (Fictional Information) which Blurrs the Lines of Demarcation that signal Clear Investors information, which results in confusing End-Users on what Online Marketing Strategies are best for their Online Marketing Success. The Traffic Conferences Investors Intelligence Quotient, made the .COM Profit centers Superiority Quite Clear. Todays Conferences are rife with Google Advertisings Misleading and Self Serving Marketing Advice that often lead the uneducated into Googles Advertising Garden where Small and Medium sized Businesses wnid up being traffic Starved Failures.
