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. Waste of time, Americans will never want a .us domain , because we don’t acknowledge anything that is America only, because America is everything. I even had a friend ask me what .US stands for.

  2. I have owned several .us domains over the years and developed them all into small business models. The majority of them generated income, pay their own renewals, and bring in a profit each year. As a .us investor, I may attend this webcast.

  3. 2016.us just sold for $13000 We have 9088.us and are looking for more.us numerics.
