Online Domain, a domain blog 5 years later…

It has been 5 years since I started this blog in a hot summer in 2012. It has been a fun ride with ups and downs.

Here are my all time stats:

  • 481,966 visitors
  • 3,653 posts

I was not totally dedicated in the first year and a half and I was still learning how to be a domain name blogger. In the past three years and a half had about 300k of views and more than 4,500 comments on average per year.

It is not like I never thought to stop blogging in the past 5 years but I won’t because too many people would be happy if I did. I have received my share of threats over the years.

You may have noticed that the blog moved recently to a new https:// address after installing an SSL certificate. I also made some speed improvements. I still need to improve speed by 25% or more.

In the past few months I had some hacker problems. Everything has been resolved now and I have a double password protection and an alert installed informing me of any attacks.

Finally I would like to thank my newest sponsor Efty and my older sponsors Escrow.comDomainAgents.comBoston Ivy and

There is some space available for new sponsors. Please contact me if interested.

  7. I’ve come to like and appreciate this blog quite a bit and am glad it’s here. I also don’t have any problem at all with you having as one of your paid advertisers either, even though I hate them now. 🙂 Good for you even. In fact I had the same kind of argument on this very blog a while ago when I was defending Michael Cyger here regarding such things. may suck now, but is AOK in my book. 🙂

  19. Congrats Konstantinos!
    It has to be so very hard to maintain a blog daily, come up with so many new stories when it seems there is nothing to write about, figure out what to say w/all of the new gTLDs coming out, people will either love or hate what you say when their own investments may be affected one way or another. Voice your true opinion when you feel someone we respect has done something that would tarnish the brilliance of our own Domaining Community. etc. etc. etc.
    Your hard work and true voice is greatly appreciated.
    Just keep up the great work brother!

  21. Congrats, one of my favorite bloggers because you give your opinion and share some of your data. Wish you many more years!
