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. Good job Konstantinos. You have a great blog.

  2. i would rather listen to Billionaire winner and investor in .TV like Jeff Bezos rather than two bums like Berkens and Schwartz who missed out on .TV and on CryptoCurrency Domains in my opinion they are old windbags who are out of touch. these two dinosaurs do not own any great crypto domains period. They are low budget millionaires and the guy who owns and will be a Billionaire at the end of the day. IMO
