  1. Thanks for the update Konstantinos

    I know you used to promote or like DAN and I was nearly tempted to give them a go, until I put the figures in a spreadsheet.

    However, once GoDaddy bought them DAN was also added to by blacklist, the culture of GoDaddy comes from their founder who I gather is still their biggest shareholder.

    My experience of GoDaddy was never positive, either they did not include things others did, or they were misleading, in their early days they counted a correction to their mistake as a change of ownership and put a ransom on my being able to leave. Then when I found out about him hunting and killing Elephants I had to give a life ban.

    The culture seems to have lived on, friends tell me that they feel conned and I say “I told you so”.

    Now is surely the time to build an alternative to DAN but with better terms, it is a no brainer because sooner or later GoDaddly will come along waving it’s wallet with an offer to buy you out.
