Sale of Tights.co.uk

There is some speculation that the sale of tights.co.uk on Domainlore.uk was not legitimate. I know both parties involved and it was a 100% genuine sale, as far as I know, they don't know each other. Even if they did, there is no chance they would have colluded or anything strange happening. They are both standup people in this industry. Without th...

Goodbye Twitter

Goodbye Twitter
I have finally decided to call it a day on Twitter - @GreyWingUK is no more, closing my account after 3 or 4 long years. The final straw was their censorship of Katie Hopkins, as many of you know I don't do censorship. Continuing on Twitter meant I was in agreement with their practices, I didn't want to be associated with that. During the lockdown,...

Direct Admin v cPanel

Direct Admin v cPanel
Like most, I recently heard that cPanel has announced substantial price hikes. Many out there are now contemplating Direct Admin as an alternative. I have been running Direct Admin for the last two years and can give a little bit of insight into it. Going back to the beginning, I was a cPanel user up until 2017. I changed to Direct Admin because I ...

24 hours in and .uk Trademark brown stuff hits fan?

Well, it's been less than 24 hours, and the brown stuff of .uk is already hitting the trademark fan. At least one name has already been placed into a suspended status. Barclaysmoney.uk now has the title of being one of the first to be immediately suspended. Something tells me that more are on their way. Now did Barclays complain? Did Nom do that th...

.uk rights and fake tags

I've not been following the .uk launch all that closely, I know there is a little bit of upset at the launch process. It is something I'm not getting involved in, and I didn't even sign the recent petition against the release process. What I did notice though, is that people are making a point out of new tags appearing. It is a fair point that if t...

I'm watching people who I once respected in this industry lose their credibility by referring to the revoke Article 50 Brexit petition which is on the Governments website.  We are in an industry where the power of bots is well known, it is what powers the drop catching world. All of a sudden once credible individuals (one especially) are disregardi...
