The Blog

We like to share our thoughts on certain subjects - domains, online tech, current affairs etc. We'll try to keep it as active as possible with regular updates, it will be both satirical and serious at times.

The Department For Comedy is back again, one week the DCMS are trying to ban porn, the next they are banning drop catching software. I dowonder if the next law that comes out of there will be to ban the rain. Anyway, this time it however it may have real fallout for domainers. This Department for Culture, Media and Sport has no real work to do, so they have to invent problems to solve. It’s like the Department from Yes Minister. It doesn’t really have anything serious to administer. it's full of staff that other departments in Government don’t want.…
This one seemed to slip out unnoticed last week or two, except for a few techies who flagged it up as being massively important. Scratch that, it's bloody horrifying. The EU is making a power grab for the control of the internet, by suspending, or blocking traffic to and from some domain names. It's not often techies get a bit panicked, this one seems to have them all united in speaking out. The tope and bottom of it seems to be this. If this proposal passes, tithout a UK court getting involved, UK sites can be brought offline by judges…
The BBC just can't stop with its pro EU propaganda, this time they held a debate packed with Pro EU guests in an attempt to show that the majority and mainstream want to stay in the EU. Add to that, the host Victoria Derbyshire being blatantly biased in her views and treatment of Brexit speakers - constantly interrupting them - and we have all the ingredients for another sham program. Unfortunately once again they have been spotted trying to rig another debate, the organisation is no longer credible and should be disbanded. Just as the American's have now realised when…

Just Acquired Agreed.uk

We've managed to purchase the domain name Agreed.uk at auction. Although the name does not come with its little .co.uk brother, we are happy to add it to our future development pile. GreyWing is still of the opinion that the future is very much in the .uk domain name, we still expect to see a reduction in the number of sites using .co.uk as their primary site in the coming years. Our initial thoughts for the name are that we can use it for a nice finance site. The word "Agreed" gives weight to a loan brand for those that…
I wanted to add my own little 2p to the debate about Nominet suspending domain names without a Court Order. The debate seems to have seen Nominet take a fair bit of stick for this, but I don’t think it is fair and I want to give some real examples of why I think they are right. Some of the businesses I am involved in are in the lending sector; I own brands like Quick Loans, Easy Loans and about another 20 active sites. We receive emails on a daily basis from people who have been victims of deceptions from…
