gTLD Madness! Team Schilling vs Team Schwartz, Part I

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Domainer of the year is a new gTLD applicant ;-)

"I voted for Frank Schilling, aware that three time’s a charm but four time’s a true recognition of a man’s worth. Like Alexander the Great, Frank’s too large for this humble industry. Some said his jersey now needs to be retired, as we ran out of hats! Either way, the future looks bigger and better, with Uniregistry assuming a key role in the roll-out of gTLDs".
