Investment firm to acquire domain name registrar NameSilo - Domain Name Wire: Domain Name…

Sad news as I’ve finished moving thousands of domains there. Soon they have to squeeze their customers for profit as a publicly traded company –> a change for the worse. And basically all registrars that got acquired either got worse or went down the drain. So many examples of it, moniker, fab, and recently enom. Tucows spent far more, 84mill on enom, and shortly after you couldn’t even get a reply from support until one to two months. I’ve stopped using escrow.com after they were acquired, everything just changed for the worse shortly after. Key person Brandon Abbey stayed on, just like the NS guys are staying on. He left shortly after though, as these ownership changes never go over well. No reason to believe NameSilo is going to be any different. Guess I’ll start looking for a new registrar home, again… sigh.
