Tag - Domain name ethics
Now that the redesign of our backend system is nearly complete, it's time to move on to the phase we've been internally calling Gandi V4. It will consist of an optimization of our website (for speed, usability, etc) and the introduction of Domain name and Web Hosting tools and web interfaces that some of you have been requesting for months, or even, in some cases, for years.
We believe in domain ethics – your domain is more than just a name, it’s your online presence, your company, profile or project. It should be protected and you should get what you want and what you expect with no tricks. But, you say, surely all domain names are the same? Why should it matter who you buy a domain from as they all come from the same place anyway, right? Well no, unfortunately that’s not true. There are many reasons why different domain providers offer better or worse deals, and it's not just price.
Ah a good question. Who is this strange and wonderful French domain registrar and hosting provider, and why should I believe they are wonderful? What does it mean to believe in domain name ethics? Well to understand Gandi you have to go back to the very beginning...
