Anu votes to support Nominet Public Benefit Initiative

Anu have been a member of Nominet, the registrar for .uk domain name registrations, for longer than I can remember (the oldest domain in our account dates from 1994!). We have witnessed the rapid development of the domain name industry since the early days of the Internet. During this time a lot has changed at Nominet, and we’re just not convinced all of the recent changes are for the better.

I would like to thank Mr. Simon Blackler for giving a voice to dissatisfied Nominet members and organising a campaign to force an extraordinary general meeting, with a view to reorganising the board and refocusing Nominet on their core purpose.

That’s why we are backing the campaign and will be voting YES at the EGM on Monday 22 March.
