Hosting Jobs says
Expected to see NameCheap on this list. NameBright, NameSilo, and Epik are probably mostly domain investor transfers I assume.
What happened to the old Moniker? Did they lose so many domains that their current numbers are so low as to not make it onto the list? Man that was a shambles.
they are down to roughly 500k domains from 1.5 million before the collapse. shambles indeed.
