April is almost upon us yet again, which if you’re a domain holder means time to renew all your .eu domains that you got when .eu registration opened. I don’t like comparing prices with our competitors as it can get a little bit silly, but last night, for “a laugh”, I decided to check out […]

Since a couple of people have been asking about sourcing our logo for the tshirt competition I’ve made available the Blacknight logo in both Illustrator and EPS format. You can download them as a Zip file here. If you want to enter and win then what are you waiting for?
General registrations for .tel have been open for the last couple of days and it’s been interesting to see the level of interest being shown. Of course not everyone is going to take to .tel immediately, but it’s interesting to see what people are doing with their .tel domains… We’ve got our main brand up […]
Nominations close today for the 2009 Irish Internet Association Net Visionary awards If you think someone is worthy then get nominating now!
I’ve mentioned the .tel domains a couple of times in the past. Today at 3pm finally sees the arrival of “general registration” when anyone who wants to grab a .tel domain will be able to do so on a “first come, first served” basis without paying “over the odds”. You will be able to order […]
We have had one or two queries from people regarding the tshirt competition. Entry format – as we’re looking at design at this stage and not actual production then it’s not that important which format you choose. As long as we can view the artwork we will be happy, so jpeg or png is probably […]
Mark and I were away at WebhostingDay for most of last week, so I’ve come back now to a mountain of email. I’ve also got a nice little mound of new business cards, while I also gave my own business card out to just about anyone who was standing still. Like so many industry events […]
Just a quick, gentle, reminder to our non-Irish clientele. Tomorrow is a national holiday here in Ireland, so our offices will be closed. Technical support will be available during the hours mentioned previously. For those of you who are Irish (or want to be!) have a great day!
We’ve run competitions in the past. With most of them the prize was either a hosting plan or a domain or maybe even both. We haven’t given away non-hosting prizes in quite some time, apart from the hoodies a few weeks ago, so we thought it was about time that we did. So this time […]
We are delighted to be able to tell the world that we are now an ICANN accredited registrar! I’ve been attending ICANN events and trying to get to grips with the entire setup for the last couple of years and quickly realised that the only way we could really move forward was to become accredited. […]
Next week a couple of us will be travelling to Phantasialand, which is somewhere near Cologne, Germany. For the last few years I’ve been getting invites to attend WebhostingDay, but haven’t been able to actually attend. It should be a good opportunity for us to meet up with several of our clients, industry colleagues and […]
Next Tuesday is St Patrick’s Day, which is the biggest holiday of the year in Ireland. As a result our offices will be closed all day. Our helpdesk, however, will be operating from 10 am until 4 pm, but with reduced staff numbers. If you have a dedicated server or colocated machine with us please […]
