I have been in domain business for over 10 years now. In the end of 2000 I set up my domain and hosting company Domeny.org and sold it couple of years later to a Pan-European hosting company Active 24. Since April 2009 I am the full-time domainer. I have gathered around four thousand of domains in my portfolio – mainly .pl and .eu generics. Some of my best names are money.eu, geld.eu, pr.pl, r.pl or historia.pl (history in Polish). I follow the current trends both in Poland and abroad. I think that foreign markets are the best source of inspiration and ideas to implement in Poland. I see business from global and European perspective. My next big goal is to build multi-service ccTLD conglomerate in Europe with domain fund (ddfund.eu), auctions, brokerage (brokerdomen.pl), appraisals, domain marketplace and other services.
