    If one buys a name on the aftermarket, does the 6 month ban on selling it apply?

    Hi Joe,

    As any sale trasnfer would be via change of registrant and not a new registration there are no limitations on resale.

    Cheers

    And now for the personal news....

    I recently resigned from my position, and tomorrow will be my last day working at Drop.

    So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for making the last two years exciting, challenging, and above all fun!

    I leave Drop happy, knowing that the team here will continue to deliver exceptional service and outstanding results.

    Working with the Fabulous team was one of the most rewarding working experiences of my professional life, through which I have made friendships that I know will continue to grow stronger over time. Having said that, I feel similarly about many of our customers. Over time many of my customer relationships genuinely developed into personal friendships. So I hope none of you will delete me from your facebook accounts :)

    So where to from here? Can't tell you that yet, sworn to secrecy, but watch this space.

    Best Regards,
    George Pongas
