[DNS] who really is the biggest?

[DNS] who really is the biggest?

Hi Rod,

Do you think claiming the title of the 'biggest whatever' means you are an ego maniac?

I remember this line on the home page of Domain Market Place

"The addition of these names takes our total number of domains for sale to over 3,700! This makes Domain Trading Post the largest Australian domain name aftermarket (sorry Netfleet, we've over taken you!).... "

Here's the link - http://www.domainmarketplace.com.au/aftermarket-news/14-over-2100-new-domain-names-listed-for-sale/

Regards

David Lye
Netfleet P/L
