We’re sorry to announce that effective from today January 4th 2017, DomainTree has decided to close it’s online store down.
This decision has not been taken lightly and we have had a fantastic time over the last 3 years helping some amazing customers to set up their online business and watching them grow. Impacted customers have been contacted to outline their options for ensuring continuity of service.
DomainTree was a GoDaddy reseller and despite a promising start to our venture, lots of promises were made by the company and very little were kept. It became increasingly difficult to build a profitable reseller business as part of a program that is totally US centric. with little understanding of business requirements in other parts of the world. Resellers also were being asked to compete in an environment of heavily subsidised offers available to customers who purchased directly from GoDaddy, which made things impossible for us. The program was also too restrictive in terms of delivering the products and services that our Australian customers were asking for.
Whilst we are winding up DomainTree, our blog will continue to operate as normal and with the additional time we will now have, we will increasingly we able to work on implementing some new and exciting features during the coming year.
We’re also in the midst of looking at new and exciting opportunities to bring back DomainTree in a manner that will give us full control over the business sometime in the future.
So for now it’s farewell to our retail customers, but we look forward to continue working with businesses globally through our blog to help you keep abreast of the latest business developments that will help your business grow.
