About Us

I’d like to say a few words about ‘us’ but it would be grammatically incorrect.

It’s really just ‘me’ – my name’s John Kerr. I’ve spent more years than I care to remember working in IT.

There was an ‘us’ until two years ago when my wife and partner, Jo, passed away. That prompted a radical re-think. We’d been running a fairly successful niche website selling real (yes – tangible) items. You don’t need to know about it, but the whole business, including website (partworks) was handed over to a new team. I loved running that, we met some amazing customers along the way, but handling heavy, physical goods gets a bit wearing when you reach retirement age.

Our company – Many a Gem – owned a few domain names, so it wasn’t a difficult decision to carry on with an alternative web business selling virtual items, ie domains. I’ve added a few over the past year or so. Many of them are New gTLDs. If you’ve read this far, chances are you’ll know all about these: new generic Top Level Domain extensions. There are now hundreds of them, either on stream or soon to be released.

Whatever you think about these new gTLDs, it looks like they’re here to stay. So, instead of trying to acquire a long, convoluted <dot>com to fit your business, you now have the opportunity to choose a much more meaningful combination of words before and after the <dot>. We only have a few, but if you find something here to take your fancy, I’ll be happy to work with you to get you set up.
