An epic #domain: Someone registered Rob.Monster 👾

Rob Monster is the founder and CEO of Epik, the domain services company that has recently found itself in the eye of a major data breach storm.

Without a doubt, the domain Rob.Monster is a great gift if your name is “Rob Monster” and there’s at least one person by that name who lives in the Netherlands.
