Not happy: Domainer complaints about the DomainTools redesign

If you own pigeon shit, DomainTools won't improve them for you.

If you own pigeon shit, DomainTools won’t improve them for you.

The recently deployed redesign of the DomainTools interface, left many active domain investors wondering about the future of their domain portfolios.

While the user interface itself was practically the best ever, many focused on the lack of domain WHOIS beautification tools.

“I can’t believe DomainTools won’t help improve my crappy domains, they still look like pigeon shit on the WHOIS!” exclaimed domain investor, Maurice Bono from Astoria, NY.

“What is the point of rolling out a redesign then, I was hoping to see my triple word dashed geodomains sparkle and shine in the DomainTools output,” added Bono , visibly dejected.

DomainTools explained this alleged oversight, as an intentional contribution to establishing a higher standard of domain portfolio quality across the domainer community.

“Let’s face it, most domainers own crappy domain names some of which fall into the junk category; it is our job to display their sheer ugliness, not artificially improve them,” said DomainTools UI design team leader, Elijah Would, adding: “If you own pigeon shit, we will make sure they look just like that until you let them drop.”

The bottom line: if you own pigeon shit domain names, DomainTools won’t do anything to improve them for you; you should consider dropping them.

    On a serious note:

    Domaintools LISTENS.

    I congratulated DT on its new design, but asked if they could darken the font.

    They did so immediately and then emailed me to ask for my input about the change. (It’s beautiful.)

    All I can say is “WOW!”

    That kind of company response is a dream!



  2. I can confirm what Ms Domainer said.
    Yesterday I was a bit negative and then I talked offline to Tim Helming, Product Management Director of the company, and he was very friendly and open to hear our feedbacks and suggestions, including the new font and colors, some bugs in the layout and coding, etc.
    Now the layout has definitely improved.
    Congrats guys! 🙂
