An Interview with Founder Todd HanWe've been around for 10 years, but do you really know us? We did an interview with our founder, Todd Han, to give you some insight into our past, present, and future.
What gave you the idea to start Dynadot?
I was dissatisfied with the control panels of the major registrars at the time. So I decided to start my own registrar. I thought I could program the control panel in a few months, get a million domains, and retire on the renewals. Looking back I was incredibly naive. Running a business is the hardest thing I have ever done. Sometimes blind ignorance gets you further than courage and wisdom.
How did you get Dynadot started?
The company was started from my home. I ran it myself for the first three years, writing the software, keeping the books, and doing customer service. I hired my first employee in 2005.
What has been the most rewarding thing about starting Dynadot?
I am thrilled with the company culture we have built. Everyone excels at their job, and when we combine our abilities we become something special. Talent has no standard look or package, so we ended up with a diverse and quirky group of people. Despite our differences we get along exceedingly well.
What was your happiest day at work?
I will never forget the first order I received on the website. I was so excited, jumping up and down in my home office. It was only a $7.99 order, but it meant the world to me.
Where do you see Dynadot in another 10 years?
Great software takes decades to build. Even though I believe we already have the best registration platform in the industry, I know we can do even better. I plan to remain here at Dynadot to make sure that happens.
What is your ultimate goal with Dynadot?
I want to build a well run business that gives exceptional service and value to our customers. I know domain registrars don't have the sex appeal of the latest Silicon Valley startup. But to me there is nothing more exciting than a company that executes with extreme precision, at breakneck speeds, with perfect strategy.
What is the best advice anyone ever gave you?
Live a full and happy life. That is what my grandmother did and she is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. I miss her.
