      When it comes to domainers I think you are right, from the small business standpoint $14.99 is not that big of a deal holding one or two domains. Blake Irving has shifted the focus on providing small business tools as a top priority. Investors also know that domain registrations is a very small margin business. They want to hear about other bigger margin products.

      When the company goes public I think there will be more pressure on management to deliver on higher margin products and the domain side will not be as prominent.
