Testimonials

I’ve met Goran almost 6 years ago, aside his web development knowledge and his amazing communication skills which are on top, but one thing that caught my mind from the start is his passion for the thing he does.

I didn’t have any experience with domains, and I kept getting various offers for domains I wasn’t sure I needed. That was all cleared when I hired Goran’s company, and now my company is profiting from the domains we do have.
