But each time I reach out, I’m disappointed to learn that they have no idea how it was stolen…until today.

We’re going to learn exactly how the KZRA.com domain name was stolen – because the hacker told the owners how he did it – and what you can do to protect your domain names.

How a Startup Founder Negotiated and Purchased Snappa.com – With Chris Gimmer

Chris Gimmer and his co-founder built a pretty slick piece of software called Snappa. I liked it so much I became a paying customer just nine months after their launch.

But nothing is ever as easy as it sounds, and in this interview Gimmer explains the details behind his thought process at each stage of his bootstrapped SaaS startup.
