The past few years we had quite a collection in domain names. Most of the domains were personally sponsored and paid for out of the pockets of the founders. We have had several internal meetings on improving the stability of the organisation in regards of a long-term future as well as reducing the monthly cost on an immediate basis.
For this we came to the conclusion that several domain names right now are rather unnecessary as we can easily use subdomains for several of these sub aspects of our project.
We therefor have decided to discontinue about 30 to 40 domain names for the time being that were not planned to be used for a longer time.
Most translations of our main website will also continue via subdomains and therefor drastically reduce our yearly bills.
We will still have at least 40 to 50 active domain names and brand names that remain relevant to the project in this phase and therefor we have made careful selections on the domain names that we will no longer need moving forward.
