What's up with the greek domain?

No, we're not moving to Greece. Even though we love souvlaki and tzatziki, those are thing readily available in Cyprus as much as they are in Greece. Although, I could do with better mbougatsa here in Nicosia...


Anyway, enough talk about food. As many of you might have noticed, we even got a couple of emails from worried customers thinking our business is relocating, we have purchased a new domain name, buytech.gr. There were multiple reasons for this additional domain, and this is a good chance to explain them.


  • We needed a clean domain name. Our primary domain is buytechcy.com (both domains point to the same website). Buytech.gr maintains our brand name. It also points out that we speak Greek.
  • We are preparing a Greek language version of our website.
  • And, following up from point 2 above, with a Greek language version, we hope to soon expand our services in the Greek market.

In fact, there's no primary and secondary domains, both buytechcy.com and buytech.gr are official domains of Buytech Ltd (Cyprus).

We refrain from buying the buytech.com.cy domain, as we do not agree with the way the government is handling the .com.cy domain registration procedure. It is so old-fashioned and so bureaucratic that reading the guidelines made us cringe.
