    Default (USA) Ready to buy Kvant, where to purchase?

    I am in the USA.
    Is https://lasershowprojector.com even Kvants domain? It seems awfully generic for a top level company as well as being registered by someone called Porkbun
    It doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

    Crime and fraud appears to be a staple element of the laser industry and I want to make sure I conduct my business in the correct place.
    Any assistance would be great appreciated.

    If you do a google map on the address in Sanford it is some country house with a yard that needs some irrigation. Nice piece of land, though. I'd put some fruit trees on it. Anyway, I don't know what it has to do with anything.

    If you are going to purchase a Kvant projector, you can just call Pangolin.

    That being said, the Pangolin website does re-direct visitors to lasershowprojector.com. And I agree that the whois information for the site looks strange. However, I suspect that "porkbun" is merely a funny nickname that someone used when they set up the website. (My first guess would be Ryan, although it could have been anyone...)

    Like I said, if you are concerned, just call them on the phone. They can do the sale over the phone if you want.

    Hehe, not me this time

    It IS interesting though. I don't really have many details on it. "Porkbun" seems just to be another domain registrar, similar to Godaddy?

    I know we did purchase lots of domains over time, with different people leading that charge... Bill, Justin, Paulo/Vivian, Holger, etc. Perhaps Paulo porchased it, and did so through Porkbun? Or that's where it was originally registered and we just purchased the naming rights? The page says it was purchased in 2015... a lot has change internally since then.

    Anyways, I can verify that the site is legitimate. If any questions, just feel free to call us at 1-800-PANGOLIN any time day or night! I'm not sure about the concern about the site being "generic", it is a Shopify template, well organized with all products and associated pricing, intended to be Easy-to-use!

    Thanks!
