Church technology, creativity, and new thinking with’s Blessing Mpofu

With just over 2 billion websites on the world wide web, forever increasing second by second and minute by minute, a high percentage of websites don a .com domain. In fact, almost 75% of all globally registered TLDs are .com — that’s just over 150 million.

While most tend to choose and use .com as their preferred extension, there’s a growing number of personal and corporate brands selecting non .com domains to represent their digital presence.

One such brand, ChurchMag, has been online since the latter 2000s, having branded its online presence using a country code top-level domain, also known as a ccTLD.

Officially known by most domain industry professionals as a domain hack, has hacked and carved out sizable market space for online venues providing resources for church technology, creativity and new thinking.

At the helm of this organization is its Proprietor and Chief Editor Blessing Mpofu. As self-proclaimed, he’s simply a guy changing the world by way of Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.

In a recent podcast, I learn from Blessing what led a founding technologist and visionary to launch ChurchMag using the .ag extension country code for Antigua and Barbuda.

In addition, we discuss Blessing’s journey from a subscriber to becoming Chief Editor of ChurchMag. Highlighted in this interview is a highly viewed article Blessing wrote about surviving a pandemic exactly one year before COVID.

Lastly, I get Blessing to open up a bit, confiding in me with a few domain confessions — one domain purchase inspired by Trevor Noah himself.

Without further ado, hit play and discover how Blessing is changing the world one resource at a time. Enjoy
