Every couple of years I refresh my website with the goal of demonstrating my personal and professional growth. In 2019, I decided to transition from my previous domain of DanHuynh.co to DanHuynh.io. The .co domain name is quite confusing for people because it’s so close to .com. Particularly for my email address, some people accidentally tack on the “m” at the end assuming it’s a .com. I chose the *.io extension because it reflects there’s been a trend tech startups that have adopted it. It’s also a short and memorable TLD.
The new website is run off of WordPress like the former website. I’m running with the GeneratePress theme which has been known to be great from a performance perspective. I’m using WP Super Cache plugin to help increase the speed of the site. I also installed an SSL certificate so the website sits behind HTTPS.
DanHuynh.io is going to be a hub for product management writings and resources. It’s a way for me to reflect on my growth as a product person, whilst trying to institutionalize and share knowledge I’ve acquired over the years. I hope you enjoy your stay. Please feel free to connect with me — I’m always happy to talk product.
