The Qt Company pays for qt.io. We can ask them to sponsor the domain also in the future, but we cannot expect it.

If we had fee-lancing contributors, then it might make sense to set up a bounty system. I also find models like this https://www.patreon.com/bjorn interesting. I guess that spare-time contributors have a different motivation though.

What is IMO more important is, to turn qbs.io into an attractive landing page. It should become more clear, that Qbs is no longer a The Qt Company project. Might be worth to pay a web designer to come up with a professional looking.  Any volunteers? https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QBS-1341
