An email from one of my webhosts:
3. Select the number of years you wish to Renew this domain name for. You will be charged MYR ### per year for renewing this domain name. If you are conducting serious business from chanlilian.net, it is suggested to renew it directly for 5 years or greater in order to avoid any deactivation at any point in time.
Wakahkah, do I have serious business to conduct? A social escort or match-making website? Nay….not in a million years. So, I suppose I renew for one year?
Frankly, I depend on my local webhosts to remember for me. I don’t mind paying a little bit by getting the service from them. I have SIX, ENAM, 6, å…,! domains so how to manage if I don’t have these two nice guys to explain from the head to tail for me?
So, who are my webhosts? PaulTan and Bryan. This site is hosted by HulksSolution and PaulTan has so far kept it very well. No downtime, no hack , no server attack and whatever nightmares faced by webmasters. Bryan hosted my parenting site. So far, so good too.
Time flies when one is having a good time. I am going to be a year old blogger, having started in October 2004 with blogspot. Then, I moved here to my own domain in February 2005, which is barely 5 months after I started blogging.
So, people, ever thought of getting your own domain and webhosting? Cheap, cheap only. Less than RM200 per year and even cheaper if you can do all the stuffs yourself. I had written about the tricky parts in webhosting too. And also elaborate why pay when you can have free services from Blogspot, Blogsome etc etc.
Even if you have no intention of doing it yet, why not buy a domain name? It is very cheap and thrilling to own a domain with your name. Don’t know how to buy domain name? Ask the IT guys like LiewCF or Bryan. Or if you want it explain in simple language, just email me.
So, toast to one more year of 5xmom aka chanlilian.net! YammmmmSengggggggg!
