Go for own domain

I have been so struggle and reluctant to get an own domain for blogging since many months ago. As I know I would be spending more time in manage it and at the same time at Blogspot too. I just don't want to waste the time and money if I couldn't do so. This is a long run decision for me. No point if one day I longer like to blog and just abandon it, it going to waste all my effort.

The urge of getting it is becoming so strong lately. Everywhere is talking about getting own domain and shifting to own domain. Somehow I know one day, for those doing paid post we no longer can sustain for long under Blogspot. For doing paid post in own domain, I can see the brighter future.

Just 2 days ago, I saw my PR meter reading from PR 3 drop to 2, how can that be leh?? My blog is doing better than before. I don't know where goes wrong. Check everywhere is reading as 2 now..but tigaP still not change. Hmm..I can't do anything for it, that is how Google ranked me. Once Beelibaala found out from Google why there are many Blogspot is getting a N/A rank. It is because Google will not going to give any review on PR ranking for new bloggers sign up with free blog hosting site (like Blogspot). Another one is from LovelyMummy, this piece of news still not so sure yet..tigaP will kick out all Blogspot postie in November. Soon or later free host will not be favor in the blogging world. So I think it is the time now.

I have been start searching some web hosting packages info and try to make some comparison. Prices are vary depends on what are the things the hosting company include for you. Today I even found free hosting blog from benghan. Somehow it is quite attracted to me..coz FREE ma..just only need to pay domain registration fee. Most important is getting a domain registration done first, hosting package are yet to choose.

I'm start thinking a domain name now and I have no idea what name to give. Will stick to go on a .com at the back. Basically I just check out that judychow.com is taken, left only with other extension. Lemonjude, judelittle, judethelittle is fully available. I have also think of some other names like livetolove and littleme but all are not available anymore. Many others too, but all those I can think of is no longer available for .com. Any good suggestion? Hopefully I can fully roll out everything on 1/1/2008, don't know possible or not.

Hi Judy, thanks for recommending. If you can confirm a domain name that you'd like to purchase, please purchase yourself at www.exabytes.com.my or I can do it for you. Once you got your own domain, do let me know and I will create a hosting account and your new blog will be up in the next 24 hours. It's pretty fast.

Sorry to hear your PR is dropped. Luckily my PR no drop, because it is still UNRANKED... sigh...
It is really good to have own domain. I can see you've earned quite many at here, $ is not a problem for you to payoff domain name and hosting.
