At first, I thought, that continuing blogging at a domain name like deuts.blog could be an interesting idea.
But then, Automattic revealed they’re charging $30 for each .blog domain. That’s thrice the price of a regular .com, .net, or .org domain name.
So, no thanks!
Foreword: The registrar transfer for the domain name, “deuts.net”, is really giving me headaches. I can’t wait for the 7 days buffer before the losing registrar actually releases the domain name to the new one. So, we may encounter problems related to this transfer, such as we may sometimes find this site offline.
Anyway, let’s get to the real purpose of this post. Just received my letter today. It was dated January 23, 2008 and this is what it has to say:
Thank you for you participation in the November 2007 Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exam. Your results are listed below:
At your service,
Jorelle O. Tuvillo, CPA, CIA
Indeed, the only thing that’s permanent in this world is change.
Because of increasing projects and a need for more webspace, more bandwidth, and more domain names to accomodate into one hosting account, I’ve decided to shift from a previous hosting account with PlogHost to a new one in Bluehost.
I have been with PlogHost for almost two years now, and my experience with them has proved to be satisfactory. I experienced a number of downtimes during those times, but yeah, not really to the extent of reaching an alarm level. Overall, considering the cost at which I was paying them, it’s all worth it. I would really recommend Ploghost to bloggers and website owners who are especially just starting out and residing in the Philippines. Add that to the fact that the owner, Abe of Yugatech.com, has been very accomodating to my request for a leeway as my account was overshooting my monthly bandwidth limit for the month of January 2008.
Anyway, the year is yet very young, and a good way to start it off with a new webhost and a new design. Looking forward to more blogging years with Bluehost.
P.S. If you are seeing this post, it means that the shift has been successfully accomplished and you’re already reading this post from the new host.
How would you like to have that .pro domain name?
.Pro is the premium domain that provides instant branding visibility for licensed professionals of all types looking to promote themselves on the internet. .pro is ideal for professionals who want to establish a unique presence online.
It’s actually quite a bit pricey as compared to the .com, .net, or .org counterparts. But hey, it’s something that could be unique. You could even grab a domain name that’s long been unavailable in the web.
I’m thinking about jotuvillo.cpa.pro.
