My New Domain

Just would like to shout a small announcement. After much consultation, I have finally decided to settle down with the domain tutiger.net, I have used godaddy.com to get the domain and of course I did use a coupon code to check out which helped me to lower the price of the domain. I only needed to pay a total of $16.38 for two years. The thing I liked about this deal is I paid them out of my PayPal account. So as you all would have known, the blog would still continue on being hosted by blogspot because I didn't get any hosting deal, it is still a rather expensive affair for me.

Honestly I have been eyeing for the (dot)com for quite a while and I knew from WhoIs that the domain would be expiring by the 27th Feb 2008 so I decided to wait to see if the owner would renew the domain. I seems to have a feeling that the owner could possibly be giving up on the domain because the domain is still unused until now nor is it parked to any hosting site.

I truly appreciate the advise I got from Chin Nee and Jazzmint because they have really taught me a lot on the domain stuffs. Anyway I should have done my homework earlier. Luckily I have also found a very nice blogpost to regarding the matter - How to snatch an expiring domain by Mike Davidson. After reading the post, I don't think I would have the patience to wait any further so I registered for the (dot)net instead, as what the two nice ladies have recommended to me earlier. See I should have listened to them earlier!!

Let's see what happens to the (dot)com after 75 days (May 12th).
