This is the mostest biggestest update related to Great Quizzard’s Blog ever (until now that is). After almost two years of residing at greatquizzard.blogspot.com, my blog’s URL is now www.AnkurB.info. Time to update your bookmarks everyone! Don’t worry, all old links will still work, but those who link back to me are requested to make the change on their sites. Please note that simply entering ‘ankurb.info’ doesn’t work right now, although I’m trying to sort that out. Till then, please use www.ankurb.info as the URL.
I’d planned this all along, an April 1st launch so that everybody would think it was a joke – and then be shocked when they found out it was true. That, would make them remember this for a long time.
Rach and Prashanth had been pestering me to buy hosting for quite some time (scrooges, both of ’em), so I’d been checking out plans. I was thinking of taking a domain from Yahoo! Domains. I’d almost clicked on the pay button when I thought I should check out others too, and found that ChaloPapa, I mean er, GoDaddy, the world’s largest web hosting provider was offering a sale of .info domains at $1.21 per year. Naturally, I snapped it up.
It’s ‘burn with jealousy’ time now. Not only did I get my own domain name, it comes with FREE hosting from GoDaddy with 5 GB of storage and 2.5 GB of data transfer per month, with everything in their Economy Plan hosting package thrown in, and some more. Must say though, GoDaddy’s interface is really cluttered, and Yahoo’s looks so much better compared to that.
And why did I go in for a .info domain name? Apart from the fact that it was cheaper, I don’t offer any commercial services (since I’m not a male prostitute) so I didn’t need .com; I don’t run an ISP so I don’t need .net; and I’m not an organization (despite my roly-poly size) so I didn’t need .org either.
