Cat

A Truly Free Domain

Kitten with Money

If you have ever had a personal website, like me, you would know that your url to your website is important

However if you are also don’t like to pay for things that you can get for free, such as webhosting, you end up with a url that is not as nice as a top level domain.

There are some free domains at the top level but the never have the same feeling of a .net or .com.

So how did I get a .net without using my own money? Well I did but not through a credit card or check I did it by filling out online surveys. They offer cash out via paypal then all I needed was to buy the domain using the survey money.

I had enough in about 3 months just filling out surveys during my usual time on the web.

I ended up buying the domain through namecheap. They offer WhoIsGuard for free for the first year which is a great service so your personal details don’t show up in whois searches.

So it’s not entirely free but if you don’t value your time too much it’s not much work to do a few surveys and have a professional looking domain for your website.

And yes that is my cat! He is a year old now but still very cute, when I bought my last car the seller insisted on cash, I just couldn’t resist the photo opportunity.

The house is finished!

Have you ever noticed that as time goes buy your passion for different things start to wain? I do it seems some things that you thought was important is not so important any more. Like blogging for instance :P

It has been quite a while now mainly because work has been heating up for me. I went on a week long trip to China visiting different customers.

And most importantly our house was finished and we moved in about 4 weeks ago Yey!

And we are loving it, the cat hasn’t adjusted too bad either. But the money is now flowing out finishing off the house. Oh well such is the life of a mortgagee.
