Short and Yet Hard Lesson on Choosing a Blog Host

This is just a quick reminder on the importance of choosing a hosting service when you are creating a new blog.  Don’t under estimate the bandwith requirements of your new blog because you’ll never know when it will hit or miss. It’s better to be sure than be sorry.

Here’s the story. When I created this blog, I never thought that I would exceed the 1GB bandwith limit offered by the free hosting service that comes with my domain registration. I was planning to upgrade to a free hosting after one year – just in time for the renewal of my domain. Continue reading

Netfirms Twitter Domain Purchasing Feature and Contest

Recently, one of the few domain registrars that I trust with my money (especially for .ca domain names) has launched a new feature: registration via Twitter.

Here is an example of registration via SMS to Twitter:

You send a Direct Message to Netfirms via Twitter asking us to register a domain name for you. If the domain name is available we will register it for you and automatically add it to your existing Netfirms Control Panel and bill to your current billing profile. The only prerequisite is that you add your Twitter username to your Netfirms Control Panel. Please visit our tutorial with full details on setting yourself up for domain registration via Twitter. The instructions should be completed once only and you’re good to go after that.
1. Log in to your Twitter account (You can use any of the available Twitter apps)
2. Send a dm to @netfirms with the following: reg
3. We will confirm by replying to you via direct message at which point the domain will be added to your Netfirms Control Panel. The domain is now ready to be used.

To celebrate the new feature, Netfirms has launched a contest (see the Netfirms Contest here) that runs until October 7th. You can win a MacBook or one of four iPod Touches just by doing one of two simple things:

  • Tweeting about the contest
  • Registering a new domain name

If you are going to tweet about the contest, they ask that you use the following:
“Win a #free iPod Touch or Macbook from the @Netfirms #contest. Domain registration services via Twitter”

To make it easy, just head on over to the contest page, and scroll down until you find “Click here to post this to your Twitter account”. Makes it easy, quick, and earns you an entry.

Don’t forget, you have to be following @Netfirms to have a shot at winning a prize, so don’t just push out the message, or you won’t qualify.

One retweet equals one entry per day. One domain registered equals one entry.

What does having more routes to register domains mean? Well, for me, it means that I’ll be spending even more money on my domain buying hobby. (I sometimes swear I should be banned from buying domains unless I have the content and design ready to go live.)
