My 1st Domain name (Getting start)

When i started getting involve in the webmaster world, i start it part time with my own interested, i started to find all related information that i did not learn in my academic last time. During my academic time, i know what is Domain Name, i know what is Hosting, i know what is FTP, but i did not know how it works.

Try and Error
After i involve into Webmaster world, I started to collect all related tools, mostly are free tools, such as free hosting and ftp software, i started to participate in forum, the most visit forum will be WebmasterMalaysia.com, i meet a lot of senior webmaster there, they share a lot of useful information with me, after that i started to do testing. Try and error.

Until 1 day, i feel that a webmaster no matter is part time or full time, i must have at least 1 domain name. So i started to open a thread at forum, asking where to buy cheapest domain. Here is the link to that thread. After calculating the cheapest registrar, i make my decision to purchase from namecheap.com.

I Buy Domain from
The price would be $8.88, but some member in forum provide me PROMOCODE, when i purchase, it cost me $7.99 with the promocode. The package also free “whoisGuard” for 1 year, which can protect your information.

Pay with
Before purchase the domain, i need to have my payment method. NameCheap accepting credit card direct and also pay pal. For a conservative guy like me, some more 1st time purchase online, i will choose to pay with pay pal. I buy pay pal fund from a person in lowyat.net, whom my friend recommend to me, after he transfer for me, i have a problem to accept the fund, pay pal need a credit card or debit card to activate the account.

Oops… write so much still not yet write my domain name, I bought LittlePenang.com from NameCheap. That is the beginning of the webmaster life. So what is your 1st domain?
