When I started getting involved 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, most 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 webmasters 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 the forum, asking where to buy the cheapest domain. Here is the link to that thread (Apologize, as webmasterMalaysia.com No longer active). 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.
Before purchasing the domain, I need to have my payment method. NameCheap accepting credit card direct and also paypal. For a conservative guy like me, some more 1st-time purchase online, I will choose to pay with paypal. I buy paypal fund from a person in lowyat.net, whom my friend recommend to me after he transfers for me, I have a problem to accept the fund, paypal need a credit card or debit card to activate the account.
Oops… write a long article still yet mention my domain name, I bought LittlePenang.com from NameCheap. That is the beginning of the webmaster life. So what is your 1st domain?
